About the event
The LIREQA project organised a conference on linkages between academic recognition and quality assurance in Vilnius, Lithuania on 22 May 2019.
The event was organised as a final activity of the LIREQA project and was geared to those working within QA agencies, ENIC/NARIC centres, and HEIs. The conference discussed recommendations on how recognition of final qualifications, study periods and RPL could be improved, and how cooperation between the three target audiences could also be enhanced in the spirit of expectations under ESG 1.4 (Student admission, progression, recognition and certification).
The LIREQA consortium was led by SKVC (Lithuania, coordinator) and consists of AIC (Latvia), NOKUT (Norway), Nuffic (the Netherlands), the French Commission des Titres d’Ingénieur (CTI), ANECA (Spain), AQU Catalunya (Spain), Unibasq (Spain), and ENQA. The project’s Advisory Board included President of Intergovernmental Lisbon Recognition Convention Committee (LRCC); representative of European Student Union (ESU); representative of higher education institutions, coming from EUA; external expert from Ireland, former member of NARIC Advisory Board.
