RUN-EU is an established network of seven like-minded and regionally focused HEIs committed to societal transformation in its regions in the context of both new and emerging regional and global challenges but in particular sustainable regional development. To achieve this collective mission, the network focuses on the delivery of collaborative, future and advanced skills-based teaching, learning, research and engagement activities across the network. Its mission is supported, inter alia, through the development of Short Advanced Programmes and European Degrees as well as European Mobility Innovation Centre, which will build and share expertise in innovative physical and virtual mobility initiatives and will assess the quality of new mobility activities. All this supposes and requires the recognition of all forms of learning activities and outcomes obtained at any of the HEIs within the network. Nevertheless, recognition practices are varied within the network and are based on different national legal frameworks and/or institutional practices, which makes the recognition process challenging. Therefore, the presentation focuses on the lessons learnt so far from the RUN-EU network regarding the recognition practices.
