Seminar for EMMC coordinators (FPA 2004 – 2006)

EACEA, Monday, 27 May 2013

The one-day seminar provided an opportunity to meet and discuss the findings of the 57 final Framework Partnership Agreements reports submitted by Erasmus Mundus Master Courses (EMMCs) from the 2004, 2005 and 2006 generations.
The seminar also discussed the FPA Synthesis Report (a comparative summary of the FPA final reports), which looks at three key aspects with particular relevance for the future of joint programmes such as:

  1. The extent to which these EMMCs were able to achieve jointness and, more generally, their contribution to the Bologna process
  2. The extent to which they contributed to enhancing the employability of their graduates
  3. The sustainability prospects of these courses after the end of the Erasmus Mundus funding

Joint international Master programmes: lessons learnt from Erasmus Mundus – the first generation
