    Earlier this month, the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education held an exchange of views on the European Commission’s proposal for the next EU Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport, entitled “Erasmus for All”, that will run from 2014 to 2020.

    Over the last two weeks, the European Commission has announced an €8.1 billion package for the final calls for proposals under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7). It has also published a consultation on plans for a public/private partnership in life sciences research under Horizon 2020 and a new report on education and disability/special needs. Meanwhile, the European Council said it had concluded negotiations on the future EU unitary patent system.

    Registrations are now open for the 7th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), entitled ‘How does quality assurance make a difference?’, which will take place from 22 to 24 November 2012 at Tallinn University in Estonia.

    35 representatives of the quality assurance agencies of the Andean Community and the rectors’ conferences of the region met in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, from 28 to 29 June to launch a joint quality assurance pilot project, one of three sub-regional initiatives of the ALFA PUENTES project.

    The final dissemination conference of the Erasmus Mundus-supported project ‘Europe-Africa Quality Connect’ was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the capital of the African Union, from 21 to 22 June. Presenting the project results to 80 African vice-chancellors, quality assurance agencies and local NGOs, the event presented a series of conclusions and recommendations on how to take forward an institutional evaluation programme in Africa, similar to that of the EUA’s Institutional Evaluation Programme (IEP), on which the pilot project was based.
