Workshop 02

An advanced approach to effective implementation and sustainability of Joint Programmes

For the past two decades, Joint Programmes (JP) have been one of the main ways for higher education institutions (HEI) to build strategic partnerships, facilitate global competences among graduates, increase an HEI’s attractiveness, and enhance cooperation between partner HEIs with complementary research strengths. This workshop will analyse how a consortium can efficiently and effectively implement JPs while ensuring their sustainability and impact. We will investigate how to add extra value to JPs at an institutional, programme, staff and student level. We will also look at them from an employers’ point of view. The expert presenters will draw on good practice, concrete tools and relevant sources of funding.
