Innovation, inclusion and equality of opportunities, sustainability and digitalisation characterize the current discussion around internationalisation. They also play a key role in the way in which funding instruments are organised in the sphere of educational cooperation. Follow us to the South and take part in the annual higher education event in Lugano!


What are the factors that determine the success of an internationalisation strategy and which activities should be supported as a matter of priority? Why is the involvement of a whole institution and its connection with both the local and global context of fundamental importance for an inclusive internationalisation? How can innovative technologies facilitate international networking and cooperation and in what way does digitalisation influence future mobility and cooperation programmes? 

On the first day of our annual event, attention will centre on these and other topical subjects around national, European and worldwide mobility and cooperation in the field of education. Together with international speakers and national stakeholders, these aspects will be examined from different perspectives. The day will conclude with a networking event. 

On the second day, the focus will be on the range of programmes offered by Movetia. Along with specific information about calls for projects, the potential for development possibilities will, in particular, be worked out: What should educational mobility and cooperation look like in the future? Which activities enrich the education system and contribute to its development? How can funding schemes better incorporate the socio-economic and cultural realities of students and staff?
