HUNGARY: Quality on the conference agenda
The conference was supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission and co-organised by the E4 group: the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), the European Students Union (ESU), the European University Association (EUA) and the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE).
The event was intended to examine and discuss trends and schemes designed to measure and reflect the quality of courses and study programmes and ask whether recent developments had led to an increase in levels of quality in higher education.
"Europe, like most other regions of the world, has the legitimate ambition to strengthen its higher education institutions, which are seen as central to the development of the knowledge society," the EUA said in a statement. "This aspiration has a wide range of implications, particularly for quality assurance."
