ANQA (National Centre for Professional Education Quality Assurance Foundation) and NVAO (Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatieorganisatie) are involved in a World Bank project that goes under the name of ARQATA: Armenia Quality Assurance and Technical Assistance. The cooperation between ANQA as a developing QA agency and NVAO as an expert QA agency is considered to be a success by both parties. The shared ownership makes for a great commitment at different levels, and all parties (QA agencies, universities, students, peers) recognise the added value of their joint enterprise. The international QA development project is also of particular interest for higher education in the post-Soviet region. This workshop deals with project management in higher education preparing developing countries to successfully cooperate with international expert agencies to further improve their QA system.
