International partnerships are high on university leadership groups’ agendas. Internationalised universities have a large number of international partners and cooperate on a broad range of activities. Quality assurance and management of these partnerships present a challenge.

On December, 8th 2016 international partnerships are the central theme of the conference titled “Do we dare to talk about inefficient partnerships? Towards a data-based policy for better partnership management” The first part of the conference will focus on practical oriented workshops on data gathering, reusability and quality. During the sessions different perspectives on partnerships will be presented and the eQuATIC tool will officially be launched.
