Every year, each new group of EuroAquae participants is offered a website where activities and products could be presented. The following list of websites gathers all the activities carried out since 2004.
EUROAQUAE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION (EAAA) was founded in February 2006 in order to create a wide network of EUROAQUAE students and graduates, share experience and provide mutual help withinEUROAQUAE community.

EMA - Association for all students and graduates of Erasmus Mundus Master and Doctoral Programmes
Over 15 000 bright international students took part in the Erasmus Mundus programme already. Almost 9000 of them are members of our Association!
We offer an international professional and personal network for Erasmus Mundus students and graduates. Our members can join our professional networks and service teams to network and become active within the Association. Jobs board and special enterpreneurship section are offered to our members.
EMA members are ambassadors of the Erasmus Mundus. We share the idea of international education and spread the message around the world. Since its foundation EMA members have initiated or taken part in over 150 fairs, information seminars and promotional activites worldwide, using the promotional materials of EMA.
EMA serves as channel of communication for students, alumni, universities and the European Commission.We have established a Course Quality Advisory Board to respond to the suggestions of the students.
Through our Programme Representatives and Country Representatives EMA enables the potential Erasmus Mundus applicants to get in touch with the current students and graduates to receive a piece of advice and recommendations based on the experience of previous generations.
A Curriculum and Management Board* has been defined for validation of coherency of the curriculum, improvement of content of the modules, coordination of program, standardisation of ICT support and mutual recognition within the consortium as well as for solving academic and administrative issues about students and teachers affairs from outside Europe.
On the board, each university member of the consortium is represented by one member (designated as contact person for the project) or deputy-representative.
The board is supplemented by two external advisors who are also in charge of quality assurance evaluation and adequacy analysis between the master course and the demands: one from academia and one from the Hydro-Informatics profession.
Moreover, the participants elect two representatives as members of the board.
The aims of the internal evaluation of Euro-Aquae Quality Assurance by the External Experts are the general quality assessment and the verification if all procedures and tasks of the Program are respected. This is done through measurement of the degree of satisfaction by all stakeholders of Euro-Aquae. In particular, Quality Assurance will be directed towards the evaluation of the quality of the programme of Euro-Aquae as the fulfilment of the "expectations" of the stakeholders. A detailed approach for each considered item will be described in reports by External Experts.
The stakeholders of Euro-Aquae, for the purpose of this Quality Assurance, are:
* the Students
* the Teaching Staff
* the Contractors: the partner-universities
* the End-Users: present and potential future employers of the students and other Academia.
Furthermore, Euro-Aquae takes part in the project of the European Network for Quality Assurance in Higher Education - ENQA / TEEPII
