What we do


During the three years of the RecoLATIN project, a series of training activities are organised focusing on the main challenges and issues related to the recognition of foreign qualifications and the internationalisation of higher education.

The project partners work together to foster access to official and comprehensive information on different Higher Education systems, encourage the application of the Lisbon Recognition Convention and the Bologna Mobility Tools, implement good practice and methodologies for smooth recognition of foreign qualifications.

Experts from the French, Italian and Norwegian ENIC-NARICs train the partner Universities’ staff from Mexico, Panama and Uruguay and and representatives from the respective Ministries of Higher Education. These trainings are organised on-line and face-to-face.

The project activities also include internships and study visits at the partner ENIC-NARIC centres in France, Italy and Norway and at the partner universities Università di Bologna, Université Paris Descartes and Universitetet i Stavanger.
