Professional Summary Description: I have been professionally engaged in the field of external as well as internal quality assurance/accreditation for almost 15 years. After serving as Managing director of the Universities in the State of Lower Saxony/Germany and working for the rectorate of the University of Stuttgart, I became the Managing director of the German Accreditation Agency for Study Programs in Engineering, Informatics, Natural Sciences and Mathematics (ASIIN) in 2001, which has since then been engaged in the field of programme accreditation (with almost 4000 study programs under Review) as well as institutional accreditation (experience in the area of institutional QA was greatly enhanced by a 8 month professional experience as Audit director of the Australian Universities Quality Agency in Melbourne in 2011) as well as experts for institutional reviews in other parts of the world. As CEO of ASIIN Consult since 2007 I also have been engaged in numerous consultancy projects in practically all parts of the world, designing and executing manifold workshops/conferences in IQA/EQA, leading trainings of HE/QA staff in QA matters and organization development, while also executing professional development seminars of peers/experts in review procedures. As regards the APQN area, I was the responsible trainer of a recent 3-year training course for 11 QA/Accreditation agencies (assembled in AQAN) of the ASEAN Region in a European-Asian Project between 2010-2013. During the past couple of years I have assumed the chair/presidency of numerous higher education/QA Networks internationally, being the current president of the Central and Eastern European Quality Assurance Network (CEENQA) as well as the President of the European Alliance of Subject Specific and Professional Accreditation (EASPA). I also served as the President of the European Network for the Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE).In the past four years I served as one of the directors of INQAAHE. Throughout my prefessional career I have been engaged as consultant/project coordinator in European Union projects, for the German Academic Exchange Council (DAAD), the OECD and UNESCO as well as other institutions.
