29th Annual Joint Meeting of the ENIC-NARIC Networks
Hosted by QQI and NARIC Ireland, the annual meeting of the networks gathered 125 representatives of the national centres from 49 countries, going far beyond Europe and including Australia, Canada, Kyrgyzstan and the USA. After two years of virtual meetings the in-person meeting took place at Technological University Dublin, Grangegorman Campus over two days on the 20th and 21st June 2022.
The meeting provided delegates with an opportunity for an update on the latest Networks’ activities, sharing information and good practices on the relevant topics, such as digitization of recognition, quality assurance, flexibilization/microcredentials, fraud in education, global dimension of higher education, recognition of refugees’ qualifications, just to name a few.
The event celebrated the 25th anniversary of the joint Council of Europe/UNESCO Lisbon Recognition Convention, which remains a key legal instrument for fair recognition of qualifications in Europe.
QQI would like to thank TU Dublin and the European Commission for their support of the event.
The ENIC-NARIC network of European and international centres provide essential information on qualifications to prospective students seeking access to education programmes and other opportunities across the global education sector.
The annual joint meeting supports multilateral cooperation through sharing of information on recognition policies and practices. Consisting of plenary and break-out sessions, the two-day programme brought together participants with diverse backgrounds and expertise to discuss and share insights on:
- supporting multilateral cooperation through sharing qualification-recognition information on policies and practices
- providing opportunities for capacity building activities
The annual joint meeting is a members-only event. However, representatives of non-governmental organisations may also be invited to attend the meeting as observers.
