On 24th October, the EDLab project (“European Policy Experimentation in Higher Education: Piloting a Joint European Degree Label”) team participated in a joint mid-term meeting of the six pilot projects on the European Degree Label and the four pilots on legal entity for European University Alliances.
Andries Verspeeten (Ghent University – Enlight Alliance), Laura Howard (University of Cadiz – SEA-EU Alliance) and Dorothy Kelly (University of Granada – Arqus Alliance) represented the project at the meeting organised in Brussels by the European Commission, participating in the world café format discussions to analyse the current state of the results of the pilots and, especially, to look to the immediate future for both the Label and for the concept of a European Degree.
The discussion analysed the added value of the Label and the European Degree, the suitability and feasibility of the criteria proposed for the award, obstacles existing today, and how quality assurance processes could be modified to facilitate transnational degrees. The meeting provided a useful and fruitful forum for inter-project discussions and to update the community on advances on a policy level regarding the European Degree as a key priority for the Commission in 2024.
