New EU policy document on “European Higher Education in the World”

VU International News and Reviews No. 10 July 15 2013

July 2013

On July 11th, the European Commission published its “Communication” on “European Higher Education in the World”. Faced with increasing completion from i.a. Asia and Latin America, European universities need to overhaul the way in which they operate internationally, but also in providing their domestic graduates with the skills for an international labour market.  

Key priorities according the Communication are 1) Mobility and the recognition which this requires, 2) Internationalisation at home, including digital learning, and 3) Strategic cooperation and partnership, including capacity building.
