Internationalisation has long been seen as an elitist, mobility-focused activity. Nowadays, we want new ecosystems that incorporate a broader variety of activities and stakeholders. But how can this dream be achieved and what are the necessary elements? To answer these questions, this interactive session will present research and practical examples from the UK, Finland and the Netherlands.
