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.

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.
