The President of HAHE, Professor Pericles A. Mitkas, represented the Authority at the European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) 2023, which took place in Aveiro, Portugal, from 23 to 25 November 2023, and was hosted by the University of Aveiro. This year's forum was entitled "Internationalisation in a changing world. New trends and challenges for quality assurance" and provided an opportunity to discuss the possibilities, challenges, and best practices for quality assurance in an increasingly internationalised context.
The EQAF is an annual landmark event in quality assurance and is organised every November by EUA (European University Association), ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education), ESU (European Students' Union) and EURASHE (European Association of Higher Education Institutions). This year's conference was attended by over 450 participants from the higher education quality assurance community from Europe and beyond.
