Proposal tabled by the European Commission on 18 January 2022 for a Council Recommendation concerning higher education cooperation. This is a text with EEA relevance.
The proposed Council Recommendation aims to enable higher education institutions across the European Union (EU) to engage in closer and deeper cooperation, to facilitate the implementation of joint transnational education programmes and activities, pooling capacity and resources, or awarding joint degrees. It is an invitation to EU Member States to take action and create appropriate conditions at national level for enabling such closer and sustainable transnational cooperation, more effective implementation of joint educational and research activities and the European Higher Education Area (Bologna) tools.
It also aims to facilitate the flow of knowledge and to build a stronger link between education, research and innovative industrial communities. The objective is notably to support the provision of high-quality life-long learning opportunities for everyone with a focus on the most needed skills and competences to face today's economic and societal demands.
The Communication was published by the European Commission on 18 January 2022 as part of a Higher Education Package, which also includes a Communication setting out a European strategy for universities.
