One year after the official entry of San Marino as the 49th member country of the European Area for Higher Education (EHEA), the works for the adaptation of San Marino to the provisions of the Bologna Process are in full swing. On Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th November Palazzo Begni is the seat of a series of meetings in which the members of the working group wanted by the Bologna Process for the implementation of the provisions in the Roadmap that will allow days in San Marino and its University as protagonists full access within the established times in the European Higher Education Area. The agenda of the two days of work is marked by an intense program which will be attended by leading personalities from the world of European higher education such as Sjur Bergan, Director of the Department of Education of the Council of Europe, Majia Innola, President of the European Steering Committee for Educational Policies and Practices (CDPPE), Jordi Llombart, Official of the Ministry of Education and Higher Training of Andorra, Maria Kelo, President of ENQA – European Association for Quality Assurance for Higher Education, Melanie Rosenbaum , ENIC President for the Holy See, Daniel Miescher, BFUG member and Head of the Higher Education and Higher Education Division of the Education Department of the Principality of Liechtenstein. The Rector of the University of San Marino, Professor Corrado Petrocelli, Professor Guido Capaldo, university professor, scientific consultant and quality assurance expert for higher education will also attend the meetings. Also present will be the San Marino working group in charge of following the procedures for joining the Bologna Process and the representatives of the students of the San Marino university. In this delicate and demanding phase we will work on the definition of the National Framework of San Marino Qualifications, of the Quality Assurance Agency and of issues related to the Social Dimension. These are some of the founding elements on which the EHEA principles are based and which are aimed at sharing a series of common values; such as freedom of expression, autonomy of institutions, student unions, academic freedom, free mobility of students and staff. The Secretariat of State for Education and Culture, the Education Department and the University of San Marino have for more than two years been engaged in the study and development of policies and in the implementation of the practices necessary to conform San Marino, in order to fully validate them participation in the Bologna Process, European standards. The entry of San Marino into the Bologna Process and the inclusion in the EHEA circuit, makes the University of San Marino a European university in all respects and therefore guarantees its students not only standards of maximum quality and transparency but also recognized degrees that can be used immediately throughout Europe.
