The Guidelines for the Development, Accreditation and Implementation of Joint Programmes in the Republic of Croatia are among the outcomes of the project Removing Obstacles for Cross-border Cooperation (ROCCO) which was developed by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, also involving the Agency for Science and Higher Education. The Guidelines have been created by the Working Group for drafting regulations on joint programmes and cross-border cooperation in higher education.

The Guidelines provide higher education institutions with basic information and advice on the development, accreditation and delivery of joint programmes. They also provide an overview of the current status of cross-border cooperation in higher education with a focus on joint programmes, explain the reasons for establishing joint programmes and, by using a SWOT analysis, present challenges and opportunities emerging from them. Furthermore, the Guidelines also describe the steps preceding the accreditation of a joint programme, the initial accreditation procedure and the subsequent programme implementation.
