Bologna Process Stocktaking London 2007, (440 KB, 88 pages)
Report from a working group appointed by the Bologna Follow-up Group to the Ministerial Conference in London, May 2007.
"There are three main findings from the 2007 stocktaking:
1. There has been good progress in the Bologna Process since Bergen.
2. The outlook for achieving the goals of the Bologna Process by 2010 is good, but there are still some challenges to be faced.
3. Stocktaking works well as an integral part of the Bologna Process strategy." (Report itself)
According to EurActiv .com: "While the report found that "there has been good progress on specific action lines and indicators", it reminds that is not enough to look at these in isolation because all aspects of the Bologna Process are interdependent. In particular, the report urges all participating countries to use learning outcomes as a basis for their national qualifications frameworks and systems for credit transfer and accumulation.
The ministers issued a Communiqué reviewing progress on the different Bologna process action lines (mobility; degree structure; recognition of qualifications; qualifications frameworks; lifelong learning; quality assurance; doctoral studies; social dimension; EHEA in a global context) and setting priorities for 2008-2009."
