In 2010 the organisations that form the E4 Group, notably ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education), ESU (European Students Union), EUA (European University Association), and EURASHE
(European Association of Institutions in Higher Education) launched the "Mapping the Implementation and Application of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (MAP-ESG)" project in order to gather information on how the ESG have been implemented and applied in the 47 Bologna signatory countries in higher education institutions and in quality assurance institutions, and to launch a thorough discussion on the ESG in their entirety.
Para ello, se encargo a la ENQA, en cooperacion con la EUA, EURASHE
y ESIB (4), desarrollar un conjunto consensuado de criterios, procedimientos y directrices para la garantia de la calidad.
They asked ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education), in cooperation with EUA (European University Association), EURASHE
(European Association of Institutions in Higher Education) and ESIB (European Student Information Bureau) (E4 Group), to develop the practical aspects of the Register and report back through the Bologna Follow-up Group.
