Portuguese ENIC/NARIC Centre participates in the "IMPACT Project"

Within the framework of the competences of the Portuguese ENIC / NARIC Centre, especially regarding the dissemination of "appropriate, reliable and authenticated information about qualifications, teaching systems and recognition procedures", and following this Centre's participation in the SQUARE project - System of Quality Assurance for the Recognition Networks, the Portuguese ENIC / NARIC Centre will be the subject of a quality evaluation, regarding its procedures.

The evaluation process was developed by the ENIC / NARIC Centre of the Netherlands (NUFFIC), within the scope of the SQUARE project, where evaluation tools were shaped in order to allow the ENIC-NARIC centres to perform a critical reflection on compliance with good practices within the nature of the Network, with the aim of improving and/or reinforcing these same practices.

The quality evaluation process follows a timetable that includes for mid-April 2017 a visit of a homologous Centre to the facilities of the Portuguese ENIC/NARIC Centre. In the follow up, our Centre will have to evaluate and visit another Centre (still to be defined).

The evaluations are part of a project led by the Netherlands ENIC / NARIC Center - the IMPACT Project - which counts with the participation of Armenia, Belarus, Belgium (Flanders), Israel, Romania and Russia, in addition to Portugal.
