EQAF registration and call for contributions

29 June 2017

Registration is now open for the 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), which will take place on 23-25 November 2017 in Riga, hosted by the University of Latvia.

Under the title ‘Responsible QA – committing to impact’, the Forum will focus on the need for quality assurance (QA), whether aiming at accountability or enhancement, 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. EQAF 2017 will explore how this can be done in practice, examining issues such as communication, ethics and the concept of change in QA.

The deadline for the early-bird registration fee is 9 October 2017. 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. To register, please visit the EQAF website. Here you will find a preliminary programme and further information about the Forum. You can also stay up to date with the latest news by following @EQAF on Twitter.

The organisers are also seeking your input to the programme. If you would like to discuss your own research, policy initiatives and practical case examples at the Forum by presenting a paper or organising a workshop, you can submit a proposal until 24 July 2017. Full details of the call for contributions and submission forms are available on the Forum website. Contributions that are selected for EQAF will receive one reduced fee for attending the Forum. A selection of papers will also be published after the Forum in cooperation with the Journal of the European Higher Education Area.
