The BFUG meeting took place in Nicosia, on 28-29 August 2012. The main focus of the meeting was the adoption of 2012-2015 work plan with its new streamlined structure, towards increasing transparency, visibility and effectiveness of the process, as well as ensuring coherence between the priority areas outlined in the Bucharest Communique. The meeting took place under the Co-chairmanship of Cyprus and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The meeting started with the welcome speech of the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Cyprus, Dr. George Demosthenous, who stressed the high importance of the Bologna Process for higher education and, particularly, in achieving quality education for all.

The new Head of the Bologna Follow-Up Group Secretariat Gayane Harutyunyan thanked the Chairs and the former Romanian Secretariat for the smooth and efficient handover that took place on June 28, 2012 in Yerevan.  On this occasion the new Secretariat team was presented to the BFUG.

Taking into account the focus given by the EHEA ministers through the Bucharest Communique, the 2012-2015 work plan was adopted with its four main working groups and their sub-structures to respond to both a need for continuity and to clear mandate for deepening and renewing the efforts for the proper and full implementation of the Bologna Process.
