This international conference will be hosted by the University of Bucharest, 26-27 May 2022. By alternating keynote speeches, panel discussions and workshops, the programme of the Conference is designed to provide answers and create a baseline for new philosophical and structural approaches as ways to innovate teaching, learning, recognition, and internationalisation in European higher education.

Expected outcomes: conference statements “Towards the European Degree

  • What are the main obstacles encountered in the development of new joint programmes and which solutions could be proposed so far?
  • How to enhance the European Approach with a view to match the University Alliances’ needs? Should the minimum common requirements be upgraded? How to include research-based training?
  • How to link micro-credentials to the traditional higher education cycles (BA, MA, PhD)?
  • How to valorise, from now on, the benefit for students of joint curricula offered by the University Alliances? Would it be feasible to issue a single standard document or a label? How to authenticate that such joint training was officially provided by a University Alliance? (e.g., through digital means?)
