Save the date – Towards comprehensive mobility approaches – 8 Sep 2021

How to make international student mobility more inclusive? How to reduce the carbon footprint of physical mobility and create greener options? How to develop good-quality, digitally-enhanced models, that complement existing formats?

These questions, and many alike, have been driving the key developments and innovations in the area of international student mobility for the past years. They are also at the heart of most recent strategic documents at EU level, from the European Education Area Communication, to the upcoming European Strategy for Universities, and not least, of the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme.

These reflections though, while essential, are often discussed separately from each other, although higher education institutions will need to develop more comprehensive and strategic approaches to student mobility, combining established and new models, for more internal and external impact, in order to deliver on these broader objectives.

Through this event – Towards comprehensive mobility approaches: marrying the inclusion, sustainability and the digital agendas – we’ll start connecting the dots, together with the speakers from the European Commission, internationalisation funding agencies (ACA members), networks and higher education institutions. We will investigate the potential tensions between these objectives, put forward constructive ideas and explore paths for how to deliver on the vision of international student mobility that is more inclusive, sustainable and digitally enhanced – all at once.

The event’s programme will be available over the summer, and registrations will open in mid-August on the ACA website. Make sure to mark 8 September 2021, 09:30 – 12:30 CET into your calendars.

The event is co-organised by ACA, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills, VLUHR International and the

Czech National Agency for International Education and Research – Czech Liaison Office for Education and Research in Brussels (DZS-CZELO).
