Ongoing Projects

HAQAA2

Harmonisation of African Higher Education, Quality Assurance and Accreditation (HAQAA) is an initiative that has been established to support the development of a harmonised quality assurance and accreditation system at institutional, national, regional and Pan-African continental level. It is funded by the European Union Commission, in the context of the Africa-EU Strategic Partnership. Phase one (HAQAA1) was implemented from 2016-2018. HAQAA 2 (2019 – 2022) is intended to build upon, upscale and promote the results of HAQAA1.

VITA GLOBAL

The project creates a unique consortium that brings together universities from diverse and mostly non-urban regions in South America, Georgia, Europe and South Africa and allows these universities to map and compare their contribution, via teaching and research, to local development and local economies.

It embeds the development of joint study programmes in a specific discipline – viticulture (of relevance to all partners) – into wider staff training exercises, so as to foster deeper ‘North-South-emerging country’ strategic partnerships in higher education. It responds equally to Europe policy priorities for higher education internationalisation and regional development, as it does to partner country priorities for internationalizing and modernizing study programmes and generating local impact and local development.

EQUAM-LA

Equam-La aims at advancing the Latin American Higher Education Space in areas such as recognition of degrees and credits across borders by reinforcing and connecting quality assurance systems for higher education, in which universities and QA agencies are key partners and drivers

Equam-La hence proposes to support universities and national agencies to work together to improve and reinforce internal QA management and processes and link them to specific areas, like recognition, so as to underpin regional integration.   

MIMIR ANDINO

The MIMIR ANDINO project is designed primarily to help and encourage partner universities in South American countries to better understand the status quo of their research management approaches, from performance and evaluation to management structures and effectiveness.

NEPREV

NEPREV is a capacity building project in higher education co-funded by the Education, Culture and Audiovisual Executive Agency (EACEA) from the European Union under the Erasmus + KA2.

The Project aims to setting up a multidisciplinary joint master program open to Tunisian, European, and African participants and dedicated to the Next Production Revolution: confluence of digital technologies (e.g. 3D printing, the Internet of Things, advanced robotics) new materials (e.g. bio- or nano-based),  new processes (e.g. data-driven production, artificial intelligence).

NEPREV project is expected to help to reinforce the role of Tunisian universities in connecting with their socioeconomic environment and bridge the gap between academic research and industry

EQUAM BI

The project aims at coordinating efforts in developing an understanding of the concepts and introducing a culture of benchmarking in India as a mean of encouraging institutional reform and as a tool for measuring how effectively universities are governed. The aim is to set a cluster of quantitative and qualitative indicators as a means of identifying targets for achievement to benchmark progress aim at improving the quality management and hence quality of education, research, innovation, and internationalisation in Indian universities in general and comparing best practices with European Universities.

GRADUA

The project aims at set up in Albania an innovative IT based platform for graduates tracking and employability at support of policy making and HE reform. The platform is different with respect to existent experiences (databases/job intermediaries): it is an integrated and certified demand/supply matching model based on the online DB of Albanian graduates, easily “replicable” in new universities.

It will also support it in creating procedures and communication ways with the HEIs (public and private) based on mutual trust to ensure a sustainable appropriation of QA rules in the MA HE system. The project will play a major role in more closely aligning Moroccan HE with some of the most successful aspects of the European Bologna Process and thus contribute to enhancing recognition, mobility and internationalisation.
