These reports are based on the results of a large-scale survey among graduates (extension of REFLEX) and surveys among the largest employers and HE institutions. They include country based reference points for the organisation of HE curricula, considerations for the organisation of teaching practices, cooperation with enterprises including students’ apprenticeship, the integration of research activities into curricula and critical elements for the development of instruments for HE quality assurance and monitoring, universities’ career centres and the organisation of HE practicum and competence development in general.
