EASPA Members have signed the Düsseldorf Declaration addressed at the Conference of European Ministers of Education for their Conference in Bucharest in April 2012.

In the Declaration, EASPA pledges to support the Ministers in their joint political goal to complete the European Higher Education Area by 2020 through:

  • creating European quality standards for other appropriate disciplines and professions;
  • further developing the existing criteria and standards based on learning outcomes for the award of subject-specific accreditation certificates or European quality labels;
  • acknowledging the significance of European quality labels complementary to national evaluation and accreditation for the assurance of quality in the European Higher Education Area and for the mobility of holders of academic qualifications;
  • calling upon the governments of Bologna signatory states to facilitate the recognition of the European Quality Labels by the relevant national authorities.
