The BWSE FOR2030 (Bologna with Stakeholders Eyes for an Innovative, Inclusive and Interconnected EHEA by 2030) project consortium, in which ENQA is a partner, has opened a call for applications to join the second of a series of three peer-learning activities (PLAs). The second on-site PLA, entitled “Towards an innovative EHEA by 2030”, will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, on 20-21 April 2023, hosted by the Croatian Ministry of Education and Science. The call for applications is open until 30 March.
During the 2020 Rome Ministerial Conference, ministers for higher education expressed their commitment to building an inclusive, innovative and interconnected European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that underpins a sustainable, cohesive and peaceful Europe, by 2030. As such, the second peer-learning activity of this Erasmus+ co-funded project, on “Towards an innovative EHEA by 2030”, aims to support the implementation of this vision by inviting participants to:
• engage in mutual learning and practice exchange;
• identify potential solutions to existing challenges;
• contribute to the formulation of tangible recommendations to support the effectiveness of the Bologna Process in the long term.
The event is open to representatives of relevant ministries (i.e. covering higher education), higher education institutions, non-governmental organisations, students and other higher education stakeholders such as policy-makers and higher education experts from EHEA countries. A maximum of 18 participants will be selected through a call for applications, which is open until 30 March.
Applications will primarily be evaluated based on the prospective participant’s level of experience with the event theme. The organisers will also seek to ensure balance in terms of gender, as well as geographical and organisational profile among the selected participants.
For the convenience of potential applicants, a summary of the application form is available; however, only applications received through the online form will be considered.
This event is free of charge. A maximum of four participants who are higher education students and selected through the call for applications will have their travel and accommodation costs reimbursed through the project. All other participants are required to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
Further information about the topic of the peer-learning activity, the preliminary programme and practical information are available on the event page. Applicants are advised to carefully read this information before submitting their application.
