Erasmus Cluster Meeting 'Transferability and exploitation of project results', 19-20 November 2012

Erasmus Cluster MeetingThe 5th Erasmus Thematic Cluster Meeting gathered 60 Erasmus leaders from centralised projects, relevant key experts, EACEA and EC officials. The meeting highlighted good practices in transmitting project findings to their target audience and to the wider education community. The cluster looked at evidence-based conclusions from practices used in the field of accreditation, recognition, transferability, mainstreaming and strategies for the sustainability of results. The presentations and the workshop conclusions provide an overview of the challenges encountered by the participants and the proposed solutions.

Jean Monnet Cluster Meeting 'Trends and Developments in European Studies', 7-8 February 2013

Jean Monnet Cluster MeetingSince the Jean Monnet Programme started in 1989, European studies have spread all over the world. External factors and EU internal developments and challenges have implied adaptations of the curricula, target groups, methodological approaches and the interdisciplinary character responding to the growing interdependency of study areas. 30 Jean Monnet Chair holders discussed these issues to identify current and future trends and challenges in European studies. Their presentations and the meeting outcomes are available on the Agency website.

Erasmus Mundus Clusters

Erasmus Mundus cluster meeting on regional cooperation with AsiaErasmus Mundus projects develop considerable expertise and good practice throughout their lifetime. A series of five Clusters were funded by the programme to bring project representatives together with other stakeholders: they drew on their experience to channel it into findings and useful guidelines for higher education players tackling sustainability, employability, recognition, regional cooperation (Asia) and climate change. Results of the first four are on line: the fifth will follow soon.

Tempus study on HR management

Tempus CoverHow are human resources managed in universities outside the EU?

The Tempus programme promotes the modernisation of higher education in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Southern Mediterranean, by financing cooperation projects with EU partners. The latest Tempus study, focused on human resource management in higher education institutions in these countries, aims to raise awareness of problems related to recruitment, career management and working conditions, and makes recommendations on how to tackle these issues. The results of the study are being discussed in stakeholder seminars organised in each Tempus region in 2012 and 2013.
