The EDLab project “European policy experimentation in higher education: piloting a joint European degree label” kicks off today in Brussels. The event brings together 30 participants from European University Alliances as well as associate partners and the European Commission in order to establish the next steps to achieve the project’s objectives.
This project is one of the 6 approved actions supported by the European Commission in Europe for the policy experimentation of a European Degree Labely granted with 200.000 euros to analyze and test the specific needs of the implementation of European joint degrees.
The project unites in cooperation 4 European Alliances, ARQUS, whose coordinator, the University of Granada coordinates also on this occasion, ENLIGHT, EUTOPIA and SEA-EU. This meeting has served to make the presentations of a total of 30 participants between universities belonging to the Alliances, Associate Members, as well as the European Commission and the EACEA.
The work and tasks established in the different work packages have been presented, being the package related to “Mapping and screening of existing joint programmes” presented by the SEA-EU Delegation in the UCA formed by the General Coordinator Fidel Echevarría, and the General Director Laura Howard.
This is an example of how the European University Initiative Alliances are cooperating towards the common goals of rethinking education. The coordination and collaboration between the different actors and projects will be essential to achieve better results in the testing and to advance in the implementation of the Joint European Degree in the near future, as envisaged in the European Strategy for Universities.
