On Wednesday June 16th, 2021, the ANTENA project - Internationalization of Higher Education at the Philippines Network  held the III Online Conference entitled International Accreditation, an event organized by the University of Alicante in coordination with EFMD. The conference was given by Dr. Christophe Terrasse, Director EFMD International Projects, with his extensive experience in the subject offered to all participants a substantial “Menu” of knowledge.

Key concepts such as certifications, accreditations, benchmarks and label were fully explained, as well as the implications for their implementation. Another concern presented was the choice between the Institutional accreditation or the Program accreditation, since it is normally an issue that causes confusion among Institutions at the time of deciding their accreditation.

The Conference was interactive, there were two time slots to answer questions, listen to comments and end with advice and tips on the matter. The topics of the last two conferences, International Virtual Mobility (given by Marina Casals, International Center Director, Universitat Rovira i Virgili - Spain) and International Accrediation have been proposed by the project partners and in line with the objectives to be developed during the implementation of the ANTENA project.

The Conference was attended by representatives of all Philippine HEIs partners: ADMU, DLSU, BSU, MSU-IIT, CLSU, XU, USC, SLU, UP, PUP, Commission on Higher Education - CHED and the three European partners (UA, EFMD and UM).

The continuity of this series of conferences, conceived with the objective of present topics of interest to the partners within the framework of the project, as well as to open a space to share good practices and enriching experiences of the consortium, will continue until the International mobility allows us to carry out training workshops in face-to-face mode.
