About the project
|EuNIT is a European project that aims, over 3 years (2016-2019), to increase international activity in Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in the Southern Mediterranean region. This project involves 16 partners and 6 associated partners from Croatia, France, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya and Spain and has been co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme for the amount of 1 million euros.|
1) Training of 24 university staff to develop European project design and management units
For this purpose, the EuNIT project will train a selected team of 24 staff from 8 partner universities in Jordan, Libya and Lebanon and equip them with necessary skills and resources to run EU project design and management units within their institutions. Also, this will help gather a regional pool of trainers who can deliver local training adapted to the needs of HEIs in the South Mediterranean region.
2) Develop online course on European project management
The EuNIT project will develop innovative tools such as online courses (MOOCS) open to everyone interested in European project management and make it accessible through e-learning platforms. The MOOCs will be based on the training for trainers sessions specifically designed to fit the needs of South Mediterranean countries.
3) Creation of a regional network of HEIs
To support the participation of South Mediterranean HEIs in European projects, the EuNIT project plans to set up a regional network of HEIs in order to gather and exchange good practices and experience in project design and management, but also to train a greater number of staff.
As a result, HEIs in the countries concerned should become more independent in designing and managing EU projects, being able to increase the amount of project applications they submit, and targeting more closely their needs in terms of developing and modernising their HEI. To this effect, HEIs in the South Mediterranean region will be able to develop sustainable international partnerships.
