    The Bologna Process Implementation Report

    How has the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) progressed since the Yerevan Conference
    in 2015? The latest report "The European Higher Education Area in 2018:
    Bologna Process Implementation Report” paints a broad picture of this ongoing process throughout its seven chapters from various stakeholders' perspectives.

    The report also addresses the key commitments within the context of the EHEA (implementation of a 3-cycle degree structure, quality assurance and recognition), in addition to the other priorities identified Yerevan Communiqué
    (teaching and learning, social inclusion and employability).
    The report is the outcome of a close collaboration between the Bologna Follow-up Group (BFUG): Eurostat, Eurostudent and Eurydice.

    The following organisations were also involved: European University Association, the European Students Union
    and the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education.

    EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force

    The new regulation of the European Union on data protection, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD), comes into force today to give European citizens more control over the collection and use of their personal data on the Internet and reinforce protection in the event of leakage of information.

    The new regulations will serve to give greater confidence to citizens when sharing their data on the network, through, for example, online shopping, submission of income tax return or use of social networks. The RGPD helps to control the use that organisations make of the personal data they collect and guarantees the necessary procedures to protect them.

    European citizens may force companies that have included them in their customer databases to unsubscribe their information to stop receiving unwanted advertising or request the removal of online content that is offensive. Also, they will have the right to claim their personal data stored by the companies supplying online services if they want to change to a new one. Stricter regulations in the treatment of data also implies that Internet users have the right to be informed if a breach by a company puts personal rights and liberties at risk.

    Europe Day celebrations in Spain

    Europe Day celebrates peace and unity in the European continent. The date marks the anniversary of the historical "Schuman Declaration". In a speech delivered in Paris in 1950, French Minister of Foreign Affairs Robert Schuman presented his idea of a new form of political cooperation in Europe where a new war among European nations would be unthinkable. Schuman's proposal is considered the beginning of what is now the European Union and since then, celebrations are held every 9 May.
