The partners of the QFORTE project “Enhancement of Quality Assurance in Higher Education System in Moldova”, have gathered for the project's closing conference at which the results and assessment reports were presented along with international institutional accreditations. The conference showcased the objectives that have been achieved over these years.

The sessions took place over two days, starting with a welcome from the representatives of Moldovan institutions. During the first session, the results of strengthening the quality of the higher education system in Moldova were presented, along with a presentation on stakeholders' perceptions of institutional accreditation.

The conference continued with the participation of our colleagues, Marta Plaza and Ana Belén Gil, in a session titled 'The Development of Quality Assurance in the Republic of Moldova: Perspectives from Abroad'.

On the second day of the conference, it was explained how exploration, sustainability and impact were maximized, and the final report of the QFORTE project was presented.


The QFORTE project is an initiative funded with the support of the European Commission under the Erasmus+ program, an innovative action aimed at strengthening quality assurance in Moldova's higher education system. QFORTE seeks to contribute to a deeper integration of the country into the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) through significant improvements in educational quality, based on the implementation of accreditation and quality systems in the Moldovan university system.

The short-term initiatives of the project focused on stakeholder engagement, legislation development, and capacity strengthening through training workshops and pilot programs. Infrastructure and technology updates, including the launch of a QA management platform and data systems, were also part of the efforts.

For its part, long-term objectives involved legislative integration, comprehensive training, and partnerships with international entities. Monitoring and feedback loops were established by means of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Institutional QA departments were created, ensuring continuous funding. International accreditation was enhanced through guidance, financial support, and comparison with global competitiveness standards.
