Quality assurance

The objective of the High Council for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (Hcéres) and the Commission des titres d’ingénieur (CTI) is to improve the French system for quality assurance in higher education, using the European framework (European Standard & Guidelines, ESG) as a basis. While respecting the prerogatives entrusted by law to each evaluation body, the CTI and Hcéres wish to improve their efficiency while simplifying the work of the institutions. This is the objective of the cooperation framework agreement signed on 23 September 2016.
