Project Duration: from 15 January 2021 to 14 January 2024.
The overarching goal of APPRAIS is to support, through the cooperation with European institutions, the rebuilding and modernisation of the governance system of higher education institutions (HEIs) in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, with a specific focus on strategic planning, quality assurance and Bologna process implementation. To institutionalize good governance practices in Iraqi HEIs also means enforcing institutional values such as autonomy, accountability, participation, quality assurance, and internationalization, as well as implementing well-structured management systems. The project will contribute to the development and modernization of the HE sector in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, supporting HEIs in meeting international standards and empowering university staff to effectively manage and implement changes.
