Due to the exisiting challenges of the quality assurance system in the three targeted countries, insufficient expertise both in terms of personnel, tools and infortmation, poor co-ordination or communication between nation and universities´ authorities, and the lack of cooperation among, Ministries, Quality Assurance Agencies and universities, CUBRIK has set specific objectives to improve the current situation:

  1. Creation of a quality assurance framework through the development of common QA practices and network at national and regional level.
  2. Strengthening capacity building through targeted training programmes and pilot assessment activities for the external institutional assessment of Universities and Quality Assurance Agencies in Western Balkans.
