Project description


REALISE “Realising the potential of the international mobility of staff in higher education” is a three-year European Strategic Partnership project that aims to improve the implementation and recognition of staff mobility in order to maximise its impact on both individuals and institutions.

To this end, the project pursues 3 SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES:

1-Identify and develop innovative practices regarding the implementation of the Erasmus+ programme for staff mobility

2-Foster the recognition of mobility in the career development of academic, administrative and technical staff in HEIs

3-Raise institutional awareness about the added value of staff mobility and promote its contribution to HEIs’ internationalization strategies

10 universities from 10 countries are involved in the project:

    Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier, France (Coordinating institution)
    Linköping University, Sweden
    Uniwersytet Warszawski, Poland
    Middlesex University, United Kingdom
    Universitat de Barcelona, Spain
    Universidade de Coimbra, Portugal
    Universiteit Gent, Belgium
    Univerza v Ljubljani, Slovenia
    Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin, Germany
    Universita degli Studi di Catania, Italy

The 10 universities (and their associated partners) will work together over a three-year period (2016-2019) to deliver constructive outputs:

- A set of survey tools to assess mobility practices in a number of European countries

- A comparative quantitative and qualitative analysis of staff mobility across Europe

- A Handbook for improved implementation of the Erasmus+ programme for staff mobility

- A Training module on how to improve staff mobility activities in European HEIs

- The conclusions of the national / European policy dialogue aimed to make innovative recommendations

The project expects the partners’ practices in the implementation and management of the Erasmus+ programme for staff mobility to be durably improved, especially the recognition and promotion of mobility in professional development, and innovative recommendations to be made to a wider range of European HEIs.
