Networks and Networking in European Higher Education

Hannover, 1-2 September 2003

In cooperation with the University of Hannover and
supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research

The conference took place 1-2 September 2003 at the University of Hanover, Germany. With 180 participants - academics and practitioners of internationalisation - and several high calibre speakers the event turned out a real success. The ACA Secretariat received a lot of positive feedback from participants.

The results of the two-day conference were formulated into a ‘Hanover statement’, which underlines the specific and important role that the Networks have had, and will continue to have, in reaching the aims of the Bologna Process, to which the participants confirmed their full support. The Hanover statement was brought to the attention of the Berlin ministerial meeting of 18-19 September 2003, and thus the results of the conference fed directly into the next stages of the Bologna Process.
