The use of digital technologies is playing an increasingly important role in establishing and improving transparent and fair recognition procedures in the European Higher Education Area. In the field of student mobility in particular, the design of digital processes facilitated by databases and the digital exchange of student data is technically advanced and furthermore politically supported. Reflecting on these developments, the roundtable will attempt to take stock of the current state and persisting challenges in the digitalisation of recognition as well as whether and how digital learning and micro-credentials can play a crucial role in this field.
