The European Commission has published a new Communication on “Strengthening European Identity through Education and Culture” which outlines its vision of a European Education Area for 2025. The goal is to create a “Europe in which learning, studying and doing research would not be hampered by borders”. While the EU cannot legislate on educational matters, the ambitions are high. Among other things, there is a proposal to remove obstacles to recognition also for primary and secondary level education, expand mobility beyond higher education, and create world-class networks of European universities.
