    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    The purpose of the paper is to compare the views of quality assurance in Finnish and Greek universities. Furthermore, the paper aims at providing insights what do academics see as quality and what role does ‘excellence’ have on quality assurance. The data were collected by questionnaires in both countries. The results suggest that Finnish and Greek academics have different views on quality assurance. In Finland the respondents had a clearer picture about the role of quality assurance than their counterparts in Greece. In both countries, however, quality was rarely associated with ‘excellence’.
