(The role of the organisation in the project. )
For several years UNIVAQ has considered international cooperation fundamental for its development and set up a centralised International Project Office to support academic staff in answering calls for proposals within EU and international programs, managing administrative and financial issues in projects and disseminating results and achievements. We have implemented several international projects in the fields of education, research and cooperation (LLP, Joint and multiple degrees, EMMC, Erasmus Mundus ECW, EMA2, ESF, Italy-France double degree and joint PhD, EC-Canada, Marie Curie, FWs, Life, Foreign Affairs cooperation, 12 TEMPUS, 8 Interreg IIIA,B,C, 1 Interreg IVC, 1 EC-Canada, governmental bilateral programs). We will share our expertise in the Bologna process and in EMI (our faculties organize lectures in English within the international degrees)(WP1, 2 and 4); and will contribute actively to quality assurance (WP6) and management of the project (WP9).
