  • Factors for analysing student participation
    The role of students as a transformation agent of university education has been widely recognised in the communiqués and declarations that have defined the development of the European Higher Education Area over the past ten years. In the same vein, but at the level of Catalonia, the institutions and authorities involved in university education (universities, policy makers, quality assurance agencies) have progressively introduced changes and carried out actions that have seen progress made in this regard, with the student body taking a more active part in different levels of action and decision-making.

  • FLLLEX Project: The international review of university policies for lifelong learning
    At the European level, coordinated education policies have become more important since the adoption of the Lisbon Strategy, which defined the framework for promoting economic growth and employment in the European Union, in 2000. The quality of the different levels of education, from pre-school to university, has been recognised as being fundamental for the objectives of this strategy to be achieved. In a world that is rapidly changing, however, lifelong learning (LL) has now become a priority, if not a key element in employment and economic development, at the same time that it clearly improves the position of people and enables them to fully participate in present-day society and that of the future.
