EMREX is the solution for electronic transfer of achievement records between HEIs in Europe and supports student mobility with smooth and fast transfer of records. EMREX is co-funded by ERASMUS+ and is currently conducting a field trial in Denmark, Finland, Italy, Norway and Sweden with additional countries already signing up. We will show how EMREX works and present some findings from the field trial. We will also address the more general privacy issue and other obstacles related to electronic exchanges across countries, and how we can solve them. We will also present the student’s view and feedback on EMREX and show possible implications of ownership of achievement records. Is it the student who owns the records, and what would that mean? How do we see the long term implications of EMREX, and how can it be used as a building block for automatic recognition, admission services and credential verification across countries and HEIs? We will also examine how EMREX is linked to the EU’s goals on student mobility.
