The aim of the ORION project is to create a more differentiated recognition model, which makes use of new tools such as learning outcomes and qualifications frameworks, leaving behind a homogeneous system with a strong focus on measurable input factors.
The objective is to establish an up-to-date recognition practice that complies with the recommendations in both the Subsidiary Text to the Lisbon Convention on the use of qualifications frameworks in recognition and the European Area of Recognition Manual (the EAR Manual), as well as the suggestions made by the Pathfinder Group and the recommendations in the Yerevan Communiqué.
The Project will run from October 2016 until October 2018.
The Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research coordinates the project. The ORION project is managed by NOKUT. Experts from UHR (Sweden), The Danish Agency for Science and Education (Denmark), University of Oslo (Norway) and Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (Norway) participate in the project. The project is led by NOKUT.
