BFUG Partners

Next to Members, the Bologna Process also involves Consultative Members and BFUG partners.

The Bologna Follow-up Group at its meeting in Mondorf on 1-2 March 2005 established the category of “BFUG partner” for organisations that wish to be associated with the Bologna Process/the BFUG but do not meet the more demanding criteria for consultative membership.

Further information is available on the How to apply for becoming a member page.
