How can quality assurance (QA) ensure transparent and responsible action? The 12th EQAF explored current developments in research, policy and practice from across Europe that tackle the need for QA to meet the needs of a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.
QA, whether aiming at accountability or enhancement, needs to be carried out in a transparent and responsible manner. This means finding ways of responding to the needs and interests of internal and external stakeholders. The 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) explored how this can be done in practice, examining issues such as communication, ethics and the concept of change in QA.

The 2017 EQAF, organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE, took place on 23-25 November 2017, hosted by the University of Latvia in Riga, Latvia.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the Forum, entitled ‘Responsible QA: committing to impact’, combined practice-oriented or research-based discussions in the paper sessions and workshops with presentations of current developments in quality assurance. The Forum provided an opportunity for participants to update their knowledge and extend their professional development.
