|French term or phrase: politique de relève|
|I have a contract regarding academic exchange programmes. |
The contract states: "Chaque université peut désigner un enseignant dans le but d’enseigner et de faire de la recherche dans l’autre université, si possible sur une base de réciprocité...priorité est donnée aux jeunes enseignants, pour favoriser une **politique de relève**"
I think this simply means something like 'to ensure an equitable exchange' or 'to ensure reciprocal staff relief'...
Does anyone know if there is an equivalent phrase used in EN?
|English translation:policy of renewal|
This phrase is a guess, but I think it is in the right direction meaning-wise. From instances of "politique de releve" on the internet in relation to university departments, this is about ensuring the maintenance of "fresh blood" and ideas in university departments, both through encouraging exchanges of staff with other universities and/or encouraging young researchers, or, in this case, both.
The sense of "relève" here is more the sense of "changing of the guard" than "relief", and "politique" is just policy.
"Regeneration policy" is another thought, but I don't know whether either expression is really used in anglo universities. It may simply be a French expression - in my previous experience in universities this was certainly talked about as an idea but I don't recall it being referred to as a specific principle or policy.
