MARCO POLO: an opportunity for a mutual learning

The objective of WP3 is to foster international cooperation in T/L/R, and show the benefits of opening HEIs to international experineces in these essential aspects of the lives of HEIs.

Seminars of WP3

Within the framework of WP3 two different kinds of seminars have been implemented during the months of August and September in the universities of all SEA partners of the project. In this occasion the thematises of the seminars were: "Seminar 3.2 Raising Standards in T/L through international cooperation & 3.3 "Boosting Research Capacities through International Cooperation”. The seminars were conducted by EU experts from HWU, FHJ and US (professors and staff) and the feedback obtained was very positive, some of the participants also pointed out the high level of the speakers and the useful knowledge that they gained.

Some partners took also the opportunity to organise other activities related to the project as UM did, holding the 1st National Roundtable in Malaysia, that could count on with the presence of a US expert.
