Summary:
Universities have been subject to functional change for quite some time. The many academic reforms, the call for increased labor market relevance in higher education, the new focus on Third Mission, rankings and indicators that are increasingly picking up the impact of research, and the opening up of higher education to non-traditional students are some of the challenges of the future. With the recognition of the scientific further education as a core task of the university beside research and teaching in the Austrian university law of 2002 / in the German university law of 1998 began a diversification of the scientific further education and an influence on the challenges of the universities. The scientific training can make a significant contribution to the design of the university challenges - so the thesis of this anthology. The Lifelong Learning (LLL) University of the Future shows a clear link to its socio-political environment, draws on proven, formal and non-formal cooperation with relevant actors in the city, economy and civil society and works with professionalized processes in educational counseling. international orientation and target group-specific teaching. The anthology addresses players in academic further education, professional associations, teachers, education and social scientists, actors in university development and policy, and those responsible for the Third Mission.
