Publication in the Official Journal of the Government of Catalonia (DOGC) of the new legislation dealing with AQU Catalunya (the AQU Catalunya Act)

The AQU Catalunya Act, passed by the Catalan Parliament on 8 July in the form of Act 15/2015, 21 July, on the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency/AQU Catalunya, has been officially published in the Official Journal of the Government of Catalonia (DOGC), dated 23 July 2015.

The Act strengthens and reinforces AQU Catalunya as the main instrument for the promotion and assurance of quality in the Catalan higher education system with functions that are upgraded and up-to-date, a more flexible structure and better compliance with European standards as regards its independent nature as an agency. It also places the international sphere of its activities on a firmer footing and establishes a system for the appointment of the Agency’s director by way of an open and competitive process, amongst other things.
