Edition 91 - November 2008

Registrations are open for "What’s New in Brussels 2009"

Since the launch of the seminar series in 2004, the first European Policy Seminar each year provides an overview of recent developments in European higher education policy. Unless you have, in the meantime, acquired psychic qualities to learn about these developments, you are warmly invited to join us in Brussels on Friday, 30 January 2009. This edition of What’s New in Brussels also marks ACA’s 20th European Policy Seminar, all the more reason not to miss this special event.

What’s New in Brussels 2009 will present the latest information on, and analysis of, the Erasmus Mundus II Programme, other EU higher education schemes with non-European countries, as well as the plans for the Bologna Process after 2010 and the European Commission’s ambitions for global cooperation in science and technology. Other issues on the agenda are the French EU Presidency’s plans for a new approach to global higher education rankings, and a case study of global outreach in the form of the Erasmus Mundus Alumni Association. ACA is proud to have once again been able to win high-level experts as presenters, such as Vito Borelli, Sigi Gruber, and Peter van der Hijden from the European Commission and DAAD’s Angelika Sachsenröder. ACA Director Bernd Wächter will chair the event.

Those of you that are no newcomers know that this event is extremely popular. The limited number of seats fill up quickly, so don’t forget to register.
