EQPR – European Qualifications Passport for Refugees
In 2018, the project, conceived by the Council of Europe, has been adapted to Italy and funded by the Ministry of Education, University and Research.
The project has a three-year duration and takes place at Italian HEIs under the coordination of CIMEA.
Cooperation with higher education institutions was strongly desired because the European Qualifications Passport for Refugees, that is issued in case the assessment is successful, is a tool that can be used in the enrolment procedures for refugees who, having achieved a qualification, do not have documents to prove it.
Partners now include the ENIC centres of Italy, Armenia, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK.
