1. Introduction This report is based upon the evaluations of ten higher education institutions in Montenegro. The evaluations took place in the framework of the project “Higher Education and Research for Innovation and Competitiveness” (HERIC), implemented by the government of Montenegro with the overall objective to strengthen the quality and relevance of higher education and research in Montenegro. The evaluations were carried out by the Institutional Evaluation Programme (IEP), an independent service of the European University Association (EUA). IEP is a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and is listed in the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR). Each institution was assessed by an independent IEP team, using the IEP methodology as described in the Annex. Table 1 provides a brief overview of the participating institutions, including the city in which they are located. Table 1: The 10 institutions
