TRENDS 2010: The European Higher Education Area – Achievements and future challenges

11 March 2010, University of Vienna, Austria

University of Vienna,This event provides a unique opportunity to witness the first presentation of the Trends 2010 report that will analyse and draw conclusions on the implementation of the Bologna process reforms in Europe’s universities over the last decade. These developments will, moreover, be set in the context of the wider changes and reforms processes that have marked the last decade in European higher education. Trends 2010 will both look at the considerable achievements of 10 years of higher education reforms and identify the challenges facing universities as the European Higher Education Area is established and all partners in the process seek to define priorities for the next decade.

This sixth report in EUA’s Trends series is the most far reaching in its scope in terms of the range and depth of the data on which it is based.  The report is informed by questionnaire responses from over 800 universities, by feedback received from 28 national rectors’ conferences and by the results of 27 site visits to universities in 16 European countries.  The Trends study also takes account of the findings of the reports prepared for the 2009 Ministerial Conference, including the Stocktaking, Eurydice, and Bologna With Student Eyes reports, as well as other relevant studies by EUA, in drawing its conclusions.

This special event, chaired by Eric Froment, founding President of EUA, will begin with an introductory presentation on the Bologna reforms given by Georg Winckler, Rector of the University of Vienna and former President of EUA. This will be followed by the presentation of the Trends 2010 report. Before opening a discussion with participants, representatives of the universities visited in the preparation of the report will also be asked for their input and question.

The presentations will be followed by a cocktail and buffet reception.


The conference should be of interest to institutional leaders (rectors, vice rectors and heads of administration), higher education researchers and analysts as well as representatives of other bodies involved in educational policy.
