EQAF 2017 call for contributions is now open

28 March 2017

The 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), hosted by the University of Latvia, will take place in Riga, Latvia, on 23-25 November 2017. The Forum organisers, ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, are seeking proposals for papers and workshops from quality assurance practitioners from higher education institutions and QA agencies, students, and researchers in the field.

Under the title “Responsible QA – committing to impact”, this year’s Forum will focus on the need for quality assurance, whether aiming at accountability or enhancement, to be carried out in a transparent and responsible manner. EQAF 2017 will explore how this can be done in practice, examining issues such as communication, ethics, and the concept of change in quality assurance. During the Forum, paper sessions and workshops will provide space for more detailed discussions about research, policy initiatives, and practical case examples related to current developments in quality assurance. Selected contributions will also receive one reduced fee for attending the Forum. For more information about the call, please consult the EQAF website. The deadline to submit contributions is 24 July 2017.
