Support LRC compliant recognition practices in HEIs

Agenda of the peer learning activity on 26 November 2019 at IUAV, Palazzo Badoer in Venice, Italy.

Introduction

This Peer Learning Activity (PLA) is part of the Erasmus+ Key Action 3 EHEA Reform project "I-Comply", which is geared towards legal and practical implementation with the Lisbon Recognition Convention in the European Higher Education Area.

The objective of this PLA is to identify and design models of good practice to structurally support LRC compliant recognition practices in higher education institutions (HEIs) from national level. Therefore, different examples will be presented and next discussed by the approximately 25 participants from ENIC-NARICs and other relevant stakeholders. The PLA will be structured around two main questions:

  1. How can ENIC-NARIC centres support HEI in their countries to practice recognition according to the Lisbon Recognition Convention?
  2. How can ENIC-NARICs (and possibly other national actors) support HEI in regards to:
    1. turnaround time;
    2. information provision and
    3. the implementation of ESG standard 1.4?
