"From Data to Policy - Linking Quality Assurance and Recognition"

Conference for the Bologna working structures on QA and recognition

The conference “From Data to Policy-Linking Quality Assurance and Recognition” 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, who will discuss the state of play of databases in higher education, the creation of interoperability between databases, the integration of DEQAR in recognition workflows and possibilities of using and merging DEQAR data for policymaking at national and European level.

The conference will take place on 6 and 7 December 2021 (online) and will further enable and support peer learning and facilitate the exchange of experiences among policy makers, stakeholders and researchers as well as explore good practices in the use of the database e.g. recognition of degrees, issuing of digital credentials, cross border QA, internationalisation, cooperation and partnerships etc.

More information on the programme and how to register for the conference will follow soon.

Selected authors will be invited to present their work at the conference.
