Future Challenges for EHEA, an academic perspective.
On June 24-25, 2019 the City and the University of Bologna will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Bologna Declaration, which in 1999 was signed by education ministers of 29 European countries. This marked the beginning of the so-called Bologna Process, creating the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), which by now encompasses 48 countries.
On this occasion the University of Bologna, in cooperation with Magna Charta Observatory, the European University Association and the European Students’ Union, will host an academic conference, to identify important future challenges for universities and their role in society. 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. The proceedings of this meeting will be input for the 2020 EHEA Ministerial Meeting in Rome.
