CHER had been established only for a few years, and its initiators were looking for options to engage in common activities. One of the needs felt in a number of the partially newly established research centres in the field, was to train a next generation of higher education researchers in the changing higher education landscape of Western Europe, where higher education institutions were becoming larger, were forced to be more autonomous due to governmental funding cuts and as a result needed more professional administration.
