FilmEU Leadership Statement

FilmEU, the European University for Film and Media Arts represented by the Academic Council, comprising Rectors, Presidents, Deans, steering committee, student and staff representatives convened in Bratislava, Slovakia on the 4th of June 2024 and unanimously agreed to issue the following statement:

"Following on from our European Degree Label Policy Experimentation project, ETIKETA, FilmEU – European University of Film and Media Arts welcome the Commission’s focus on cross-border cooperation and continued efforts to remove regulatory obstacles to better integrate and align national policies across our member states in support of a future European degree classification.

We recognise, and are committed to working closely with our national quality agencies, to advance the ongoing transformational process the European Universities initiative entails. The European Education Area – and our alliance – ultimately supports increased mobility and includes a vision for better teaching and learning along with stronger research and innovation.

We also welcome the collaborative efforts that led to the publication of the European Education package. We particularly look forward to further developing our ideas and proposals on the pathway to a European degree framework that we are convinced will greatly benefit our individual Institutions and other Alliances of national peer institutions in their internationalisation efforts."
