In recent decades, in most EU countries, there has been a significant increase in the share of the population with higher education. This phenomenon, generally viewed positively as contributing to building a knowledge-based economy and improving the competitiveness of EU economies, raises concerns about the effectiveness of the functioning of national education sectors. Interestingly, significant differences between member states, both in terms of the dynamics and the structures of higher education, are observed. The purpose of this article is to discuss some differences in the share of people with higher education, to identify the main potential consequences of the changes observed and to identify the most important challenges for the sector of higher education in the EU in the coming years. The context of the analysis provided by the Europe 2020 Strategy.

W ostatnich dekadach w większości krajów UE nastąpił znaczący wzrost udziału w populacji osób z wyższym wykształceniem. Zjawisko to, generalnie postrzegane pozytywnie jako mające sprzyjać budowie gospodarki opartej na wiedzy oraz podnoszeniu konkurencyjności gospodarek krajów UE, budzi też obawy związane z efektywnością funkcjonowania krajowych sektorów edukacji. Co ciekawe, obserwuje się znaczące różnice między krajami członkowskimi zarówno w zakresie dynamiki zmian częstości, jak i struktury kształcenia na poziomie wyższym. Celem artykułu jest omówienie wybranych różnic w zakresie odsetka osób z wyższym wykształceniem, wskazanie głównych potencjalnych konsekwencji obserwowanych zmian oraz identyfikacja najważniejszych wyzwań dla sektora edukacji wyższej w UE w najbliższych latach. Kontekstem analizy są zapisy Strategii Europa 2020.
