At the European Council meeting 14 December higher education was one of the most prioritised areas on the agenda. Besides declaring the efforts to boost mobility and student exchange with the Erasmus+ programme, a European Student Card was introduced with purpose to develop student participation in cultural activities across Europe. Another agreement at the meeting was the intention of creating 20 European Universities in order to further simplify the process of combining studies in different EU member states and still earn a degree. The way forward is to develop bottom-up networks of universities all over the European Union. The agreement also includes the promotion of that young people should learn at least two languages in addition to their mother tongue. Source: European Council
