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.
WILLIAM is a three-year Erasmus + Capacity building initiative for Internalization at Home. Co-funded by the EU Commission, WILLIAM works to foster an international climate for home students, alongside strategies to create an international campus with a supportive and welcoming environment for international students studying in Israel.
We draw on the knowledge of experts from the Global Impact Institute, Masaryk University, Erasmus Student Network, University of Pula, MCI Innsbruck, Hebrew & Ben-Gurion Universities, College of Management, College of Technology, Tel-Hai, Kinneret & Gordon Colleges.
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).
The EDUcardS strategic partnership in higher education is presented by the EDUC alliance, which is
constituted of five Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) from four countries: The Czech Republic,
France, Germany and Italy.
The objective is to set up, in the mobility space that the EDUC alliance
offers, the European Student Card (ESC) and to test a methodological framework for its deployment
during an experimental phase, to identify any potential difficulty and to come up with solutions to
overcome potential problems. Beyond its implementation in an alliance with a total of 160,000
students, the use of the ESC will be evaluated, experienced and will encompass the provision of
several related services such as access to libraries, restaurants, housing and public transport
provided by university cities.
ENACT is a three-year Erasmus+ capacity building initiative aiming at enhancing governance and management in Sri Lankan Universities, as the country plans to make comprehensive reforms in higher education. Co-funded by the EU Commission, this project focuses mainly on non-academic staff members and it aims at developing their quality, skills and expertise thanks sharing practices from European universities, as the non-academic staff is essential for ensuring the smooth and efficient functioning of the teaching and learning process.

- to share best practices between EU and Sri Lankan Universities in the area of governance and management
- to upgrade and fully integrate the system and operations with the universities to meet the modern higher education standards
- to enhance the knowledge, skills and attitudes of the non-academic staff as well as soft skills
- to serve as a flagship initiative, providing recommendations for actions applicable to the national higher education system and inspiring other universities to
- to put in place institutional strategies and support structures enabling a long-term commitment to the training and professional development of non-academic staff.
