ABSTRACT
This report is written based on a note provided by ICDE’s Secretary General Gard Titlestad to the Norwegian Government. It has been slightly modified to adapt it for an international audience and a working translation has been made from the original Norwegian text.

The conclusions in the report in particular address the governmental layer, the macro level in the educational system, even though they can also have relevance for senior management in institutions (micro level) and the research and infrastructure stakeholders (meso level).
