The seminar will focus on recognition – specifically, the recognition of qualifications. This is the first time that HERE colleagues will be offered an overview of the topic. The seminar will have a strong didactic flavour, with presentations aimed at informing HEREs who are unfamiliar with the values and processes of recognition. For HEREs who are experienced in the field, there will be opportunity to meet and debate with some of the experts at the forefront of current European initiatives. The seminar is open to all members of the HERE community: ministry and national agency officials, senior managers of institutions, student representatives, academic and administrative staff working in quality assurance and international relations.
