In the framework of the cooperation with the CMI/World Bank, UNIMED participates as one of the partners, to the Sixth MENA Regional Tertiary Education Conference that takes place on June 15-16, 2017 at the premises of the Center for Mediterranean Integration in Marseille on the followin topic: “Towards Competitiveness and Equity in Tertiary Education in the MENA Region Collaboration for Good Governance, Sustainable Financing and Internationalization”.
These conferences were initiated after consultations with governments in the region, resulting in the development of the University Governance Screening Card (UGSC) which has been successfully implemented on a variety of tertiary education institutions in 8 MENA countries, and on the establishing of a collaborative network of universities supported by key international partners and governments. Successive meetings have been organized in Cairo (2011), Rabat (2012), Tunis (2014), Beirut (2015) and Algiers (2016) demonstrating the increased interest on this collaborative agenda in the region.
This year’s conference will bring together key officers from governments, heads of tertiary education agencies, representatives from international partner organizations, regional experts, and a selected number of the members of the MENA Higher Education Governance and Management Network.
