Structured vs. Unstructured Mobility

International Staff Week on Joint Programmes
Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, 15-17 March 2017

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) is pleased to receive applications for the International Staff Week on Joint Programmes “Structured vs. Unstructured Mobility”.

These three-day training sessions will deal with different forms of “structured mobility” such as Joint Degrees (Erasmus Mundus), Double Degrees and other Certificate Programs. The speakers are expert administrators, academics and policy-makers in the field. They will introduce the attendees to the different models of structured  mobility, the advantages of each of them and the challenges they pose. An emphasis will be placed on the dissemination and exchange of good practices. During the meeting the representatives of the different universities will be able to present the joint/double degrees offered at their home institution, and to contact other possible partners for future adventures.

Confirmed speakers include:
  • Mireia Fabrega (Project Adviser from Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency)
