The HRK/Quality Management Project organised its traditional “Autumn Conference” that was held in the Beethovenhalle in Bonn.

This year, the conference dealt with questions linked to the outcomes of Quality Assurance methods in terms of leadership and management. Furthermore, the question of how they can be useful in the equilibrium of university autonomy and public/state responsibility for Higher Education is going to be discussed.

The conference brought together more than 200 participants from HEIs, quality assurance agencies, scientific organisations and ministries from Germany and other countries. ENQA members, affiliates and associates were welcome to attend the event. The conference languages were German and English.
