Fundamental Academic Values in the EHEA – Strengthening Cooperation through Fundamental Academic Values?

dadaluxe - Mathias Suess / DAAD

The conference within the framework of the DAAD project bologna hub focussed on the increasing importance of Fundamental Academic Values in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the need for action and the potential contribution to these values by the Bologna Follow-Up Group (BFUG) and higher education institutions (HEI).


The conference aimed at enriching the ongoing discussion on Fundamental Academic Values, bringing together professionals from the policy level as well as experts and HEI administrators, sensitising all actors to the topic and building a peer support network.

In addition, the framework to further the monitoring and implementation of the Fundamental Academic Values of the EHEA in the higher education systems of its members, which will be developed by the BFUG Working Group on Fundamental Values, was discussed. The system should foster self-reflection, constructive dialogue and learning across national authorities, HEI and organisations, while also making it possible to assess the degree to which these Fundamental Academic Values are honoured and implemented in the EHEA.

Furthermore, an exchange on the role of Fundamental Academic Values in international cooperation and international mobility, experiences with previous activities, obstacles, potential for the future, the impact of the Corona crisis and new opportunities for cooperation from the perspective of HEI has been enabled.
