EQAF 2017 early-bird deadline approaching

21 September 2017

Register by 9 October 2017 to benefit from the early-bird registration fee for the 12th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF). After this date, late registration fees will apply. However, you are encouraged to register as soon as possible as capacity is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

EQAF 2017 will take place in Riga on 23-25 November, hosted by the University of Latvia. A number of plenary and parallel plenary speakers have now been announced and you can explore the topics to be covered in the latest programme. Further speakers, as well as details of paper sessions and workshops will be available later this month. You can also stay up to date with the latest news by following @EQAF on Twitter and the hashtag #EQAF to contribute to the discussions during the event.

Under the heading ‘Responsible QA – committing to impact’, the Forum will focus on the need for quality assurance (QA), whether aiming at accountability or enhancement, to be carried out in a transparent and responsible manner. This means finding ways of responding to the needs and interests of internal and external stakeholders. EQAF 2017 will explore how this can be done in practice, examining issues such as communication, ethics and the concept of change in QA.

Further information about the Forum, as well as details on how to register, can be found on the EQAF website.
