The Ministry of Education and Culture from Finland
Who are we?
The Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland participates in the work of the Government by planning, outlining and implementing its policies. These policies include development of education, science, cultural, sport and youth policies. The Ministry is responsible for ensuring that the political decision-makers have all the necessary information at their disposal when making decisions.
Why we are participating in the project
The Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture has a long tradition within the Bologna Process. They are leading the current presidency of the EU and will prepare all EU (and also BFUG) meetings that take place between July 2019 and January 2021. They have extensive experience in leading and organising meetings, not only within the presidency. Finland has also been a co-chair of the Bologna Peer Group on QF and ECTS since September 2018. Therefore they are a perfect partner in this project that seeks to build further on the work in the peer groups.
