The Ministry of Education and Research, through the National Center for Recognition and Equivalence of Diplomas (CNRED), has become a partner in the European project Enhancing the Coverage and Connectivity of QA in the EHEA through DEQAR (DEQAR CONNECT), funded by Erasmus PLUS, a project for ENIC/NARIC networks of national recognition centers and Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education.
The coordinator of the project is the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR) (EQAR), and the implementation period is 24 months, starting with March 2020.
The aim of the DEQAR CONNECT project is to expand the involvement of quality assurance agencies in higher education in the European Higher Education Area and to improve connectivity by exploring new opportunities to use DEQAR data directly in the recognition workflow, digital accreditation, etc.
Through this project, the Ministry of Education and Research will use the data taken from the DEQAR database within its own electronic platforms, in order to streamline the process of evaluating the recognition and equivalence files.
CNRED recently participated, together with the centers in Italy, the Netherlands and France, in the video conference launching the DEQAR CONNECT project (available here).
