Full text is not currently available for this publication.


The higher education scene is in a state of constant change. The trends and developments in the demographics and in the labour market, the emergence of global educational markets and the creation of the European Higher Education Area, based on the Bologna process, all place increasing pressure on the quality of education and research and thus on the national competitiveness. The Ministry of Education’s draft development plan on education and research for the coming five-year period stresses that more attention be paid especially to the regional engagement and the quality assurance mechanisms in higher education.
