ACA Annual Conference 2008

Beyond 2010: European Higher Education in the Next Decade.

Tallinn, 15-17 June 2008

Theme

What will happen in European higher education after the magic year 2010? Will the Bologna Process continue, will the Lisbon Strategy remain the centerpiece of EU education, research and innovation policies? Or will new priorities emerge, and which? This was the overall theme of 2008’s ACA Annual Conference.  More in detail, the international conference addressed the future of academic mobility in the next decade, it looked into the ways of financing internationalisation and higher education as a whole, it probed the issue of access, inclusive of alternative learning paths and transnational education, and it seeked to explore future language policies of higher education institutions.

The conference drew an audience of 250 participants – composed of policymakers and practitioners alike, from Europe and elsewhere in the world.
