EI is highly committed to the discussion regarding the future of the Bologna Process after 2010 and part of this meeting was devoted to this issue. Other topics discussed were academic freedom, climate change, researchers careers and matters relating to European Union work in the area of higher education and research.

The committee also assessed the work undertaken by EI for the joint campaign on Staff and Student Mobility, with the European Students' Union (ESU). The campaign's website was officially launched in the presence of the State Secretary for Science of Croatia, Dr Draÿen Vikiÿ-Topiÿ. The site will include an interactive wiki section where students and staff can exchange knowledge and mobility experiences, a flash game and an online petition. A "Mobility Barometer" is also under construction to assess progress made.
