Building Bridges: Making sense of QA in European, national and institutional contexts

lyon_1The theme of the 2005 Forum was ‘Building Bridges: Making sense of QA in European, national and institutional contexts’. Through plenary and parallel sessions, the discussion focused on the grass roots level of quality assurance in the context of the ongoing development of the European Higher Education Area.

The 5th EQAF provided 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 was to foster a dialogue on quality assurance that bridges national boundaries and leads to a truly European discussion on QA in higher education (notably through the Bologna process higher education reforms), and to create a common European understanding of QA through a dialogue among different stakeholder groups.

The final publication of this year’s EQAF is available here.

Following are the practicalities of the event:
