Modernisation of Higher Education in Greece
The Bologna Process aims at promoting the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), in order to foster international competitiveness of European higher education in the globalized world economy and knowledge society and to strengthen effective linkages among higher education systems, the contemporary needs of the society and the labor market in Europe making these systems more relevant. What is more, it aims at furthering the attainment of compatibility among national systems under common frameworks that the EHEA defines. This does not mean identical national systems rather than the configuration of terms and conditions that will enable comparability.
Under the Erasmus + programme, and specifically the EACEA Call/20/2014 “Support to the Implementation of EHEA reforms”, the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs in cooperation with the State Scholarship Foundation (IKY) submitted its Proposal “Modernisation of Higher Education in Greece (MOHE) – 391056-EPP-1-2014-1-GR-EPPKA3-BOLOGNA” and was selected for implementation. The Proposal is expected to finalise on 31 October 2016.
MOHE aims at conducting research on the current state of implementation of the EHEA principles in Greece and the promotion of thses principles mainly highlighting the following:
- Ensuring the effective and harmonised use of Recognition tools (Learning Outcomes, ECTS, DS) among all the Hellenic Higher Education Institutions (HEIs)
- The current state of the Hellenic HEIs in facing global challenges in an international environment – the strengthening of cooperation between them, with foreign HEIs and their cooperation with research centers
- The link between study and research programmes with the labour market.
