“Transformations of higher education
and research policies, systems and institutions in European countries”
The Second Euredocs conference in Bergen will focus
on the Transformations of higher education and research policies,
systems and institutions in European countries. The conference
venue and dates emphazise the importance of the Bologna process
in the European higher education area. Thus it follows up the first
Eurodocs conference in Paris by keeping a focus on the Bologna process,
but slightly externding the range of topics by explicitly including
higher education and research policies and systems in addition to
the institutions through which they are carried out.
Three main dimensions will be explored during this
- the first deals with national and supranational policies aiming
at national and supranational integration of higher education
and research activities and institutions
- the second deals with the introduction of management and assessment
tools within higher education and research institutions
- the third dimension to be explored deals with the concrete effects
of the Bologna process on higher education and research institutions
The conference will welcome a limited number of contributors (12
to 15) in order to allow and favour relationships and debates among
participants sharing common interests and knowledge on a common
The conference will be organised in four sessions. In each session
no more than four papers will be presented and discussed (45mns
to one hour for each paper).
Selected papers should be available before May 2nd
Participants will be asked to read the papers before arrival.
For this reason, contributors will have only 15mns to present their
paper. For each paper, a discussant (one of the present contributors)
will be chosen and have a further 15mns of time. General discussion
We thus expect each contributor to attend the whole conference.
Each session will be chaired by a senior researcher (list
of names & papers).
