ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education)

Who are we?

ENQA promotes European cooperation in the field of quality assurance in higher education and disseminates information and expertise among its members and towards stakeholders in order to develop and share good practice and to foster the European dimension of quality assurance.

Why we are participating in the project

ENQA will focus on the quality assurance of microcredentials. QA is regarded as the most important aspect within the Bologna Process, as the other key commitments are based on a good QA system that leads to trust among EHEA countries. ENQA, as stakeholder in the Bologna Process, has a lot of experience in European projects, producing policy papers, writing reports, and creating QA processes etc.

Our role in the project

ENQA is a partner in the project MICROBOL. Its main responsibilities include:

  • Participating in the International Steering Committee
  • Preparing the Kick-Off conference in collaboration with the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training
