Eurydice report: information gaps holding back higher education modernisation
In its study published on 22 May “Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: access, retention and employability”, Eurydice shows that European countries collect too little data in the higher education field but that they also do not use them, hindering the sector’s modernization regarding Europe 2020 objectives (access, retention and employability). For instance, only eight countries decided to set targets in the area of access (inclusion of disadvantaged students) but do not properly analyse the information collected to fulfill their goals.
