In 2010, five years after the adoption of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the EHEA (ESG) by the European Ministers of Education in Bergen (2005), in cooperation with the other partners of the E4-Group, ENQA, ESU and EUA, EURASHE accepted the mandate from the Ministers of the European Higher Education Area to examine the awareness, implementation and usefulness of the ESG in view of a possible revision of the ESG.
The E4-Group responded by running a project, ‘Mapping the Implementation and Application of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (MAP-ESG project)’, and presented a joint report of the MAP-ESG project at the Ministerial meeting in Bucharest in April 2012.
As we had completed an extensive consultation amongst members and stakeholders for the MAP-ESG project, which had delivered substantial input and which had only partly fed into the joint E4 report, EURASHE proposed to publish a report of its own, focusing on the results and recommendations affecting professional higher education.
Participants of the QA Seminar in Nicosia received a copy of EURASHE’s Report on the Implementation of the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education Institutions.
This report is now officially published for the QA Seminar, and is also available here.
