    This month’s European Quality Assurance Forum for Higher Education will bring together nearly 500 higher education stakeholders (from around 50 countries) working in quality, including higher education institutions, students, quality assurance agencies, governments and intergovernmental organisations as well as researchers in higher education.

    The European Commission has published its 2011 annual work programme, the document in which the European executive’s priorities are set by policy area. For higher education, planned initiatives include the revision of the so-called Modernisation Agenda.

    EUA has published a series of recommendations for improving doctoral education in Europe, aimed at universities as well as governments and funding agencies. The EUA ‘Salzburg II Recommendations’ are the result of a wide consultation with the 185 members of EUA’s Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE), and were adopted by EUA’ s governing Council at the beginning of its Annual Conference in Palermo.

    In its meeting on 21 October, 2010, EUA Council adopted a revised policy document for EUA on quality and quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area. As the quality of higher education continues to be of high importance to the development of European universities, it was felt that EUA needed to strengthen and clarify its position in this regard.
