Tuesday 28 April in Leuven - Wednesday 29 April in Louvain-la-Neuve
Bologna Ministerial Conference
Since 1999, the year in which the Bolgona Declaration was adopted, the Ministers of Education involved in the Bologna process meet every two years in a European city to take stock of the progress of the reform: Prague in 2001, Berlin in 2003, Bergen in 2005, London in 2007 and, finally, Leuven and Louvain-la-Neuve in 2009.
On 28 and 29 April 2009, K.U.Leuven and UCL will host the Bologna Ministerial Conference on behalf of the Benelux.
Forty-six different ministerial delegations will attend this major event, as well as representatives of international organisations and countries that are not part of the Bologna-zone but who are interested by the reform.
