Professors Emeriti Network

Professors Emeriti Network

Professors Emeriti Network

Professors Emeriti Network was created on October 5, 2020. It is closely linked with the European Association of Professors Emeriti, Athens, Greece.

Participants in the network include professors emeriti in Slovenia, and the links to the professor emeriti in the following  countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Norway, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. The network is open and is expected to expand.

The fields of activities of professors emeriti in the network depend on their scientific field and requirements as they find them in work. They will collaborate by using Internet according to problems observed and will focus on actions needed and desired. The network is highly interdisciplinary.

The network’s secretary is Jože Gričar, Professor Emeritus, University of Maribor, Joze.Gricar@UM.si.

Retired Professors Entitlements for Access to University IT: Universities Policy. Report By Jože Gričar, March 2022, Joze.Gricar@UM.si.

We have been confronted with questions about the possibilities of retired professors being granted access to continued use of the university’s information technology (IT). We studied the problem only from the point of view of retired professors who do not have the title emerita/emeritus. The professors emeriti do not have this problem. In almost all universities, among the bonuses that belong to professors emeriti, they are entitled to use IT in an unchanged way after retirement.

During the Covid pandemic1, it became clear in a short period of time how important it is to have ample access to IT for everyday life, both at home and at work. The lack of adequate access to IT services for the retired population will likely grow in the coming years since the IT is increasingly complex. For that reason, there is a need to increase access to IT training and support programs for using IT will be required. If that access is not increased, the gap between the possibilities of those who know how to use IT and those who do not will widen.

In December 2021, we asked the members of the Professors Emeriti Network to assist in collecting the answers to the following questions considering the policy of her/his university:

May I continue to use my university email account after I retire?
May I continue to access software through the university after I retire?
May I continue to utilize IT support for my computer after I retire?

In January 2022, we searched university websites to find links to where the universities publish IT accessibility policy for retired professors. The relevant university location is very often “IT Services Support, Human Resource Department” ( pdf Retired professors entitlements for access to university IT March 2022). Several universities confirmed that the link found is the correct on, some proposed more appropriate link. Colleagues from different universities were also helpful in providing data. To all we are expressing our appreciation of their assistance.

Considering data collected, a paper of a group of authors will be presented to the 2nd Congress of European Association of Professors Emeriti: “The Capital of Knowledge” (Naples, April 28-30, 2022) and published afterwards.

Professors Emeriti Ethical and Legal Aspect Group

In line with the consensus of Professors Emeriti Network, with the objectives of the functioning and action of the European Association of Professors Emeriti, in line with the statements of the European Commission in the GREEN PAPER ON AGEING Fostering solidarity and responsibility between generations (Brussels, 27.1.2021 COM, 50 final), Professors Emeriti Network nominates the Expert Working Group on: Ethical and Legal Aspect from Professors Emeriti and Retired Researchers  Contribution in Public Goodness on 8th of November 2021.

Knowledge market inclusion of retired researchers and professor emeriti in Slovenia depends on individual engagement and possibilities. Often their silent presence is required as the operative staff of research institution and universities are not interested in their cooperation, or the legal aspect of their cooperation is limited. But their engagement in civil society is desired, their products are appreciated – what can be done on more transparency of their contribution to public goodness? The comparative discussion among countries and universities on legal, informal and ethical aspects of professor emeriti research and education activities could give a response.
