European higher education in the world | European Commission's Communication

European higher education in the world | European Commission's Communication | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

The international higher education arena in Europe has waited for this moment for quite some time now – the International Communication from the European Commission (EC)  entitled “European higher education in the world”.


Addressed to both the member state governments and higher education institutions, the Communication clearly states what the Commission expects from both parties and provides tools and ammunition for European higher eduction institutions to put pressure on their own governments.

 

The document recognises that higher education is at the heart of the EU2020 strategy and plays a crucial role in Europe’s ambition to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy.


The whole Communication is cohesively linked with the more recent policy documents emphasising the need for societal development, innovation, strengthening the European position in the global arena, connecting with the rest of the world, capacity building, attracting talent etc.


The Communication emphasises the same ultimate goals with new means of achieving these goals, and outlines specific areas of support from the Commission to ensure we are all heading in the right direction.
