To better serve its members and ensure INQAAHE adds value to the operations and functions of its members, INQAAHE launches a new initiative – INQAAHE Funding Scheme (IFS). The initiative is undertaken in pursuance of INQAAHE Strategic Plan (2013-2017) implementation and in line with the Constitution.
The IFS envisions provision of small grants to INQAAHE members on competitive basis to promote implementation of innovative and enhancement projects aimed at enhancement of quality assurance systems worldwide.
The IFS is designed to:
- Create more opportunities for capacity building for both advanced QA systems and developing ones:
- Increase opportunities for research and innovation in QA, in particular, the role of QA in the promotion of relevance of learning outcomes and employability;
- Enable enhanced cooperation among the INQAAHE members leading to a better understanding of the values, cultures and needs of different systems - a crucial step towards establishment of a better learning environment for students and faculty members to perform.
