Take part in the event "The Bologna Process goes Global: fundamental values of the EHEA beyond 2020". The call for abstracts is now open.

From 24 June 2019 to 25 June 2019

The Alma Mater Studiorum - Università di Bologna, jointly with the Italian Ministry for Education, Universities and Research, under the aegis of the Observatory of the Magna Charta Universitatum, the European University Association (EUA), ESU – European Students Union invite rectors, academics, students, experts and staff to celebrate the Twentieth Anniversary of the Bologna Declaration. The event "The Bologna Process beyond 2020: fundamental values of the EHEA" will be held in Bologna on 24 and 25 June 2019.

The conference is intended as an analytical as well as an agenda-setting contribution to the design of the Bologna Process in the years to come and it aims at identifying important future challenges for universities and their role in society. The proceedings of this meeting will be input for the 2020 EHEA Ministerial Meeting in Rome.

In the event website you can find details and practical information.

As many participants are expected, we kindly ask you to register online and to book your accommodation as soon as possible.

The initiative will include a celebration day - on June 24th in the afternoon - and a working session on June 25th. For the second day the scientific committee has opened a Call for Abstracts on five themes:

  1. Academic and related civic values in changing societies
  2. Student-centered Learning
  3. Providing Leadership for Sustainable Development, the Role of Higher Education
  4. The Social Dimension of Higher Education
  5. Careers and Skills for the Labor Market of the future

You can now submit your abstract.

Your inputs will be crucial to shape the future of EHEA. Don’t miss the opportunity to submit your abstract of approximately 500 words by March 15, 2019. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed. By April 5 2019 the scientific committee will evaluate the proposals received and organize the conference sessions as well as the volume of proceedings. At the same time contributors will get feedback on their proposals and be invited to develop their abstracts. Those whose abstracts the committee agrees to retain, will be asked to speak at one of the sessions and/or contribute to the volume of proceedings.

We hope to involve many scholars and students to discuss the core values of the EHEA and develop a "Vision" for the European Higher Education Area beyond 2020.
