Registration is now open for the 2019 European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), which will take place on 21-23 November 2019 in Berlin, hosted by the Technische Universität Berlin.
Now in its 14th year, EQAF is the largest annual gathering of the European higher education quality assurance community. Under the heading of ‘Supporting societal engagement of higher education’, this year’s Forum will explore how external and internal quality assurance processes can support engaged higher education institutions in developing activities that meet the expectations and needs of all stakeholders and demonstrate their value to society.
The preliminary programme and practical information are now available on the EQAF website. You can stay up to date with the latest news by following @EQAF on Twitter and joining the EQAF LinkedIn Group.
There is also an opportunity to contribute more actively to the Forum by submitting a paper or a proposal for a workshop or world café discussion starter. The call for contributions is open until 22 July 2019. It is an excellent opportunity to share and discuss policy developments, new practices or recent research with colleagues from across Europe. For each selected paper or workshop, one author or facilitator will receive a reduced fee to attend the Forum. Further information is available here.
The deadline for the early-bird registration fee is 7 October 2019. After this date, late registration fees will apply. However, we encourage you to register as soon as possible as capacity is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Details of how to register can be found on the EQAF website.
There are discounts for students, check the section ‘Registration fees‘
EQAF has been co-organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE since 2006. The Forum aims to bridge national boundaries by facilitating a Europe-wide discussion on current trends and developments in research, policy and practice. EQAF provides a unique opportunity to share experiences and network with a wide range of stakeholders, including representatives from higher education institutions and quality assurance agencies, students, researchers and policy makers from across Europe and beyond.
