The main goal of the SCAN-D project is to foster knowledge of different Higher education degrees in order to promote a better and fair recognition.
The purpose of the project is to collect samples of national degree certificates from Higher Education Institutions of the 24 participating countries: Armenia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium-Flemish Community, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Ukraine.
The samples of the degrees are collected in a database accessible to the staff of the ENIC-NARIC centres, set up by the Ministries of Education in 55 countries: www.enic-naric.net.
The ENIC-NARIC centres assist in promoting mobility of students, teachers and researchers by providing authoritative advices and information concerning the academic recognition of diplomas and periods of study undertaken in other states.
Financed by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme - Action 3 (Support for Policy Reform), the first SCAN-D project was carried out between July 2014 and September 2015, and the SCAN-D 2 project started in April 2016 and ended in September 2017.
