ACA has a dual identity, being both an influential think tank – exploring and researching multiple facets of internationalisation in higher education – as well as a strong member-driven association.
As a member-driven platform, ACA provides a shared voice to national agencies for the internationalisation of higher education (many of them also Erasmus+ national agencies), being a unique type of organisation in the world. Within ACA, the members enhance their capacities and join forces in supporting, ‘doing’ and influencing the development of future-oriented, top-quality internationalisation. As a brain-trust, with a sound track record in conducting applied research and providing – through its active members, as well as its very knowledgeable and well-linked Secretariat – ACA provides expert advice on key developments in international higher education to HEIs, governments and supra-national organisations.
