UNICATION aims to improve the skills and abilities of International Offices (IO) teams in third countries and promote international cooperation between higher education institutions (HEIs) in Asia and Europe, as well as among Asian HEIs themselves.
This KA2 Erasmus+ project is an example of International Relations Técnico Lisboa
commitment to internationalization and cooperation with higher education institutions from around the world. Natacha Moniz
and Ana Pipio
will lead this project from Técnico Lisboa/University of Lisbon
and believe that it will make a significant contribution to improving the quality of international partnerships and projects, as well as promoting cultural understanding between different parts of the world.
As we gear up for this truly international project, we've delved into the intricate needs of HEIs through literature review, data analysis, and insightful consultations. Our focus now shifts to fine-tuning these needs and integrating survey results into a robust Training Plan. In the initial project phase, we're facilitating focus group discussions to precisely understand development areas and needs. This approach, tried and tested in previous projects like the Ethiopian Agricultural Parks assessment led by Óbuda in 2022, ensures a targeted and effective training material. Tailored questions, organized interviews, and detailed analysis pave the way for a comprehensive summary report shared with institutions and stakeholders. Stay tuned as we integrate identified needs into practical training and mentoring, leveraging the expertise of Óbuda University throughout this exciting journey!
