Welcome address by MARIHE Academic director at ELTE
"Since my personal involvement in teaching in MARIHE as Erasmus visiting scholar, I see the involvement of Eötvös Lorand University (ELTE), and my Centre for Higher Education and Innovation Research (CHEIR) within the Faculty of Education and Psychology, as adding the piece of the puzzle to the needs of higher education management.
