“Spotlight on recognition” focus groups and Spanish workshop in autumn

Event 19.10.2021

EUA, in partnership with CrueHRK and Nuffic, is pleased to announce a focus group taking place online on 19 October, followed by an online workshop on 21 October. Both events are organised in the context of the “Spotlight on recognition” project and will be dedicated to key issues in the field of academic recognition.

The focus group on 19 October will be hosted by EUA and it is open to staff members of higher education institutions operating in the European Higher Education Area, who are involved with designing, managing or implementing the recognition of qualifications. The event will be an opportunity to exchange with peers on central topics in the field of recognition, and to test a self-assessment methodology for institutional staff developed within the “Spotlight on recognition” project. A call for participation in the focus group will be launched in late August.

The online workshop on 21 October, entitled “Academic recognition in the EHEA: challenges and opportunities in the implementation of the Bologna Process commitments in Spain”, is hosted and organised by the Spanish national rectors’ conference, Crue. It is specifically aimed at vice rectors, directors and staff of Spanish universities who are responsible for academic recognition processes. The event aims to offer an opportunity to reflect on the current situation and its impact on the implementation of academic recognition in Spain. It will also be a chance to discuss actions that can lead to improvement. The event will shed light on the role of Spanish universities and their commitment to improving the implementation of academic recognition processes to advance towards automatic recognition as a fundamental part of the implementation of the Bologna Process and of the European Higher Education Area.  Registrations for this event are currently open.

These events will be followed by a second focus group taking place in Berlin, Germany on 29-30 November. The focus group will be hosted by the German national rectors’ conference, HRK, and it is open to staff members of higher education institutions operating in the European Higher Education Area, who are involved with designing, managing or implementing the recognition of qualifications. The event will be an opportunity to exchange with peers on central topics in the field of recognition, and to test a self-assessment methodology for institutional staff developed within the “Spotlight on recognition” project.

A call for participation in the focus group will be launched in late August. Should the sanitary situation prohibit an organisation of the focus group in a physical format, the event will be offered online.

All events are free of charge.
