The TACTIC project (Through Academic Cooperation Towards Innovative Capacity) is focused on the training and building up the capacity of management and governance in order to improve the higher education sector in Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia so that it can face the new challenges brought about by globalization and the knowledge society and also improve the services and procedures in line with the high EU standards.
The general objective of this project is to contribute to the modernization and reform of the management system within HEIs in three Asian countries and to strengthen the competencies of top and middle managers of these institutions. More specifically, the project aims at introducing Information Management Systems (IMS), upskilling human resource (HR) and financial management staff and facilitating administration and student enrolment processes. Likewise, the project aims to introduce Change management and to establish adviser offices as an approach to change management through a strategy that addresses the unique challenges of each particular institution. Moreover, the aim is not only to increase higher education quality and accountability, but also to close the gap with developed and emerging countries. One of the main outcomes of the project is to map the best practices of the European HEIs and to prepare recommendations and guidelines for all Higher Education Institutions in Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia.
The TACTIC project methodology is then based on collaborative working environment between partners and aims to provide guidance on how to approach the problems in order to consistently deliver successful results. For this purpose, regular meetings and trainings will take place throughout the course of this project.

While they do not share a border, Mongolia is separated from Kazakhstan by only 36.76 kilometres. At 1,564,116 square kilometres (603,909 sq mi), Mongolia is the 19th largest and one of the most sparsely populated independent countries in the world, with a population of around 3 million people. Approximately 30% of the population are nomadic or semi-nomadic; horse culture is still integral. The majority of its population are Buddhists. Mongolia conducted its own peaceful democratic revolution in early 1990. This led to a multi- party system, a new constitution of 1992, and transition to a market economy. Mongolia’s political system is a parliamentary republic.
Economic activity in Mongolia has traditionally been based on herding and agriculture, although development of extensive mineral deposits of copper, coal, molybdenum, tin, tungsten, and gold have emerged as a driver of industrial production.
