This Working Group is established in the context of the Open Method of Coordination under the ET 2020 strategic framework for European cooperation on education and training. The primary focus of the Working Group is to benefit the Member States in their work of furthering policy development on modernisation of higher education through mutual learning and the identification of good practices. The Working Group will concentrate on delivering concrete and useable outputs that respond to the strategic aims of both ET 2020 and Europe 2020. It will be actively engaged to provide assistance to clusters of Member States in responding to issues identified in country specific recommendations, by having such Member States benefit from the practical experience and good practices of other Member States. The Working Group supports Member State (and other participating countries’) reforms to maximise the potential of higher education systems to provide high quality higher education, preparing graduates for changing labour markets and changing societies; increasing Europe's innovation capacity and contributing to growth and jobs. The Working Group will in particular focus on a number of new and emerging priority areas. These are in line with the priority areas defined by the Strategic Framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020), updated in 2015 and the Bologna process
