Beyond the Bologna Process
By Marvin Lazerson. My advice to the 47 higher-education ministers headed to Armenia in May to discuss the future of the Bologna Process is: Celebrate Bologna’s extraordinary achievements and then bid it goodbye.
The Bologna Process, formally begun in 1999, is the boldest higher-education reform ever undertaken in Europe and perhaps in the world. Its goal was that countries would voluntarily make their higher-education systems more compatible and coherent across international lines. More...

Le Processus de Bologne
Le processus de Bologne a pour objectif de mettre en place un espace européen de l'enseignement supérieur.
Initié en 1998 par la France, l'Allemagne, l'Italie et le Royaume-Uni lors de la Déclaration de la Sorbonne, le processus s'est développé en 1999 à Bologne autour de 29 pays signataires. Ce sont maintenant 47 pays, 5600 institutions, 31 millions d'étudiants, qui participent à cette aventure européenne.
Destiné à favoriser la mobilité, la lisibilité et l'attractivité de l'espace européen de l'enseignement supérieur (EEES), le processus de Bologne se construit autour de 3 grands principes :
- organiser des études en 3 cycles (Licence – Master – Doctorat) ;
- développer les outils de la reconnaissance académique et professionnelle (ECTS ; supplément au diplôme ; EQF (European Qualifications Framework) ;
- mettre en place une démarche qualité
Par ailleurs, les conférences ministérielles successives de Prague (2001), Berlin (2003), Bergen (2005), Londres (2007), Louvain (2009), Budapest-Vienne (2010), Bucarest (2012) ont précisé les orientations et consolidé les réformes autour de plusieurs thématiques :
- la mobilité
- l'approche centrée sur l'étudiant et les compétences
- la validation des acquis de l'expérience
- la formation tout au long de la vie
- les cadres de qualifications européens et nationaux
- la dimension sociale
- la promotion de la dimension européenne de l'enseignement supérieur
- la promotion de l'attractivité de l'espace européen de l'enseignement supérieur avec les établissements et les étudiants
- le rapprochement avec l'espace européen de la recherche
- la dimension internationale
La prochaine conférence ministérielle aura lieu à Erevan en Arménie en 2015.

The European Parliament to debate on the future of the Bologna process
Today, Thursday 26 February, the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) of the European Parliament debates a draft report on Follow-Up on the Implementation of the Bologna Process, prepared by Krystyna Lybacka, Member of the European Parliament. The report aims at shining light on the most important aspects of the Bologna Process and what members of the parliament believe are the most pressing steps forward towards the Ministerial Conference in Yerevan in 2015 and beyond.
“It is great to see the interest from the Members of the European Parliament on the future of higher education in Europe and how this affects the lives of million of students,“ Elisabeth Gehrke says, ESU chairperson.
With its focus on student-centred learning, the social dimension, recognition and access to mobility the report supports much of what has been ESU’s priorities for the Bologna Process. It also supports strengthening the ties between education and research, specifically mentioning synchronising the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme and the Erasmus+ Programme.
“We would like to see a joint support from all political groups in the European Parliament, as it is essential for the democratically elected representatives of the European citizens to maintain clear priorities for the future of European cooperation in higher education,” Gehrke adds.
