Project Description:  EUA has a long-term record in working on QA in Europe and it has worked with its members in developing their internal QA systems through a variety of activities. While many of these activities have been co-funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Program, the participation in such activities has been limited to universities from the LLP-eligible countries. Consequently, universities in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosova have not yet been able to take full advantage of these activities. Considering this background, the project aims to share with the universities from these countries the considerable experience and knowledge of EUA and the universities in the EU member states in developing efficient internal QA systems adapted to different national and institutional contexts.


The objectives of the project are:

  • to support universities in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo in improving their internal quality assurance (QA) processes and linking them into a comprehensive, all-encompassing system that leads to the enhancement of quality and the creation of a quality culture;
  • to foster the transfer of good practices from EU countries to promote innovative approaches to internal QA;
  • to develop networks between the partner universities to facilitate future cooperation; and
  • to facilitate the involvement of the Western Balkans’ universities in European-level discussions on QA.


Funded by:  European Commission through Tempus IV – 5th Call for Proposals EACEA 25/2011
