The European Commission has set out today out its vision for how to create a European Education Area by 2025.

Amongst the proposals towards a European Area of Education are:

– The mutual recognition of diplomas: by initiating a new ‘Sorbonne process’, building on the “Bologna process”, to prepare the ground for the mutual recognition of higher education and school leaving diplomas;

– Greater cooperation on curricula development: by making recommendations to ensure education systems impart all the knowledge, skills and competences that are deemed essential in today’s world;

– Mainstreaming innovation and digital skills in education: by promoting innovative and digital training and preparing a new Digital Education Action Plan;

The EU Leaders’ meeting on 17 November 2017 in Gothenburg will further discuss the future of education.
