The European Commission has issued a tender for a study to examine the impact of the national teams of Bologna experts on the implementation of the Bologna Process. The European Commission collaborates with Member States and higher education stakeholders to support the implementation of the modernisation agenda through what is called the Open Method of Coordination (involving dialogue among clusters of policy makers and experts, peer-learning activities, indicators, benchmarks, reports and analyses). One of the most visible initiatives under this method is support for the National Teams of Bologna Experts. The Commission launched the Bologna Experts initiative in 2004, with a specific purpose to support the promotion of the Bologna Process at institutional level, by providing a pool of expertise in certain areas to promote and enhance progress toward higher education reform in the EU/EEA countries and Turkey. The core tasks of the Bologna Experts are defined as follows: give and receive training in their field of expertise to higher education institutions (HEI) staff, advise HEI on reform strategies, assist HEI in policymaking, be involved in promotion activities for the Erasmus programme and assist HEI in applying for the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and Diploma Supplement labels. The overall objectives of the study are to: - assess the impact of the National Teams of Bologna Experts on the implementation of the Bologna Process, - provide a cost/benefit analysis of the Bologna Experts exercise, - give recommendations regarding the future of this exercise post-2013.For further information, please contact: European Commission Directorate-General for Education and Culture Unit Higher Education - 'Erasmus' attention: Filip Van Depoele MADO 11/96 1049 Brussels Belgium E-mail: eac-unite-C1@ec.europa.eu To see the full details of the call, please consult: OJ No S152 of 7 August 2010
