Project Title

Designing and managing international relations, educational projects and mobility schemes in Asian Universities ( TOOLKIT )

Objectives

Most notably, the project revolves around a series of more specific objectives, such as:
(1) The tailoring of innovative, transparent, and inclusive internationalization strategies by Asian universities, characterized by a strong emphasis on students and faculty members as the real protagonists and catalysts behind an effective modernization of local HES;
(2) The structuring of a process of ‘cascade trainings’ targeted at Asian IROs, which will be firstly ignited through a series of formation activities in the EU, and then disseminated on a national and regional level by reaching out to the more peripheral and less-internationalized universities. In doing so, three main dimensions will acquire a particular relevance, namely:
the drafting and realization of IR strategies;
the design and management of educational projects;
the design and management of mobility schemes;
(3) The consolidation of a diffuse and long-lasting engagement towards HE internationalization strategies in the three counties involved, capable of encompassing not only the academic community, but also local policymakers, economic stakeholders, and civil society;
(4) The establishment and nurturing of a network of European and Asian universities, so to share knowledge and good practices, while supporting the effective integration of the higher education systems of Myanmar, Laos, and Sri Lanka within a regional and global framework.
