    [From the Introduction]. Ladislav Cerych, senior adviser to TEMPUS, in writing about Western Europe in 1992 (1989 Cerych) has enumerated the significant areas in higher education for reference after 1992: curriculum, global and diversified system, institutional automony, responsibility, and responsiveness, competitiveness, equality of opportunity, continuing education, cooperation with industry, use of communication and information techologies, contribution to economic and social cohesion and to regional development and foreign language teaching and learning. He does not rank the items in this exhaustive enumeration. Although it would be useful for Western Europe and Community planning to establish priorities, it would be even more valuable to decide which of these areas should be dealt with now with respect to Central/East Europe. While TEMPUS has selected Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia as being sufficiently advanced for its program and the Federal Republic of Germany partly under the aegis of the Community has a plan, apparently controversial in its mainly absorption approach for higher education in its eastern lander, it is not clear what the immediate priorities are for Cerych's decalogue. (Cerych, 1989).
