The combination of special expertise and complementary strengths of each partner will be jointly integrated in all project activities which will be implemented through 5 work packages - Management, Dissemination, Mapping of internationalization, Introducing innovative mobility activities and Quality control and monitoring. The main objectives of the project are two-fold: to create a set of indicators for quality assurance in internationalization of higher education institutions and to introduce innovative student mobility by exposing master students to interdisciplinary scientific conferences, thereby increasing the employability of graduates through a higher level of intercultural and interdisciplinary competences. The project will support and strengthen the institutional capacity of the University and its recent efforts for internationalization, having an important impact at local, national and regional level by promoting the best sectorial scientific results and know-how.
Enhancement of the quality of education and research will lead to overall promotion of partners involved and consequently to broader university visibility. Sustainability of the project results is guaranteed by the fact that all outputs and outcomes of the project are built and verified in the regional environment and they serve in the continual process of institutional development as unified and levered tool for progress assessment. As partners are members of CASEE network, the results of the CASEE-ln project will be presented and proposed to other members in order to implement it at their institutions.
