The Paris Communiqué, adopted at the Ministerial Conference of the European Higher Education Area in May 2018, states that despite some progress, the implementation of agreed reforms within the Bologna Process remains uneven.

Against this background, the European Commission launched the restricted call “Initiatives to support the implementation of European Higher Education Area (EHEA) reforms EPLUS2020-EHEA09-2019” for proposals in the realm of the Erasmus+ programme.

In this context, the main objective of the project “bologna hub peer support” (bologna hub PS) is to foster the implementation of the Bologna key commitments and the application of the Bologna tools at higher education institutions throughout the EHEA. To this end and based on the idea to establish “a structured peer support approach based on solidarity, cooperation and mutual learning” the project aims at setting up a pool of international higher education experts to support institutions in the entire EHEA with the implementation of Bologna reforms through methods of peer-learning.

Based on the individual needs of higher education institutions, the experts will provide tailor made counselling during on-site visits at those institutions that apply for a Bologna expert peer support mission.

The experts will be expected to participate in:

  • Three workshops with the European Bologna Experts and other relevant experts
  • Two peer counselling-visits

The experts will receive:

  • Full reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs incurred in the realm of the project activities.
  • A daily allowance of EUR 300 per Bologna expert peer support mission.
