As a result of their cooperation agreement ECA and APQN have started a staff exchange project between the two networks. This new project encourages the quality assurance agencies of both networks to exchange staff members with the purpose of peer learning. The member agencies of both networks are invited to act as host and sending agencies for exchange visits of minimum 1 week. Each staff member having participated in the exchange will receive a jointly issued APQN/ECA certificate after submitting a short evaluation report. This exchange underpins the importance of building stronger relations in QA in HE between the Asia-Pacific and European regions.
