The seminar on the European dimension of quality assurance took place in Brussels at the University Foundation on 3-4 November 2016. The seminar aimed to gather new staff of QA agencies or those who were interested in learning more about the context of quality assurance at the European level.
The programme informed participants about relevant topics such as the Bologna Process, the European Commission’s priorities concerning quality assurance and higher education, the role of the main stakeholder bodies (including the E4 and EQAR) in the European Higher Education Area, and the purpose of the Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG). Participation was open to ENQA members, affiliates, and other interested stakeholders.
