It was incepted in accordance with the guidelines set forth in Research and Education Programme of SCCA Network.

The very first reaction was that there is a need for an analysis, a developmental projection and proposals for a value model that would improve relations between the processes of higher education in art history and the career of the practicing art historian of today. Further on, all of these demands were subject to subsequent restriction - in terms of regional, cultural and political particularities pertaining to the so-called societies in transition from Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe.
