On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and in cooperation with the DAAD Information Centre Baku the DAAD is organising a Bologna Cooperation Forum including a Conference and a Networking Meeting for Higher Education Cooperation on the 25th and 26th of September 2019.

1st Conference Day

Bologna-Conference (plenary) on 25th September

Azerbaijan joined the European Higher Education area in 2005 and is increasingly seeking to make progress on the implementation of Bologna reforms, the internationalization of its higher education system and the alignment with European standards. Therefore, an international conference will be held to support and encourage the reform efforts. The conference will address key elements of the European higher education reform, including quality assurance, transparency instruments such as ECTS / Diploma Supplement but also the topic of recognition of qualifications.

2nd Conference Day

European-Azerbaijan Networking Meeting on 26th September

The Networking Meeting at local universities will provide participants with the opportunity to establish cooperation partnerships with Azerbaijani & European colleagues.

Addressed are representatives from all academic disciplines as well as from International Offices and other interested higher education representatives.

As the number of participants is limited, available slots are allocated on a 'first come first serve' basis but also taking to account the regional balance. If selected, the DAAD will provide catering and accommodation (maximum 3 nights) as well as local transfer as part of the 2-day event. Additionally, the travel expenses will be supported with a lump sum of 625 Euro.
