24 This report clearly shows that we are on track to achieve the central objective of creating the European Higher Education Area by Greater compatibility of the different national European education degree structures has been achieved through significant reforms, and now the challenge is to work on quality, namely the content and profile of qualifications to ensure that they are meaningful and relevant within and beyond national boundaries. The main Bologna tools – ECTS, Diploma Supplement, and National Qualifications Frameworks – that the European Commission is proud to have helped to develop – are also now becoming well established features of the European higher education landscape. Nevertheless the message is also that we have progress to make in using these tools well, and that we will have to step up our efforts considerably if we are to ensure more widespread mobility in the European Higher Education Area.
