brief description 1
Brief description: (1)
  • The project idea was generated by two main factors: the coordinator’s long-term cooperation with the European universities and the cooperation with several universities in Lot 3. The European partners want to establish mobility with the region and feel the same necessity as Lund: the need of a more systemic and institution-based approach to mobility at all levels.
  • Important features of the EM ECW are that the programme opens up for mutual exchange and for individuals who have already finished a level of education and want to complete their education in Europe.
  • Additionally, including group 3 individuals fit very well with the university and national policies of most of the EU partners.
