The main objective of the project Bologna Hub Peer Support II (2022-2024) is to continue to foster the implementation of the Bologna key commitments and the application of the Bologna tools at higher education institutions throughout the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). This project seeks to build on the achievements of the project Bologna Hub Peer Support (2020-2022).

By featuring a pool of European Bologna Experts (including national Bologna experts, higher education reform experts and other higher education experts) that support institutions in the EHEA with the implementation of Bologna reforms through methods of peer-learning, the project BHPSII takes up this approach. To further pursue “a structured peer support approach based on solidarity, cooperation and mutual learning”, this project will build on the already existing pool of experts which has been set up in the context of the previous project, while similarly enabling the inclusion of additional experts. At least 30 HEI in the entire EHEA will be supported in the implementation of Bologna reforms through methods of peer-learning. Based on the individual needs of higher education institutions, the experts will provide tailor-made counselling during the meetings with those institutions that apply for an expert peer support mission.

The Bologna key commitments:

  • three-cycle system compatible with the QF-EHEA and first and second cycle degrees scaled by ECTS
  • recognition of qualifications in compliance with the Lisbon Recognition Convention
  • quality assurance in compliance with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area


Further issues will be addressed such as:

  • formulation of learning outcomes
  • curriculum development/modularisation
  • innovative approaches to learning and teaching (e.g. digitalisation)
  • mobility and internationalisation


The broad range of topics will be covered by European Bologna Experts with different profiles to adequately address the specific need of each higher education institution.

The BHPSII project is co-funded by Erasmus+ and coordinated by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The consortium also includes the following partners:

  • European Students’ Union (ESU)
  • European University Association (EUA)
  • Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Hellenic Republic (Greece)


In addition, three other organisations will support the project as associated partners:

  • Conference of Spanish University Rectors (Spain)
  • Ministry of Education and Youth (Albania)
  • German Accreditation Council (Akkreditierungsrat)


The project runs from September 2022 until December 2024.
