The Pilot Phase (2014-2016)

A working group was established in 2014 for launching the Pilot Phase of the QR project, whose members are: Francesco Lo Piccolo, Maros Finka, Anna Geppert and Kristina Nilsson.

AESOP members participated to the pilot phase on a voluntary base. Good geographic distribution was ensured, with the involvement of AESOP national representatives. Applications of about twenty universities (for a total of 26 programmes), covering most of the geographical areas (namely Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Chec. Rep., Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, UK), were delivered.

The assessment ended in 2016 (see List of AESOP QR Certificates 2016-2022)
