By adding an international dimension to the project the tool will be developed as an international system to evaluate the partners and to be evaluated by the partners in return.

Through the creation of eQuATIC as an online peer assessment tool, reports can be generated about partners and about an institution’s functioning as seen by partners, which then can form the base for quality improvement measures in international cooperation within the institution.

During the development in the Flemish project, Flemish institutions will invite partners as test users. By including international test users, the tool will not only be developed as an international peer assessment mechanism, it also ensures that the result is applicable to a wide variety of institutions. Once the project is finished, the tool will be made available to all interested institutions or organisations.
