Why is it needed?
Cooperation with non-EU countries enhances the quality of education and training in the VESTYN and beyond by promoting peer-to-peer learning and comparison with education systems worldwide.
It boosts innovation and job creation through mobility, and offers opportunities for staff and students to broaden their horizons through participation in EU programmes. European universities have a positive record of internationalization; they have facilitated the development of international curricula and joint degrees, fostered international research and innovation projects, and supported the exchange of students, staff, and knowledge.
