Abstract : Improving European education and training system quality has been set as a key target in Europe-s strategy to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy by 2020 European Commission 2010. These objectives are more specifically defined in the so called Modernisation Agenda European Commission 2011. More specifically it sets a goal to improve the quality and relevance of higher education. In this process external evaluation and self-assessment are seen in a key role! In the CDIO approach the 12 CDIO standards provide a framework for continuous improvement. Each institution-institutional department are encouraged to regularly do the self-evaluation using the CDIO Standards. Eight European universities identified a need for further enhancement of the self-evaluations and creation of processes with peers to reduce the inertia of heavy accreditations-evaluations in HEIs. In September 2014 these universities started an Erasmus+ project QAEMarketPlace4HEI aiming at 1 Developing a collaborative, comprehensive and accessible evaluation process model, methods and tools for HEIs to complement the accreditation systems; 2 Promoting, increasing and exploiting further the European collaboration in the evaluation processes and the exchange of best practices; 3 Disseminating the model, best practices and widen the cooperation to new HEIs in Europe through the partner networks.
