EQANIE adopts European Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria for informatics programmes



On July 2nd, the Board of the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE e.V.) adopted European Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria for informatics programmes and established it as an official basis for the accreditation of informatics programmes in Europe.


A test version of the framework standards and accreditation criteria had already been developed during the course of the Euro-Inf Project (2006-2008), a joint project co-funded by the EC, involving CEPIS and other relevant stakeholders in informatics education in Europe.  


The adopted document represents an official and improved version of the Euro-Inf Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria for Informatics Programmes. The new document is created in such a way as to be open to cultural diversity in Europe in the design and delivery of informatics degree programmes and intends to enhance further quality standards of informatics teaching in the EU higher education system.
