Topics for Peer Review
Important topics of the partner institutions
The topic(s) tackled in a Peer Review is always defined by the institution who asks for a Peer Review.
There can be one or two topics. They should be important to the institution.
For suggestions how to "find" suitable topics, please consult the European Peer Review Manual, pp. 12f.
Look into the Manual here
You can also pick one or two of the Quality Areas as topics.

Common topics for partnerships
It is recommended that partnerships find topics of common interest for their European Peer Review partnership.
This way, the European cooperation will not only enrich the Peer Review but also promote exchange of practices and further work on the topic(s) that is/are reviewed.
So try to find institutions in Europe who want to do a Peer Review and are interested in the same topics.
Having a common topic(s) will also make it easier to get European funding. This is meant by the "double strategy" for European Peer Review partnerships: work on Peer Review + one or two topics.
Topics according to the Erasmus+ "Call for Proposals"
The next step will to align these topics with the priorities in the "Call for Proposals".
This should not be a difficulty.
Peer Review itself is well covered by the priorities. Additionally, a wide range of important aims for improvement of educaiton and training are mentioned in the call so that positioning your own topic(s) within the priorities should be possible.
EPRA will give support to its members in aligning own priorities to the Erasmus+ priorities in order to be successful when applying for funding.
This will be done through
- online meetings of members
- direct support.
