This conference is the final event of the Erasmus+ co-funded "Spotlight on recognition" project. Through a mix of plenary and breakout sessions, it will be an opportunity to reflect on lessons learnt from the project and be informed about ongoing developments and other projects in the field of academic recognition. The event will also offer an occasion to network with peers from across the European Higher Education Area and to share institutional approaches to recognition. It will also host the launch of the final project publication, which is a self-assessment tool for institutional staff responsible for the implementation of recognition processes and decisions.
The Erasmus+ co-funded "Spotlight on recognition" project supports staff at higher education institutions who are responsible for recognition processes and decisions by enhancing their capacities in terms of procedures for complying with the Lisbon Recognition Convention.
The final conference will be of interest to institutional staff responsible for academic recognition, such as vice-rectors, including for internationalisation, academic affairs and quality assurance, as well as for admissions officers and credential evaluators. It is also open to anyone with an interest in the recognition of qualifications and study periods abroad, as well as prior learning. The conference is organised by EUA, in partnership with the Spanish Rectors’ Conference (Crue), the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) and Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education.
Participation in this event is free of charge.
