AbstractThe Bologna Process is an ongoing process of integration and harmonization of Higher Education systems within Europe. It is arguably the most important and wide ranging reform of Higher Education facing Universities today. Its conceptual framework and action lines have the ultimate objective of establishing a European Higher Education Area, where academic staff and students could move with ease and have quick fair recognition of their qualifications and competences.

The commitment by 40 countries to reform their Higher Education systems in order to converge toward the harmonization of academic degrees and quality assurance practices is a challenging task, not only for universities, but for several international organizations, including the Council of Europe.
This paper will put into perspective how standardization efforts can help solve the challenging interoperability problems paving the road toward the harmonization of Higher Education at international level. it will focus on providing a context for understanding international standardization activities such as identify the standard-making bodies and describe the life-cycle of standards. It will also expand on issues such as the critical adoption dilemma as well as key success factors like bridging the gap between standardization authorities and the implementation community. In conclusion it will showcase real ongoing projects and their expected impact on Bologna Process while providing references for further investigation and opportunities for direct involvement.
