The European Network for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) was established in 2000 to promote European cooperation in the field of quality assurance (QA) in higher education. In 2004, it was changed into the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, but its acronym remained the same (ENQA).
ENQA is a membership association having as members 47 quality assurance organisations from EHEA member states that operate in the field of higher education. ENQA membership criteria are identical with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG).
ENQA disseminates information on experience, good practice and new developments in the field of quality assessment and quality assurance in higher education to stakeholders, namely to public authorities, higher education institutions, students and quality assurance agencies. It represents its members at the European level and internationally as well as organises events, conducts projects and issues publications on current quality assurance themes.
ENQA's goals are to:
- encourage and develop the exchange of information and experience on quality assurance;
- function as a policy forum, developing and proposing standards, procedures and guidelines for quality assurance fulfil requests for expertise and advice from European Ministers of Education, public authorities and other bodies associated with the EHEA;
- facilitate quality assurance activities in the area of transnational higher education and of e-learning;
- promote the development and implementation of effective peer-review systems for quality assurance and accreditation agencies.
