Also, the Rectors‘ Council of Moldova and the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Moldova participated.

All Moldovan partners succeeded in developing and adopting university strategies on IoHE and research as well as strategies for increasing the quality and scope of academic mobility, at the National level the standards for accreditation of joint and double degrees and the regulation on academic mobility and recognition of degrees. The Roadmap on IoHE also unified information on IoHE and research/the national guidelines for incoming mobility were all elaborated and adopted as well.

All the achieved results are already helping the Moldovan higher education sector to engage with their enhanced institutional capacities in large-scale internationalization collaborations.
