  • 1. Mobility in the EHEA: achievements & outlooks Guy HAUG
  • 2.
    • Point of departure around 1985 (ERASMUS)
      • Very low intra-EU mobility, a wall through the continent
      • Yet, Europe as n°1 destination for world students
    • Situation at turn of Millennium (Bologna, Lisboa)
      • Success story Erasmus: for organised + horizontal mobility
      • Spread of tools (e.g. ECTS), IR offices, networks, joint degrees
      • Towards a broader EU, with new tools (Treaties, Tempus, OMC)
      • Acknowledgement of limitations: cross-learning
      • - heavy administration, little “free” mobility, funding/social issues
      • - still low level of mobility and recognition: cost of incompatibility?
      • - US now as n°1 destination of world students
      •  Mobility issues as a major source of Bologna, Lisbon
    Mobility has come a long way in Europe 3
  • 3.
    • A substantially new picture is emerging
      • Some forms of mobility as an “acquis”; diminishing innovation (?)
      • - ILLP, numbers continue to grow overall: “massification”?
      • - stronger administration, decentralisation: more routine?
      • First impact of structural “convergence” (Bologna):
      • - shorter degree courses, some more “vertical” mobility
      • - growing imbalances in flows and benefits (?); 2-speed Bologna
      • - more, more diverse countries, growing focus on English
      • Impact of globalisation on EU/Europe (Lisbon policies)
      • - rankings, higher competition for talent, stronger “pull” factor
      • - new EU “external programmes”
      • - stress on links with labour market: ILLP, professional mobility
      • - role of mobility in internationalisation/institutional strategies
    Lessons from a decade of Bologna and Lisbon 3
  • 4.
    • Beyond spontaneous demand and administered mobility
      • “ Spontaneous” demand for mobility will no longer be enough
      • Mobility to demonstrate its “value added”; first worrying signals
      • Grants: real mobility costs are beyond the reach of many
      • A “fatigue” with mobility administration?
      • (diminishing innovation, routine processes, recurrent problems)
      • Growing concern in countries and HEIs about loosing talent
      • The costs and complexities of large consortia
      • A growing distance between European and field level of mobility
      • Entrance in a « new age » of mobility: more free, global, diverse
      •  Mobility as a means rather than an aim
    Approaching the limits of the current model 3
  • 5.
    • Diversification of mobility in every respect
    • - intra EU/Europe, neighbourhoods, new world powers
      • - target groups: new priority groups, impact of LLL, free movers
      • - mobility formulas: purpose, timing, duration, programmes
      • - new EU programmes + funding models (students, staff, HEIs)
    • Embedding mobility in institutional strategies
      • - re-orientation of EU programmes + national priorities
      • - using mobility better for own HEI + non-mobile students
      • - comprehensive internationalisation strategies at HEIs
      • - competitive edge of mobility vs. defensive strategies
    Foreseeable future priorities 3
  • 6.
    • Quality assurance for all mobility
    • - for organised flows (inbound and outbound)
    • - for “free” mobility: visibility, attractiveness, trust/recognition
    • - models for quality evaluation of mobility (e.g. IQRP)
    • - internationalisation as an indicator of quality of HEIs ?
    • Empowering students/learners to benefit from EHEA’s diversity
      • - more information and better preparation (languages)
      • - a framework for “free” mobility at EU, national, HEI level
      • (in addition to, not as a substitute to organised mobility)
      • - better recognition of competencies acquired while abroad
    Foreseeable future priorities 3
  • 7.
      • - more centred on mobile students/persons
      • - more free: mobility windows, mobility vouchers?
      • - more diverse beneficiaries: recent graduates, LLL, managers?
      • - more diverse purposes, European values in world context
      • (intra EU, to EU, from EU like in Marie-Curie?)
      • - broader sources of funding for higher/better grants
      • (topping-up the ERASMUS budget from non EU-sources?)
    A new ERASMUS in 2013 ? 3
