DEV 1.1.2 Programme Countries’ Good Practices

The EU partners have made the collection and performed the analysis of good practices in the field of students’ mobility. Experience on mobility programs within TUHH, POLIMI, and AAU has been studied, as well as practices of other HEIs in corresponding countries and, where possible, in other EU HEIs. All the three partners provided information on their profiles, basic organizational units, study programs and research focus, as well as the lists of their exchange programs and the good practice examples. In TUHH’s contribution it is emphasized that Institute of Business Logistics and General Management, as a part of TUHH, carries on application-oriented research and teaching in the areas of logistics, supply chain management, business management and IT technologies, all aimed at developing scientifically founded and practically realizable concepts through interdisciplinary research cooperation, as well as through intense collaboration and networking with manufacturing enterprises and service providers. AAU stressed the importance of its Project Based Learning (PBL) pedagogical model, which became both nationally and internationally recognised by universities, researchers and students as an advanced and efficient learning model. This learning model provides students with the possibility of acquiring knowledge and skills independently and at a high academic level, working analytically and according to interdisciplinary and problem and result oriented methods, cooperating with the business community on the solution of authentic professional problems, developing their abilities within teamwork, and becoming well prepared for the labour market. POLIMI signifies the focus of its teaching and research on the quality and innovation, as well as the efforts on developing a fruitful relationship with business and productive world by means of experimental research and technological transfer. Research has always been linked to didactics and is a priority commitment which has allowed POLIMI to achieve high quality results at an international level as to join the university to the business world. Knowing the world in which the one is going to work is a vital requirement for training students. By referring back to the needs of the industrial world and public administration, research is facilitated in following new paths and dealing with the need for constant and rapid innovation.
