Cooperation agreement signed with the Italian national agency for quality assurance – ANVUR

On June 22, 2022, AKOKVO signed an Agreement on Cooperation with the Italian National Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ANVUR – National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes) in Rome. The three-year cooperation between the two national agencies, embodied in study visits, staff exchanges and expert participation in workshops, was formalized through an agreement on cooperation in quality improvement and development of quality culture in higher education, as well as exchange of experts and reviewers in external evaluation processes. The agreement will also contribute to joint participation in thematic analyzes and research, cross-border quality assurance and evaluation of joint study programs of higher education institutions of both countries. Of common interest will be participation in projects, meetings and working groups as an opportunity to exchange good practices and knowledge.

In 2019, ANVUR became a full member of ENQA and registered in EQAR, as a confirmation of the compliance of the higher education system with European standards. This experience is important for the processes that follow in the quality assurance system in Montenegro, from applying for membership to the evaluation process by ENQA. During the visit to ANVUR, deputy director Tijana Stanković met with the University Evaluation Manager, Dr. Alessio Ancaiani, and talked about reformed methods in the evaluation processes in the direction of reducing bureaucratic barriers, as one of ENQA recommendations to Italian agency.
