Over the last years the probability of higher education graduates to get a job decreased in many EU countries. In this context it is important to understand what determines graduate’s early career success and what it actually means. This issue increasingly provide a starting point for quality assurance mechanisms and governance principles at the different levels of higher education systems. In 2009, 2011 and 2012 three large international conferences, DEHEMS Network and EMCOSU project tried to provide answers to the following questions:
What is the overall idea of higher education institutions about how your studies take into account the future professional activities of their graduates?
What does higher education institutions do to successfully help graduates to make the transition to work?
Where do higher education institutions see major developmental needs?
Which are the most relevant modes of cooperation between universities and enterprises and why?
