The REFLEX project (acronym for âResearch into Employment and professional FLEXibilityâ) is a large scale international project that has been carried in 16 different countries. It focuses on the demands that the modern knowledge society places on higher education graduates, and the degree to which higher education equips graduates with the competencies to meet these demands.
In the project three studies were carried out: (1) a country study highlighting the main structural and institutional factors that shape the relation between higher education and work in the different countries involved in the study; (2) a qualitative study on graduate competences in the knowledge society; (3) a survey of higher education graduates in these countries (for more information, see www.reflexproject.org). The results of the first two studies have been published separately (Koucky, Meng and Van der Velden, 2007; Arthur, Brennan and De Weert, 2007) . The current report presents the general findings of the third study, the survey among graduates.
