Details evenement

On March 27th, the European Commission took a significant stride forward by unveiling a comprehensive blueprint for the European degree. This blueprint sets forth the framework and guidelines for the implementation of a European degree, marking a pivotal moment for European higher education institutions and students alike.

Over the past year, the FOCI project, a dynamic partnership between YUFE, ECIU, and EPICUR Alliances, has been diligently working to pilot and assess this groundbreaking concept. Now, as the project nears its culmination, we are thrilled to extend a warm invitation to join us for the final webinar. During this event, we will delve into the intricacies of the European degree blueprint and present the key findings and outcomes of the FOCI project.

This webinar offers a unique opportunity to gain insight into the concept of a European degree and to understand its implications for the future of higher education in Europe. We encourage all stakeholders, including educators, policymakers, and students, to register and participate in this important discussion.
