DEQAR has been conceived and developed by EQAR since 2017 to enhance the transparency and accessibility of quality assurance results. The database has been welcomed at the Paris Communiqué, where the EHEA signatories agreed to promote this online tool. The DEQAR CONNECT project is the next phase in the development and usage of the database.


  • The content of the database will be expanded to EHEA countries that are currently not covered. Agencies for quality assurance will be supported and counseled in linking up with DEQAR.
  • Submitting data to DEQAR will be made more efficient for all participating agencies.
  • The project strives to improve connectivity by exploring new opportunities to use DEQAR data. For example, it will be investigated how the data can be integrated in the workflow of credential evaluation and used for the Europass Accreditation Database.
