Brussels in brief: News from the European Commission

17 December 2008

On 16 December 2008 the European Commission presented its strategic vision for co-operation between EU Member States on the reform of their education and training systems.

In the strategy, there are joint targets to measure the progress made by education and training systems at European level. They include the reading literacy of 15 year-olds, early school leavers, and the participation of adults in lifelong learning. The Commission proposes to review these benchmarks and to consider new benchmarks in more key areas such as tertiary education attainment, employability and student mobility.

Meanwhile, following the story in the last EUA newsletter, the European Commission has now published a call for tenders, inviting bidders to design and test a new multi-dimensional university ranking system with global outreach. More information is available on the Commission website.
