Abstract
The STAND project aims to improve the processes and mechanisms of university autonomy by increasing the management capacities, accountability and transparency of universities in the Western Balkans in three target countries – Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro.

STAND is steered by a consortium of 17 partners, including EUA, and led by International Business College Mitrovica (IBC-M), Kosovo.

As a project partner, EUA offers support to enable the consortium to develop adequate assessment reports and prepare for action plans. The Association will also provide training and guidance for the use of a revised Autonomy Scorecard methodology to partners from Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro. It will drive the work to adapt the existing methodology and support the consortium in organising data collection and analysis. EUA will contribute throughout the project, with a view to ensure coherence in the approach and ultimately support strengthening university autonomy in the three countries.
