On 27 March, 2024, the European Commission published a blueprint for a European degree, outlining the next steps towards the implementation of this concept and making the possibility to award and receive a European degree a reality for European higher education institution and students.

FOCI blueprint - in association with YUFE

The FOCI project, the partnership of YUFE, ECIU and EPICUR Alliances, has been working on piloting and testing this concept for the past year: its implications for the regulatory frameworks, criteria for awarding a European degree, and a future policy framework necessary to sustain it. As the project nears its completion, we invite you to join us for this final webinar during which the FOCI blueprint for a European degree will be elaborated on and the main project outcomes will be presented.

Erasmus+ blueprint

Monday, 29 April 2024  |  09:00 - 17:00 CET

This is your chance to hear from the Erasmus+ pilot projects that have spearheaded efforts in the delivery of joint degree programmes and the establishment of a possible European legal status for alliances of higher education institutions. Their work was the basis of the Commission’s work on the blueprint for a European degree.

Held at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (part of the SMARTT pilot project), this event is co-organised by all Erasmus+ pilot projects and the European Commission. It will feature representatives from the pioneering Erasmus+ pilot projects, Member States, the wider higher education sector, and European Commission. They will share their insights and experiences in bringing these initiatives to life.

You can find the full programme here.
