Earlier this year, the National Centre for Recognition and Equivalence of Diplomas (CNRED) became, as a member of the Network of Centres of national recognition ENIC / NARIC, partner in a European project funded by Erasmus + action 3. The National Center for recognition in Italy – https://www.cimea.it is the project coordinator and the implementation period is between April 2016 and September 2017.

The project aims to strengthen mutual understanding of different systems of higher education abroad, by building a common database for the collection of forms of education documents (diploma / transcript) issued over time in higher education. In this project, 10 states participate, namely Armenia, Austria, Estonia, France, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania and Ukraine.

The database is accessible only to staff within the Centers for recognition of the 55 member states of the ENIC/NARIC Network – https://www.enic-naric.net and is a tool used for sharing information, simplifying and improving recognition procedures.

Through a similar project were introduced previously in a database diplomas from 15 countries certifying over 3,000 qualifications: Belarus, Belgium – Flemish Community, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain.

CNRED will collaborate, in this project, with specialized directorates of the Ministry of National Education and Scientific Research and higher education institutions in Romania to facilitate the recognition abroad of our graduates diplomas and thus promoting the Romanian Higher Education.
