What’s New in Brussels 2010

If you want to be among the first to get the latest news on European higher education policy developments, join us on 22 January 2010 for our by now traditional event, held as always in lovely Brussels.

The What’s New in Brussels 2010 European Policy Seminar will present the latest information on and analysis of the EU programmes with non-European countries, while trying to "sneak a peak" at the planning of the next generation of EU programmes, where the consultation of stakeholders seems to play an incremental role. Other issues on the agenda are the plans and expected evolutions of the Bologna and Lisbon processes after the 2010 milestone, and the current involvement of the European Investment Bank (EIB) in supporting member states’ student loans schemes as well as future perspectives. Last but not least, the seminar will try to shed some light on the rationales behind the establishment and functioning of the EIT and EQAR, two entities expected to foster innovation and respectively quality of higher education in a European context.

Once again, ACA brings together high-calibre presenters and experts, such as Christian Tauch, Filip Van Depoele, Lucia Recalde Langarica and Peter van der Hijden, from the European Commission, Luisa Ferreira from the European Investment Bank (EIB), EUA’s Andrée Sursock and Michael Gaebel, EURYDICE’s David Crosier and last, but certainly not least, Cornelia Racké from the Bologna Secretariat. The event will be chaired by ACA Policy Officer Irina Lungu.

If you have been to our “What’s New in Brussels” seminar in the past, you know how popular an event this is, so do not miss your chance and register soon!
