Lithuanian EU Presidency conference on higher education

Institutional news -

Lithuania has taken the lead of the Council of the EU from 1 July with strong priorities for quality and efficiency in the field education and training (see EUCIS-LLL infonote). The efficient financing of higher education systems and the internationalization of higher education are among the main focuses of this presidency term and a conference on “European higher education in the world” was organised on 5-6 September in Vilnius, Lithuania to discuss the related Commission Communication (see official conclusions). Commissioner Vassiliou (DG EAC) expressed her wish to see “universities […] have comprehensive strategies that go beyond mobility and encompass many other types of academic cooperation such as joint degrees, support for capacity building, joint research projects and distance learning programmes” (see full speech), which the new Erasmus+ funding programme 2014-2020 should support.
