ANECA authorized to award the Euro-Inf Label
The Spanish national accreditation agency ANECA was authorized to award the Euro-Inf Quality label for Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.
The following agencies are authorised to award the Euro-Inf Quality Label:
ANECA - National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain
ASIIN - Accreditation Agency for Degree Programmes in Engineering, Informatics, the Natural Sciences and Mathematics e.V., Germany
BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT, UK
Degree programmes seeking an accreditation from the above organisations, may apply for the award of the Euro-Inf Quality Label within their regular accreditation procedure.
All other HEIs should contact EQANIE directly.
An Agency that is being reviewed by the EQANIE for authorisation may be given the status of Candidate Agency, provided that the submitted application appears to comply with the EQANIE requirements.
There are currently no agencies with candiate status.
Since 2010, EQANIE accepts applications from accreditation agencies for authorisation to award the Euro-Inf Label on behalf of EQANIE in the context of accreditation procedures at national level.
Eligible to apply for authorisation are agencies from countries within the European Higher Education Area that accredit informatics degree programmes.
A precondition for application is that an already functioning national accreditation system is in place which is in conformity with the Euro-Inf Framework Standards and Accreditation Criteria for Informatics Programmes.
More information on how to apply for authorisation is available in the Standards and Guidelines for agencies applying for authorisation to award the “Euro-Inf Bachelor” and “Euro-Inf Master” quality labels.
If you represent an assessment/accreditation body interested in requesting authorisation, please contact Jana Möhren at moehren[at]eqanie[dot]eu.
