The European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), an annual event co-organised by EUA, ENQA, EURASHE and ESU, is the European conference on quality assurance in higher education that brings together all of the key stakeholders in the field – higher education institutions, quality assurance agencies and students. This event is considered a major contribution to QA in higher education, and a flagship activity in this field.
EQAF has been organised since 2006 and gained increasing popularity over the years. It provides a unique platform for the higher education and QA communities to follow, shape and anticipate developments in the area. The main purpose of the event is to foster a dialogue on quality assurance that bridges national and organisational boundaries and leads to a truly European discussion on QA in higher education (notably through the Bologna Process higher education reforms), thus creating a common European understanding of QA.
