The primary aim of MID is to enhance institutional capacity of Partner Universities to understand the standards and demands of international educational cooperation and to reinforce the functions and policies that develop structured international activities in academic institutions. The management capacity is developed through:
  • Developing know-how, sharing good practices on mobility and mobility administration, creating transparent, democratic and open administration processes that enhance mutual responsibility and accountability in the decision-making processes, and developing the joint decision making capacity
  • Improving transparency and recognition of studies and qualifications, in particular by favouring the practical implementation of Common Areas of Higher education triggered by the interest in the instruments of the Bologna process.
  • For the participating institutions, in particular, the results of MID will include:
  • Support for institutional development;
  • Intensified interaction of institutions;
  • Increased capacity for international cooperation;
  • Improved management.
MID aims at breaking the isolation of third-country HEIs and providing connectivity and cooperation with European countries. The development of joint educational projects and research projects promotes exchange of experience in educational methods and practices. The grantees in all target groups become accustomed to different teaching technologies and learning environments, thus acquire increased learning skills. In addition, organising individual mobilities enhances multilateral cooperation in university administration, which helps disseminate the outcomes in a sustainable way.
This includes development of mobility administration and utilising ECTS, in particular. The aim is also to develop recognition of studies and qualifications, especially in those third-country universities not already using ECTS in full scale.
