Strategy

The Bologna Process is a mechanism promoting intergovernmental cooperation between 48 European countries in the field of higher education.
European Higher Education Area (EHEA) is a unique international collaboration on higher education and the result of the political will of 48 countries with different political, cultural and academic traditions, which, step by step during the last twenty years, built an area implementing a common set of commitments: structural reforms and shared tools.
Mobility and cooperation.
European Ministers have agreed to double the proportion of students in higher education completing a study or training period abroad to 20% by 2020. Support for mobility remains a core focus of the Erasmus+ programme.
Effective and efficient higher education.
The effectiveness and efficiency of higher education systems relate, in part, to the availability of funding and the promotion of a culture of quality.
Inclusive and connected higher education.
Higher education must play its part in tackling Europe’s social and democratic challenges. This means ensuring that higher education is inclusive and that its institutions are well connected to their communities.
Relevant and high-quality higher education.
Relevant and high-quality higher education equips students with the knowledge and transferable core skills required to succeed after graduation.
Higher education for migrants and refugees.
The EU supports the integration of migrants and refugees into higher education and research through a range of initiatives and funding projects in this field.

The Quantum Refrigerator

A completely new cooling concept has been invented at TU Wien (Vienna): Computer simulations show how quantum fields could be used to break low-temperature records. At first glance, heat and cold do not have much to do with quantum physics. A single atom is neither hot nor cold. Temperature can traditionally only be defined for […]

Discover community volunteering opportunities in Europe through the European Solidarity Corps, international student organisations and your host university. As an international student, you may arrive in a new country which is completely unknown to you. It takes time to get to know your new environment, make friends and to find your way around.  As time passes, you […]

FAU involved in DFG research group focusing on plasma rays from black holes.

A new DFG research group led by Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) is investigating ultra-high energy jets. Two astrophysicists from FAU are also involved. The research group will be funded with a total of 3.6 million euros over the next four years. Black holes can be found in the centre of nearly all galaxies. They have an […]

Do I Buy or Not?

Würzburg psychologists have studied the phenomenon of impulse buying behaviour. People who focus on enjoyment act differently than people who play it safe.The shopping trolley often contains not only what is needed, but also things that are bought spontaneously. Psychologists have investigated how impulse purchases come about. You have probably often said to yourself: “This […]

Four Hungarian Universities Open Joint Representation in Kenya

Dr. László Palkovics, Minister of Innovation and Technology, and Dr. Attila Miseta, Rector of the University of Pécs both emphasized the importance of education and research […]

Toward a Climate Neutral University

The latest Environmental Report (Umweltbericht) of the University of Freiburg has just been published. The report includes data for its greenhouse gas emissions from energy use, waste, water, the fleet of vehicles, business travel, as well as procurement – from printing paper and laboratory equipment, to complete computer hardware solutions. The greenhouse gas emissions calculated […]

York researchers take part in new monitoring campaign in a bid to find out more about air pollution

Scientists from the University of York are taking part in a national research project to measure air quality across the UK, which aims to provide new insight into the formation of air pollution and its impact on people. Launched in the build up to Clean Air Day, (Thursday 17th June)  the six-week long study is […]

Young Manager School Regional Project Started

The opening of the new cohort of the Young Manager School took place on June 2 in Russia is My History Park.

Studies by Samara scientists will increase the accuracy of forecasting carcinogenic emissions from aircraft engines

Studies by scholars of Samara National Research University will help create more environmentally friendly aircraft engines with lower levels of carcinogenic emissions into the atmosphere.  Active development of air transport leads to constant pollution of the atmosphere with various chemicals – carbon oxides, sulfur, nitrogen, as well as hydrocarbons. Emissions from aircraft engines threaten human […]

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
