RecoASIA – Regional Cooperation in the field of recognition among Asian Countries
The RecoASIA project aims at favouring and increasing the quality of vertical and horizontal mobility within the Asian and European higher education systems by increasing the recognition of qualifications within the Asian and European Region.
The project partners intend to cooperate to improve their competences and skills as credential evaluators defining common practices and creating common tools among the participating European and Asian countries, National Bodies and Higher Education Institutions. Based on the experiences within the Bologna Process, the experience of the participating Higher Education Institutions and practices adopted by the ENIC-NARIC networks this project will contribute to strengthen and increase the collaboration between the European and the Asian regions. In addition, the participation of associated partners from other Asian countries will contribute to enhanced exchanges and mobility within the Asian region. Ultimately, the actions foreseen by the RecoASIA project will foster each participant’s experience with regard to recognition thus facilitating international student and professional mobility.
In addition to facilitating mutual trust and understanding, the RecoASIA project allows the sharing of relevant information on the educational systems of both regions. Activities such as the analysis of the practices applied in each country, the analysis of the mobility flows among both regions, and training on recognition practices grant better understanding of the needs of each participating country.
A specific focus will be put on controversial recognition cases and sectors such as transnational education (TNE) and international institutions, distant learning qualifications, non-traditional education and methodologies for the assessment of refugee qualifications.
The project will run for 36 months, starting from November 2019.
The project is co-funded by the EU within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme.
