Following the success of previous forums, the fourth European Quality Assurance Forum was co-organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE and supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission. It was hosted by the Copenhagen Business School (Copenhagen, Denmark) on 19 – 21, November 2009.

Goals and Objectives
The main goal of this event was to provide a discussion forum centred on how current internal and external quality assurance approaches take account of institutional diversity and support creativity in higher education.

Through plenary and parallel sessions, the discussion framed these issues in the context of the ongoing construction of the European Higher Education Area.

Specifically, the forum was of interest to rectors and vice-rectors responsible for QA, QA officers in higher education institutions, students, QA agency staff, employers and researchers working on higher education or the QA field.
