MAReN Project

The project MAReN– Mediterranean Automatic Recognition Network is co-funded by Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

Its main aim is to foster automatic recognition of qualifications in the Mediterranean region, starting with the partner countries by:

Developing tools to implement the automatic recognition of academic qualifications and qualifications giving access to higher education in partner countries

Enhancing cooperation among ENIC-NARIC centres, competent authorities for recognition of qualifications and HEIs in partner countries and in the other countries of the Mediterranean region

Establishing the MAReN secretariat at the University of Federico II in Naples to facilitate the cooperation among partner countries and to guarantee the sustainability of the project after its lifetime

Supporting synergies on existing databases and tools aimed at fostering automatic recognition: Q-ENTRY and FraudSCAN

Main outcomes

  • Table of comparison of Pre-Bologna and Bologna qualifications (academic and giving access to higher education ones) in partner countries
  • Match your qualifications: tool to compare the national qualifications and their correspondence with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and the National Qualifications Framework of the countries of the Mediterranean area
