EUA: Supporting universities in EU neighboring countries
Two new projects will support the development of higher education institutions in a number of regions neighboring the EU
The European University Association (EUA) is behind the initiative of these two projects. The first one, entitled ‘Fostering Sustainable and Autonomous Higher Education Systems in the Eastern Neighboring Area’ (ATHENA), will involve universities in Armenia, Moldova and Ukraine and during three years, EUA will organize a series of national workshops with the aim of increasing awareness of the importance of institutional autonomy for the modernization of universities’ management structures.
The second one, entitled ‘Empowering Universities to fulfill their responsibility for Quality Assurance’ (EUREQA), will involve universities from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo and wants to improve their internal quality assurance (QA) processes and in linking them into a comprehensive, all-encompassing system that leads to the enhancement of quality and the creation of a quality culture.
Both projects are co-funded by the Tempus Programme of the European Commission, which supports the modernization of higher education systems in the EU's surrounding area.
