Confidence-building measures in the field of education



On 17-18 November 2010, the Council of Europe in co-operation with Odessa National University named after I.I. Mechnikov organised a seminar “Promoting quality culture in higher education institutions on both sides of the river Dniestr/Nistru. This seminar focused on internal quality development and assurance in higher education institutions, exploring the role of university leadership, academic staff and students in promoting and advancing quality culture.
The event, which gathered academic representatives from higher education institutions from both sides of the river Dniestr, provided a very productive platform for discussion and exchange of experiences and good practices.
