Bologna and Beyond: Opportunities and Obstacles

Åkesson, Eva LU ; Elmgren, Maja and Edström, Kristina (2008) In Chemistry International 30(4). p.13-15
Abstract
The Bologna process is a voluntary joint venture among 46 European countries, which has as its objective the creation of a European Higher Education Area (EHEA) by 2010. The EHEA will cover all of Europe including European Union newcomers Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. Its aim is to allow for degrees and qualifications awarded in one country to be understood and recognized in other countries, thereby facilitating mobility and enhancing employability. The EHEA's overarching goals will be achieved by providing common tools and fostering cooperation in quality assurance.

The common tools in the emerging EHEA, such as the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, Diploma supplement, a three-cycle system, and qualification frameworks, all aim to provide a system that is easy to comprehend for students, institutions, and employers.
