About the event
ENQA and EQAR organise a meeting of ministry and QA agency representatives with responsibility for higher education in the Western Balkans to foster the implementation in the region of the Bologna Process key commitment of having a quality assurance system in compliance with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the EHEA (the ESG). Ministry and QA agency representatives of Slovenia and Croatia are also invited, due to the shared characteristics of quality assurance and higher education systems and their experience in supporting national QA agencies to reach ESG compliance.
The meeting will be held on 8-9 March 2023 in Brussels, Belgium. It aims to promote the importance of the ESG as a shared European commitment and discuss the conditions needed to achieve this. Special attention will be given to discussing the role of the legislative framework to support this. Furthermore, the meeting hopes to build bridges and stimulate the sharing of experiences between quality assurance and higher education systems in the wider region. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the kick-off meeting of the SEQA-ESG2 project.

Please note that this is an invitation-only event open to representatives of the ministry and QA agencies from the participating countries.
