Eesti Rakenduskõrgkoolide Rektorite Nõukogu (RKRN)

The aim of the Foundation is to organize and carry out the projects of the members of Rectors’ Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences of Estonia (RCUAS). The unique co-operation network established in the beginning of the 1990s today includes 10 different UAS. Although the members of the RCUAS represent very different fields of study, they still see further need for co-operation in order to develop the common elements of different fields of applied higher education. Some of the most important keywords are quality, education policy, image development, international relations, etc. Combined efforts are applied in order to meet the needs and quality thresholds of the society by carrying out projects and programs that stimulate the development of higher applied education.
