Arqus participates today in the BWSE FORward Final Conference with an intervention on mobility and internationalization
Arqus participates today in the BWSE FORward Final Conference (Bologna With Stakeholders’ Eyes For a Future of the Bologna Process) that is taking place in Paris.
The BWSE FORward project is an Erasmus+ Programme funded initiative aiming to support the implementation of European Higher Education Area (EHEA) reforms. The coordinator of the project is the European Students’ Union (ESU). The main objective of the project is to update the latest version of Bologna with Students’ Eyes publication (2020). As the project draws to an end, ESU in partnership with the European Association for Quality Assurance (ENQA), the European University Association (EUA), the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE), the Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA), the Ministry of Science and Education of Croatia (MSE), the Ministry of Education and Science of Armenia (MoES) and, as Associates, the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR), is hosting the Final Conference of the BWSE FORward project on 25th May in Paris. The Conference will discuss the results of the above publication and the outcomes of the peer-learning activities. Participants will also identify the topics that require particular attention in the future. The event is open to anyone who wishes to participate.
As part of the second Thematic Workshop, on Mobility and Internationalization: What will it take to raise the 20% target?, which will be structured in 3 breakout groups, Fernando Galán, Consortium Manager of the Alliance, will talk about “Innovation in Internationalization and Mobility through the European University Alliances”. Together with the representative of the E³UDRES² Alliance, they will discuss the roles that the European University Alliances can play in promoting mobility, be it traditional degree mobility or others.
The other 2 groups will focus on “The BFUG and EU: Europe’s powerhouses of Internationalization and Mobility” and “The Ins and Outs for Transcontinental Mobility”.
It is expected that around 130 people will participate in this Conference. The main audience will be student representatives (coming from the student unions umbrellaed under ESU and the Steering Committee of the Global Student Forum) and around 30 stakeholders mixed from the E4 group, HEIs, QA-ENIC Naric, Ministry-BFUG, researchers and organisations who have been collaborating with the BWSE FORward project during its execution.
