The project ‘Through Academic Cooperation towards Innovative Capacity’ (TACTIC) aims at developing the capacities of higher education institutions (HEIs) in Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia to modernise the universities’ management, and improve the services and procedures in line with the advanced EU standards. This objective is achieved by:
- Mapping the best practices in Europe, and preparing recommendations and guidelines for the South East Asian (SEA) partners
- Mentoring the human resources, financial departments and student support staff focusing on middle and top management
- Introducing the management information system to support the implementation of new practices
- Establishing advisory offices, and promoting capacity building and staff training activities
- Performing in-depth analysis of the current situation followed by reviews and further recommendations of the participating EU partners
The project is raising awareness and understanding of the target-area policies and practices at national and institutional levels, disseminating them through various presentations, events, and trainings throughout the course of this project. In addition, TACTIC provides a framework for upgrading management practices and policies, and assists with applying the established know-how and proven models to other less advanced HEIs in the South East Asia region.
After assessing the current state of higher education systems in Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia, next stage of the project focuses on developing training modules in the areas identified as crucial for further development of South-East Asian higher education institutions, namely:
- Human resources management
- Financial and administrative management
- Student admission and student support services

- Deliver a training in 3 partner countries in March 2017, with each training being attended by staff members of several higher education institutions;
