The EuroRail ticket prize that FESC offered to a student who took part in the student survey came as a Christmas present. The student had the occasion to visit several European destinations during the Christmas break and feel the festive spirit of the different places. Even though we cannot see a face at the picture, we were ensured that the smile and the eyes are full of this unforgettable experience!
The first FESC study visit for 2020 and third for the project took place in Groningen at Hanzehogeschool Groningen. The visiting partners were EUF and the University of Warsaw. Different International Department Coordinators participated in the discussion on what competencies should the staff members dealing with student mobility should have. Moreover, the FESC team met the Vice-President of the University who is responsible for the global Internationalisation strategy.
The Ghent University welcomed the partners EUF and Hanzehogeschool Groningen for the second planned study visit of FESC. This time we were able to gather feedback on the staff competences from the Head of International Relations Office, International policy advisors, Erasmus+ Institutional coordinators and numerous Erasmus+ Faculty coordinators. Moreover, the study in Ghent involved the important viewpoint of the Recruitment office whose Head took part in it.
In November 2019 the projct partner University of Warsaw finalised the report of the FESC surveys on Erasmus+ staff competences. More than 2240 students participating in student mobility programmes took part in the survey and over 250 staff members involved in the administration of mobility programmes. The results showing a significant interest in the project can be found in the final report here.
The pilot study visit took place at the University of Marburg on the 11th-12th of November 2019. This first visit gave a good start of the 6 visits planned within the scope of the project. Each one of them will be organised in different geographical locations - Ghent, Groningen, Riga, Warsaw and Saint Petersburg. Their aim is to test, improve and validate the framework of Erasmus+ staff competences (IO3).
Last summer, the FESC project consortium conducted a survey for students participating in student mobility programmes, to identify the key competences of staff members involved in the administration of mobility programmes.

The participants had the chance to win a prize - a Eurail Pass to travel around Europe! The winner was randomly selected and informed about the prize on 15th of October 2015.
At the Kick-Off for Strategic Partnerships & Networking Event with German project partners in Bonn Christina Bohle from the Philipps-Universität Marburg presented the FESC project. The meeting was organised between the 15th and 16th of October by the German National Agency for higher education, DAAD.
Her poster presentation shows the methologies of the project, informs about previous dissemination events and lists the goals of the "Framework for Erasmus Staff Competences".
Throughout the past 30 years, internationalisation has become a fundamental element of each HEIs’ strategy, leading to increased staff and student mobility. As a result, the daily work required to conduct quality mobility is ever more complex and challenges of the future like digitalisation and more global mobility require future-proof skills development.
