The European Commission has just launched a public consultation on the modernisation of higher education in Europe. Contribute with your views by filling in a short online questionnaire.
Europe 2020 - the EU's strategic agenda for growth - stresses the vital role of the European higher education sector in developing human capital and driving research and innovation in the knowledge economy. As part of its efforts to help develop higher education in Europe, the European Commission plans to adopt a new Communication on the modernisation of higher education in the third quarter of 2011. This will provide strategic direction for the development of European higher education in the next ten years, including in the areas of education, research and innovation. This new Communication will review progress towards the objectives set out in the 2006 Communication on modernisation higher education and propose action to respond to the challenges of the new decade.
To help prepare the new Communication, the European Commission is currently undertaking a wide-ranging consultation with stakeholders in European higher education. As part of this, we would like to invite you to complete a short online questionnaire, asking for your views on priorities for higher education, including its research and innovation dimensions, in the period up to 2020.
The questionnaire will take around 10 minutes to complete. The consultation will be open until 15 March 2011. You can complete it in English, French or German.
