Project Steering Committee members, project management, and 1-2 responsible staff from the member institutions (totalling around 50 persons) will convene regionally in two workshops to work on the IC / PM vision, mission and strategies.
In these events, participants will agree on joint initiatives (including the Regional Cooperation Network in Higher Education), joint project proposals for EU funding, strategies for international cooperation, potential joint programmes regionally and internationally, facilitation of mutual recognition of credits, new partnerships, innovative and best practices in internationalization of higher education and project management, and so on.
The workshops will be moderated by one regional and one international expert. The moderators will also coordinate writing of the agreed documents.
Part of the process will also be an agreed communication and visibility strategy. The strategy will be approved by the rectors of all member institutions.
