    The Belgian region of Flanders has now been included in EUA’s interactive University Autonomy Online Tool, which allows users to view and compare comprehensive data on university autonomy in 29 European higher education systems (the project covers 29 systems in 27 countries, including three German federal states and the Belgian region of Flanders). The tool, which was launched in February 2012, facilitates the benchmarking of national policies, raises awareness among universities, and provides researchers with a comprehensive set of data for further studies.

    EUA has developed a short online survey to gather the views of readers of its newsletter.

    EUA is currently finalising a new report: Tracking Learners’ and Graduates’ Progression Paths. The result of a two-year study, the first of its kind, it examines the different initiatives and systems that are used in Europe to track university students during their studies and after graduation into the workplace.

    Over the summer, the European Commission has announced that 12 new members have been appointed to the Governing Board of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Meanwhile, it has published the general call for proposals (2013) for participation in the Lifelong Learning Programme and has released the results of the latest EU Survey on R&D Investment Business Trends.

    EUA has this week signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the European Commission, which recognises the key role of universities in delivering a strong European Research Area (ERA). This Memorandum was signed and presented on 17 July on the occasion of the launch of the European Commission’s new Communication on a ‘Reinforced European Research Area Partnership for Excellence and Growth’, which outlines the EC strategy with regard to completing the ERA.

    Thirty presidents, rectors, and vice-chancellors from universities in Canada, Europe and the United States met in Salzburg, Austria, from 4 to 7 July 2012 to discuss how higher education institutions' ‘internationalisation strategies’ are changing in the context of globalisation, the emergence of new higher education models in other parts of the world and the current economic crisis.
