Bologna Declaration is the joint declaration of European Ministers of Education signed in Bologna in June 1999. It refers to the reform of higher education systems in Europe and it is a foundation of the Bologna Process.
The key goal of the Bologna Process is to develop European Higher Education Area in order to improve employment and mobility of population, as well as to achieve international competitiveness of the European higher education.
Montenegro has participated in the Bologna Process since 2003, and the membership and status of Montenegro in this process as an independent and internationally recognized state was confirmed in the Ministerial conference held in London in 2007.
Key task of higher education and implementation of the Bologna Declaration is to ensure that every student can obtain the quality education which can give him/her the knowledge, capabilities and skills that will make him/her competitive in the local, regional and global labour market.
