How to enhance European higher education and provide better education to its increasing and more diverse studentship? What are the European and global trends that are transforming learning and teaching? What are the supporting frameworks and conditions European universities require in order to respond?
EUA believes in the added value of addressing these and other issues in a European context. Therefore it actively supports the development of the European Higher Education Area, through the Bologna Process, and in dialogue with the European Union and its policies and programmes. In close collaboration with its members in 48 European countries and European and international partners, it contributes to policy development and facilitates spread of institutional good practice.
This comprises a wider range of issues which are of central importance for the EHEA and its universities, such as quality assurance, mobility, lifelong learning, student tracking and employability, recognition, also of professional qualifications, which falls into the competences of the EU and international trade agreements.
