Work programme of the Bologna Follow-Up Group 2001-2003
EUA Joint Masters Launch Conference
On 20 September 2002, European University Association (EUA) launched its Joint Masters Project at a conference held at the Fondation Universitaire in Brussels.
Developing out of growing interest in European Masters programmes and collaborative teaching and research in the European higher education policy arena, this project aims to identify good practice in existing Joint Masters programmes to establish models for creating and sustaining joint masters programmes in Europe. This EUA project is supported by the European Commission through the Socrates programme.
About the Joint Masters Project
Eleven networks involving over 100 higher education institutions were selected from a pool of 60 applications. The networks vary in size from 4 to 27 institutions, and offer Masters programmes in subjects ranging from International Health and Tropical Medicine, to European Urban Culture, and European Construction Engineering.
Participants and speakers
The launch conference was attended by participants including professor and student representatives from each of the 11 networks, members of the EUA Board and Council, members of the Bologna Follow-Up group, National Secretaries of Rectors' Conferences, government representatives, and secretariat from the European Commission.
