“Enhancing the Coverage and Connectivity of QA in the EHEA through DEQAR” 

Project duration: 01.02.2020 – 31.01.2022

At the beginning of 2020 NCPA joined the consortium of the DEQAR CONNECT project “Enhancing the Coverage and Connectivity of QA in the EHEA through DEQAR”.

DEQAR is a database of higher education institutions and programmes accredited by agencies recognized at the European level. The main aim of DEQAR is to widely inform public about accreditation agencies and their decisions at international, European and national levels. Russian higher education institutions which passed international accreditation by an agency recognized by ENQA and registered in EQAR have a right to upload accredited programmes into DEQAR database. It confirms their correspondence to ESG-2015 standards and is a base for recognition of these programmes and HEIs on the territory of the EHEA.

DEQAR CONNECT project is coordinated by EQAR and is financially supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

The project focuses on two of the EHEA key commitments, supporting quality assurance and recognition inside the EHEA, and consists of two strands:

  • Expand coverage to EHEA countries currently under-represented in DEQAR, by supporting the participation of agencies that could not join DEQAR in the first stage.
  • Enhance connectivity by exploiting existing synergies and exploring new opportunities to use DEQAR data directly in the recognition workflow, digital credentialing and elsewhere.
