Abstract
When in 2007 European ministers of higher education charged the E4 Group (ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE) with the task to establish EQAR, they asked for an external evaluation of the Register after two years of operation. This was coordinated by a Steering Group working under the auspices of the US Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The evaluation was carried out by an independent panel, including European and non-European quality assurance and higher education experts. The Expert Panel's report was submitted to EQAR in September 2011. It is based on a Self-Evaluation Report produced by EQAR and a site visit, during which the Panel interviewed numerous European governments and stakeholders. The main findings and recommendations set out in the Expert Panel's report will be presented in the session. On that basis, participants will be invited to exchange views on the future role and development of EQAR in the European Higher Education Area.
