    In the context of the ever growing use of technology through e-learning and open-courseware, my paper presents a project that is being carried out by a consortium of twelve partners and is coordinated by the University of Maastricht. This project sets out to examine the evolution of the innovative modes of higher education provision in teaching and learning across Europe, the motivations for their emergence as well as the ways in which higher education management and governance have responded and adapted to such new modes of provision. In the highly competitive sector of HE, while attempting to enhance the quality of teaching and learning, the increasing range of teaching and learning providers (encouraging both new delivery models and the ‘unbundling of delivery’ through partnerships, spin-out organisations, franchising, etc.), has challenged the ‘traditional’ model of university and stimulated changes in the provision and management of higher education. My paper describes the project framework and a few of its preliminary results.
