This event is based on the WG Implementation - Concept note: Reversed peer review.

Quality assurance is a key structural reform in the EHEA as it has been expressed in the recent Yerevan Communiqué. As indicated on the The European Higher Education Area in 2015: Bologna Process Implementation Report quality assurance and its implementation have many different dimensions and are characterized by a large diversity.

The reversed peer review is designed to give an opportunity to all participating countries to:

  1. Open a dialogue on policy "learning" and share experience on implementation of the Bologna policy and related instruments in specific contexts.
  2. Employ reversed peer review as a tool to support knowledge transfer.
  3. Identify best practices to come up with recommendations to tackle specific challenges in implementation.
