Project Results

The first outcome of the project will be the definition of standards for quality assurance (QA) and requirements for quality of study programmes (SPs) in partner countries (PCs) consistent with the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG) for internal QA of higher education institutions (HEI).

The definition of SP quality requirements will be the starting point for the identification of information and data for the QA of SPs in PCs, which will constitute the second outcome of the project.

Finally, implementation of the positions of responsibility and of the facilities for the management of the identified information and data and implementation of the software for their on-line management in all the partner universities will be the main outcomes of the third and last year of the project.
