Transparent European Accreditation decisions & Mutual recognition agreements II
In the London Communiqué mutual recognition of accreditation and quality assurance decisions, and a significant increase in the number of joint programmes are encouraged. The TEAM II project aims to combine both objectives and to take away accreditation and recognition barriers for joint programmes. It does so (1) by facilitating single accreditation procedures for joint programmes, instead of the multiple procedures that currently have to be carried out separately in each country where the joint programme is provided; (2) by analysing current cross-border recognition practises and (3) by offering transparent information on the quality assessment and learning outcomes of joint programmes.
The European Consortium for Accreditation in higher education (ECA) has been established in Córdoba in November 2003 and renewed in Kraków in June 2008.
