EU Tempus Program
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. The EU Tempus program supports the modernization of higher education in the partner countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Mediterranean region, mainly through university cooperation projects.
The EU Agency
The EACEA is responsible for the management of Tempus Program. In general EACEA is responsible for the management of certain parts of the EU’s programs in the fields of education, culture and audiovisual. Fully operational from the 1st of January 2006, the Executive Agency operates under supervision from its three parent Directorates-General of the European Commission:Education and Culture (DG EAC), Communication (DG COMM) and EuropeAid Development and Cooperation (DG DEVCO).
Since 2001, a complete strategy has been launched for the institutional accreditation in the University of Alicante (UA) by the National Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ANECA). UA has a quality unit and has an efficient system of innovation support measures in place, including units such as Research promotion and Technological Transfer Office, international projects offices and innovation unit. The University has an extensive experience in managing and implementing international projects in quality assurance (FP6, FP7, CIP, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink, etc.) in numerous countries, inter alia, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Morocco, Libya, Serbia, Macedonia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
We believe that each project carries its own characteristic and therefore, an ad hoc quality plan will be designed and applied to PROGREEN activities. As the work package leader in quality control of the project, UA will continuously monitor project activities and outcomes, have internal quality control expert involved and provide constructive feedback to the co-ordinator. Evaluation will be conducted through surveys and face-to-face communication during consortium meeting. In addition, project outputs and outcomes will be compared with the project plan and work calendar.
