The most radical changes in the educational systems of post-communist societies have occurred in the field of higher education. University autonomy, accountability and quality assurance have been identified as the most critical areas for countries in transition, which have the mission to develop a strong and skilled workforce. Especially in South East European (SEE) countries are facing a growing demand for skilled labour force. Beyond the question of numbers of students, Balkan countries also face significant problems with the quality assurance that adversely affects the quality of HEIs.

CUBRIK is to strengthen the quality assurance system in the universities in Bosnia and Herzagovina, Macedonia and Serbia at university, national and regional levels.
