A. Ashotyan will Speak at “Future of Higher Education” International Conference

Following the success of the “Future of Higher Education – Bologna Process Researchers’ Conference” (FOHE – BPRC), organized on 17 – 19 October 2011 by the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI), with the support of the European University Association (EUA) and the Romanian National Committee for UNESCO, a second edition will take place on 24 – 26 November 2014 in Bucharest, Romania.
The delegation led by Minister of Education and Science of RA Armen Ashotyan will attend the conference upon the invitation of Romanian Minister of National Education.

Armenia is participating in this conference as a co-organizer. A series of organizational issues relating to the upcoming Bologna Ministerial conference to be held in Yerevan in 2015 will be discussed during the meeting.

During the conference RA Minister Armen Ashotyan will make a speech on the reforms referring the educational system of our country within the context of Bologna process and the future of European Higher Educational Area.

With the second edition of the Conference, the organizers wish to continue this initiative, turning it into a landmark for European and international higher education research and policy making. The focus of the conference will include both the progress on the consolidation of the EHEA towards the increasingly close 2020 political deadline, as well as the broader regional and international developments that shape national higher education and research policies. In this vein, the event aims to bring together researchers on higher education, as well as leading academics and policy makers. Selected articles will be published in a peer-reviewed research volume and the message coming from the conference will be conveyed to the 47 EHEA ministers meeting in Yerevan in May 2015.
