The Advisory Group on EHEA international cooperation aims to enhance the international dimension of the EHEA, carrying out a strategic cooperation with non-EHEA members and, as well, define the scope of the next Bologna Policy Forum in connection with the Ministerial conference in 2018.

The Yerevan Communiqué states that

the EHEA has a key role to play in addressing these challenges and maximizing these opportunities through European collaboration and exchange, by pursuing common goals and in dialogue with partners around the globe. We must renew our original vision and consolidate the EHEA structure.

During the next three years and in this context, the advisory group will have

  • to identify the weaknesses and the strength of the four previous Bologna policy Forums and draw a sustainable approach for the Bologna policy forum in general;
  • to identify the different regions and specific issues to cooperate with and to work out an agenda;
  • to develop policy dialogues with the different regions of the world identified;
  • to organise brainstorming and relevant proactive actions to define a vision and action plan for the next Bologna policy forum in 2018;
  • to organise events or participate at relevant events proposed by other stakeholders in and outside the EHEA.
