ACA seminar: Bologna Process in the final lap

Tracking what has been a widely anticipated event for the European higher education area, ACA will tackle the Bologna Process London Ministerial outcomes in its third annual ‘European policy seminar’. As the final and most definitive political gathering to date, the London Ministerial meetings will elaborate and focus the Bologna agenda for its remaining years and eventual completion in 2010. The agenda of ACA’s follow-up seminar will be rich and topical, and participants will have an opportunity to hear the opinions of key players on both the political and practical sides of Bologna’s progression, all of whom will have attended the Ministerial meeting first hand. Topics will range from the trends report, the European qualifications framework, the quality assurance register, recognition, social access and Bologna, as well as the elusive ‘external dimension’. A draft programme can be found on the ACA website and registration is now open.

Further ACA events to be noted include the widely anticipated Annual Conference, ‘The Many Faces of Internationalisation’, to be held on 14-15 May in Berlin. ACA has confirmed an all-star cast of speakers and encourages those who not have not signed up yet to reserve their place.

Also on the ACA agenda for May will be a joint colloquium of ACA, KATHO and VLHORA dealing yet again with the theme of internationalisation from the inter-regional to the extra-European level. This colloquium will take place in Kortrijk on 29 May, 2007.
