Call for Proposals for posters & research papers
In the framework of the DEQAR CONNECT project, we invite scholars, practitioners and students to submit research proposals that draw on DEQAR data.
The aim is to offer policymakers knowledge that will support better informed approaches in higher education and enrich the understanding about the dynamic and vivid higher educational landscape in the EHEA.
Selected authors will be invited to present their work in a poster or paper session at the DEQAR CONNECT Conference for the Bologna working structures on QA and recognition “From Data to Policy – Linking Quality Assurance and Recognition”.
This event will gather representatives of ministries of education, quality assurance agencies, ENIC-NARICs and experts on higher educational policies from across the European Higher Educational Area.
Delve into DEQAR, explore, analyse and submit your proposal by 1 October 2021!
EUniQ Final Conference
Another event that is not to be missed is the "EUniQ Online Dissemination Conference" on 27 September, 13.00 – 16.00 CEST.
The event, with as subtitle: ‘Quality Assurance of European Universities: Framework and Implementation’ is open for all who are interested and participation is free. The event is especially targeted towards the representatives of quality assurance agencies, university networks, national ministries responsible for higher education and European stakeholder organisations.
The EUniQ project has worked over the past two years on the development of a European approach for comprehensive Quality Assurance of European Universities.
