Bologna with Stakeholders Eyes for an Innovative, Inclusive and Interconnected EHEA by 2030 (BWSE FOR2030)


Building on the work of the first round of the project Bologna With Stakeholders’ Eyes for a Stronger Future of the Bologna Process (BWSE FORward), the follow-up project BWSE FOR2030 aims to continue supporting the implementation of reforms in the European Higher Education Area.

Aims and activities

The BWSE FOR2030 aims to continue supporting the implementation of reforms in the European Higher Education Area. It will do so through the following activities:

  • Three rounds of peer-learning activities (PLAs) that will address the themes typically covered by the Bologna with Student Eyes publication, with a strong focus on mutual learning and practice exchange;
    1. PLA1 “Towards an inclusive EHEA by 2030”, 16-17 February 2023, The Hague
    2. PLA2 “Towards an innovative EHEA by 2030”, 20-21 April 2023, Zagreb
    3. PLA3 “Towards an interconnected EHEA by 2030”, June 2023, online
  • Focus groups in combination with EHEA stakeholder consultations;
  • A survey inviting higher education institutions and public authorities to reflect on their institutional/national approach to implementing the Bologna reforms in all its areas;
  • A set of policy recommendations developed ahead of the Tirana Ministerial Conference in 2024.

ENQA’s role

ENQA’s role will be specifically to monitor and report on the quality and impact of the project activities, as well as to support the organisation of peer learning activities, focus groups, policy recommendations and communication activities of the project.
