Abstract
The presentation will sketch a possible scenario for quality assurance and/or accreditation mechanisms with a European dimension, guided by the need to set up for Europe a system that: capitalises on demonstrated reasons for trust and confidence across borders; caters for the diversity of systems, institutions and disciplines; and avoids overloading institutions with an additional layer of bureaucracy. In the confusion of often contradictory starting points, definitions and proposals, the presentation will endeavour to outline the main features of a QA/accreditation system suited for Europe, while paying special attention to aspects with specific relevance for Eurashe member institutions.
