The report on Resourcing Higher Education in the Flemish Community of Belgium is the first in a series of publications produced by the OECD's Resourcing Higher Education Project. This project aims to develop a shared knowledge base for OECD member and partner countries on effective policies for higher education resourcing through system-specific and comparative policy analysis. The review of resourcing in the Flemish Community of Belgium has a strong focus on the funding of operating costs, teaching and research in Flemish higher education institutions. It also analyses financial support for students, system-level frameworks governing human resources policy in higher education and key trends in higher education that will impact future higher education resourcing policy. Alongside analysis and comparison of Flemish resourcing policy approaches, it provides recommendations to support future refinement of policies.


Higher education in the Flemish Community

This chapter provides an overview of the main characteristics of the higher education system in the Flemish Community of Belgium, focusing on its organisation, key aspects of its performance in education and research and the form and level of the revenue streams on which its institutions depend. This contextual overview forms the background for the more detailed discussion of institutional funding for teaching and research, funding for student aid, frameworks for human resources and strategic policy steering that follows in the later chapters of the report.
