Polish universities able to apply for Government funding for ACEEU accreditation

ACEEU has been placed on the list of international accreditation agencies within initiative started by Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The initiative is called "Foreign accreditations" and is under measure 3.3 Internationalization of Polish higher education. For that purpose, the Polish government earmarked sizeable funds (20 922 529.00 PLN, including the contribution of the European Social Fund 17 633 507.44 PLN) to allow higher education institutions (HEIs) from different areas to apply for funding to cover their accreditation costs and thus boost their international competitiveness.

All Polish HEIs representing all areas of education, regardless of the ownership status of the HEI (both public and private) can be part of this program. The project supports the accreditation of individual universities as well as groups of universities. A catalog of eligible foreign accreditations is available on the Ministry website.

Submission of applications under the "Foreign accreditation" project is carried out exclusively using the dedicated tool at akredytacje.nauka.gov.pl

The call for proposals is carried out on a rolling basis, until all funds are exhausted. However, the project implementation deadline is within frame of 01.05.2016 - 31.12.2020.
