“LAB Quality that unites us” Technical Training and Innovation Program Presentation Event

17 November, 2022 hora: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) of Spain and UNESCO IESALC organize the first technical training and innovation program “LAB Quality that unites us” within the Intercoonecta Plan of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), which will take place from January to December 2023.

The proposal consists of the design, through a dialogue among equals and in a co-creation scheme, of an innovative accompaniment program in the higher knowledge space in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is focused on the sustainable development of the 2030 Agenda and the strengthening of the quality systems of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), with the objective of facilitating confidence in the quality systems of HEIs to favor mutual trust and talent mobility (students and faculty) in the region. The heart of the program is based on the conclusions of the Third UNESCO World Higher Education Conference (WHEC) held in Barcelona last May. The program includes content related to academic integrity, institutional accreditation, sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion, taxonomy of knowledge in Spanish, digital transformation, etc.

The ANECA and UNESCO IESALC Technical Training and Innovation Program Presentation Event will take place on November 17, 2022, from 12h00 to 14h00 (Spanish time GMT+2). The event will be broadcasted through ANECA TV.
