On 9 and 10 May EQ-Arts experienced its own site visit as a part of the EQAR registration procedure. ECA coordinated the review and the review team is currently writing its report on EQ-Arts. We gratefully thank all the representants of the reviewed institutions, peer review experts and stakeholders who travelled to Amsterdam for an interview.

At the recent Cumulus Conference in Paris, EQ-Arts and Cumulus signed a Memorandum of Understanding. This memorandum underpins the existing mutual drive to further collaborate and cooperate in supporting Art & Design institutions in the self-evaluation and enhancement of their internal quality systems.

AQ Austria and EQ-Arts awarded UfG Linz with the certification for its internal quality management system as a result of a joint audit of the two agencies. On 13 November Rector Univ.-Prof. Dr. Kannonier received the certification from Univ.-Prof. Dr. Anke Hanft.
