Many instruments and tools are already at our disposal making recognition and quality assurance easier through the co-operation and mutual understanding. These tools and instruments are encouraging potential collaboration and exchange and brain circulation between Asia and Europe. This session will take a closer look at some instruments dealing with recognition and quality assurance, present projects that focus on specific issues within this broad area of recognition and quality assurance and should open up for discussion.

Learning pathways have been proposed as a continuous curriculum design but individual learning pathways have changed in time, lifelong learning policies react to that. The different educational sectors are confronted with this newer mind-set and have to adapt to this issues. The projects presented show the diversity and the different approaches that have been chosen to address the needs of the different educational sectors meeting the needs of the individuals in Asia and Europe.

A close co-operation between education and science with business is highly relevant. The strong demand for employability challenges both education/science and business. This session addresses the involvement of the private sector and the necessity for both sides to co-operate. The challenges might seem unbreachable but the successful models of co-operation between academia and non-academia are fruitful. The lifelong learning policies set in place in most countries are helpful translating the needs and supporting new models of management and collaboration.
