The World Conference on Higher Education (Paris, 1998) and the World Conference on Science (Budapest, 1999), together with their respective outcomes, the World Declaration of Higher Education and the Science Agenda. Framework for Action represent two important milestones which defined fundamental principles for the in-depth reform of higher education systems and the advancement of science for society throughout the world.
In the European region, UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe (BRESCE) together with the European Centre for Higher Education (CEPES), in close partnership with regional and international partners, has endeavoured towards implementing the recommendations of these two important documents. In recent years, UNESCO-BRESCE has offered a neutral platform for dialogue and co-operation for policy-makers and academia of the South Eastern Europe. Several events were considered pioneering initiatives in the sub-region. The conclusions and recommendations adopted on that occasions made a clear case for UNESCO to continue to act as a catalyst and neutral broker in the sub-region with a view of supporting SEE countries in the development and implementation of quality science, higher education and innovation policies.
