IMPACT: Quality and Impact of the Recognition Networks
The IMPACT project pursues the following three objectives:
- to extend the quality assurance and peer review system of recognition offices, including facilitating a new round of peer reviews;
- to explore how to connect admissions officers to the ENIC-NARIC networks and launch a first version of a European Admissions Officers platform (using the 600+ participants of the STREAM online training and good practice platform as a starting point);
- to assess the impact of the ENIC-NARIC networks on recognition in the EHEA (making use of EUA’s evaluation expertise).
The Core project team consists of EP-Nuffic (coordinator), UK NARIC, NARIC France, NARIC Denmark, NARIC Lithuania, NARIC Italy, and the European University Association (subcontractor). The Sub team assists the Core team in implementing the project goals and includes NARICs from Ireland and Latvia. The Steering Group consists of: President ENIC Bureau, Vice-President LRC Committee, BFUG Representative (subcontractor), European Consortium for Accreditation – ECA (subcontractor), the European University Association – EUA (subcontractor) and the German Hochschulrektorenkonferenz (HRK).
The project runs from 1 March 2016 to 28 February 2018. IMPACT is
co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.
