Expected results and outcomes
ACADEMICA is expected to bring long-term benefits as well. It is expected to develop a transnational co-operation system among universities and organizations from member countries and countries neighbouring the EU (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan) in terms of:
- curricula reform;
- scientific cooperation;
- knowledge transfer;
- exchange of best practices.
It will facilitate the generation of data value chains through various projects, research, and innovations.
The impact and the benefits of ACADEMICA would go beyond its lifetime through delivering sustainable outcomes. The Project is expected to increase the accessibility to Higher Education in Central Asia (especially Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) and the quality of teaching and learning through an integration of contemporary ICT-based pedagogical approaches and tools into the university curricula.
It would improve the academic capacity building with regard to the development of lifelong learning transversal and key competences as recommended by the new strategic framework for cooperation in education and training (ET2020) and “New Skills for New Job” initiative.
The modernisation of the university curricula in compliance with the European educational standards would move the third-level education in the Partner countries closer to the European educational space.
