Save the date: Members Seminar and Training in Paris

As we genuinely believe that Paris in December is simply marvellous, we cordially invite you to the ECA Seminar which can be combined with the training “Assessing the Quality of Internationalisation”. This time the seminar will put focus on the internationalisation of QA Agencies and the relationship between quality and internationalisation.

The event will take place from 18 to 20 December 2023 at the HCERES, Higher Council for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education, 2 rue Albert Einstein, 75013 Paris, France with the following general agenda:

  • 18 December 2023: ECA Seminar, 10 am – 17 pm (followed by social programme and dinner),
  • 19-20 December 2023: Assessing the Quality of Internationalisation training (starting around 11 am).


Internationalisation is a complex phenomenon and is strongly influenced by the context in which it takes places. As a multidimensional concept, the realisation of internationalisation widely varies in different higher education settings. This means the context and the varied ways in which it is operationalised need to be taken into account when assessing internationalisation. This also means that members of the panel undertaking the assessment are specifically trained for the assessment of internationalisation. 

This training suitably prepares participants for the assessment of the quality of internationalisation in the framework of the ECA Certificate for Quality in Internationalisation (CeQuInt). It includes the contextual approach of internationalisation, the use of audit techniques and the interpretation and substantiation of assessment criteria. Self-evaluation reports and the Framework for the Assessment of Quality in Internationalisation are used to highlight different interpretations of (the use of) standards and underlying substantiations. 


You may register for just the seminar, just the training, or both.

Registration is required by 5th of December 2023 through writing an e‐mail with your name and organisation to
