The Board of Directors of INQAAHE presents this call for proposals to host INQAAHE Forum 2026 and seeks expressions of interest from member agencies.
The INQAAHE Forum is a biennial gathering of quality assurance professionals from around the world to discuss emerging issues and best practice in tertiary education quality assurance. The event offers an enhancement platform for QA professionals and HE policymakers and other key stakeholders through interactive exchange modalities amongst practitioners and experts. The Forum features a 2-day event around ongoing and emerging quality-related issues delivered through interactive learning sessions and networking events. The Forum starts with a series of workshops aimed at professional development of quality assurance and tertiary education staff and decision-makers. It also includes a dedicated meeting with regional networks of quality assurance and tertiary education institutions from all over the world as well as the INQAAHE General Assembly meeting.
