TACTIC – Through Academic Cooperation Towards Innovative Capacity
Project number: 61653-EPP-1-2015-CZ-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP
Running time: 15 October 2015 - 14 October 2018
Project's website: www.tactic.muni.cz
The project Through Academic Cooperation Towards Innovative Capacity (TACTIC) is aimed at developing the capacities of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia to modernize the universities’ management, and improve the services and procedures in line with the advanced EU standards.
This objective will be achieved by
- Mapping the best practices in Europe, and preparing recommendations and guidelines for the South East Asian (SEA) partners.
- Mentoring the Human Resources, Financial Departments and Student Support staff focusing on middle and top management
- Introducing the Management Information System to support the implementation of new practices
- Establishing advisory offices, and promoting capacity building and staff training activities
- Performing in-depth analysis of the current situation followed by reviews and further recommendations of the participating EU partners
The project will raise awareness and understanding of the target-area policies and practices at national and institutional levels, and disseminate through various presentations, events, and trainings throughout the course of this project.
In addition, TACTIC will provide a framework for upgrading management practices and policies, and assist with applying the established know-how and proven models to other less advanced HEI in the South East Asia region.

The TIGRIS Project (Transfer of Good practices & Reinforcement of Internationalisation Strategies in Kurdistan) is a three-year Erasmus + Capacity building initiative that supports the modernisation, accessibility, and internationalisation of higher education in Kurdistan.
The TIGRIS Project, which will run for 3 years from 2017–2020, is coordinated by the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany. The project consortium is composed of 4 European partners (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium, Masaryk University in Czech Republic, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen in Netherlands and Global Impact Institute Prague in Czech Republic) and 10 Kurdish partners, including the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MHESR), as well as 2 associate partners.
The ErasmusJobs project aims to bridge the skills gap and enhance the transition from education to the labour market. Building on the core principle that a mobility experience reduces long-term unemployment, the project aims to clearly identify the skills gained during a stay abroad and make those more understandable by employers. In order to achieve that, ErasmusJobs brings together many stakeholders to ensure a future of employable Erasmus+ alumni.
The project is a collaborative cross-European partnership between ESN, Masaryk University, Leo-Net, Universidad de Alcala, European Institute for Industrial Leadership, Université de Mons, European University Foundation, Università degli Studi di Roma "Tor Vergata", and Expertise in Labour Mobility B.V.
The EDUC (European Digital UniverCity) consortium is one of 17 consortiums made up in total of 114 tertiary institutions which were successful in the first round of the prestigious European Commission competition for the so-called “European University”. The members of the EDUC consortium are Masaryk University and the universities of Rennes I, Paris-Nanterre, Potsdam, Cagliari and Pécs. The aim of the EDUC alliance is to cooperate intensively especially in the areas of various types of teaching (e-learning, blended learning, Collaborative Online International Learning – COIL, …) and in the areas of teacher and student exchanges (including students with special needs).
