5 Relevant Laws and regulation The higher education system in Greece, and especially its university sector, is ruled in principle by the article 16 of the Greek Constitution, valid since 1975, and by the frame-law This law was introduced in 1982 and accounts for the major and most significant reform in the Greek higher education since 1932.

6 The major principle arising from article 16 of the Greek Constitution refers to the privileges of full autonomy and academic freedom reserved for the universities. At the same time, the Greek Constitution refers also to the state control upon the universities, which is carried out by the Ministry of National Education and Religious Affairs (YPEPTH) The need for state control stems primarily from the fact that, according to the Greek Constitution, universities are state-financed institutions. according to the Greek Constitution, university studies are free of charge. According to this principle, there are no fees for the Greek students. Nevertheless, the most recent legislation provides the possibility of setting tuition fees for postgraduate studies

7 Finance, financial management and other mechanisms for specific financial management Universities are financed mainly by the state. The regular budget for universities is revised by decision of the institution s Senate. The academic and most administrative staff receives salaries determined according to a set formula (rank and position, seniority and number of years worked) from the state budget. Teaching, research, operational expenses and the university infrastructure are also government financed.

8 State financing is provided to the universities in three parallel ways. 1. Covers directly the needs of the universities for personnel salaries. 2. Provides to the universities on a lump-sum basis and purposes to meet their needs for functional expenses and 3. Provides to the universities on an earmarked basis and purposes to fill their capital needs.

9 Further goals of this research The investigation of current application The development of evaluation criteria The identification of best practices The design and implementation of a database of best practices
