Outputs from the EUNIS Student Mobility SIG workshop

We share the outputs from the EUNIS Student Mobility SIG pre-Congress workshop “Progress Made and Challenges to Beat” here.

The workshop featured a variety of initiatives and projects that aim to establish the optimal international exchange of study and student information. The speakers and delegates from HEIs shared their views and updates on challenges being met.

The workshop objectives were:
– to inform participants about the status and results of the various projects
– to clarify how HEI’s can engage and benefit from the available infrastructure and tools
– to better understand and promote the benefits of standardisation and digitisation
– to discuss technical and organisational challenges.
