At the end of the one-year project STiME (State Grants and Loans as a Means to Increase Outgoing Mobility), ACA and Deutsches Studentenwerk (DSW) will present to you key findings in the project through a free webinar scheduled to take place on 17 December (Tuesday).
Without surprise, not all the 31 European countries studied in the project allow their grant and loan holders to take the national funds with them for studying abroad. Those that allow the students to do so may or may not track their students in the way that enable data collection for cross-country comparisons neither. Nevertheless, statistics provided by countries, in particular the Nordic countries, that offer fully portable grants and loans and that have been tracking the whereabouts of their students have provided us with valuable indications of how such portable funds may contribute to (outgoing) student mobility.
In the webinar, key researchers in the project team (Danja Oste of DSW; Bernd Wächter and Queenie Lam of ACA) will present you the hard-won data collected and highlight visible trends and patterns observed in the project. Following that an external advisor of the project (Ulrich Teichler, INCHER-Kassel) will comment on the results and the potential implication of the study. Participants of the webinar will have the chance to raise questions after the presentations.
To be the first ones to know the project results and join an interactive discussion with the researchers, please register as soon as possible. Places in the “chat room” are filling up fast.
