EU network of national academic recognition information centres
network is the EU network of national academic recognition information
centres. It includes NARIC centres of the EU member states and associated countries.
Normally each NARIC centre is at the same time an ENIC centre, but NARICs also have their
specific EU-related functions regarding recognition of qualifications and study credit
points within the SOCRATES programme and most of them also serve as contact points
providing information regarding the professional recognition under EU directives, see
NARIC home page.
ENIC and NARIC networks actively
respond to the new developments. In recent years recognition networks have established
several working parties, which have addressed specific recognition issues and prepared
supplementary documents to Lisbon convention.
