Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2   2
Since the beginning of the Lifelong Learning Programme (2007-2013) placements have been
integrated into the ERASMUS Programme as a part of student mobility and have proven to
be a very successful mobility action.

ERASMUS placements can be organized and administrated by a single higher education
institution as well as through a placement consortium.

A placement consortium can be defined as a group of higher education institutions and
possibly other organisations (enterprises, associations, chambers of commerce, foundations,
etc.) working together to facilitate placements for higher education students (2011 Guide for
National Agencies implementing the Lifelong Learning Programme).

In the academic year 2009/10 84 placement consortia existed and counted for 5143
ERASMUS placements, which represents 15 % of all placements organized within the
ERASMUS Programme.

In order to illustrate and promote the work of the European consortia for ERASMUS
placements this directory was prepared by the NA DAAD as a follow-up of the first
"European Conference of Placement Consortia within the ERASMUS Programme” on 27
October 2010 in Brussels. The conference was organised by NA DAAD, in close
collaboration with the European Commission and addressed different issues concerning
ERASMUS Placement Consortia in Europe. Further information on the conference can be
found on following webpage: http://www.eu.daad.de/eu/llp/veranstaltungen/14646.html

This directory is further intended to help Placement Consortia to be able to build networks
amongst themselves and to effectively build ties with other European (Placement) networks.
It also gives the possibility to companies, NGO’s and other institutions and enterprises to get
in touch with a consortium for advertising their work placements/internships to a specific
target group.

A template was send by the NA DAAD to all existing placement consortia to be filled in by the
coordinators of the consortia to be published in this directory.

Following this, the directory represents the information given by the European consortia to
the NA DAAD. The NA DAAD cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of information
given.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.


BEP-Bureau for European Programmes is a non-profit organisation situated in Innsbruck (AT). It
serves as a contact point for European Programmes and is working in the field of European mobility
projects (LLP-Erasmus and Leonardo da Vinci placements) and in consulting of enterprises &
research institutions for projects of technology transfer (Enterprise Europe Network) and research
(FP7). We are co-operating with partners both at national and European level.
Since 1990 BEP successfully participated in COMET, LEONARDO I+II and LLP, more than 1.700
placements of different target groups could be implemented.
BEP is consortium coordinator for 8 HEIs (traditional universities and universities of applied sciences)
in Western Austria, roughly 150 ERASMUS placements are realised each year.
Within LEONARDO da Vinci BEP deals with several target groups ranging from graduates and young
employees (PLM) to students and apprentices in initial vocational training (IVT). Approx. 50-100
placements are realised each year within Leonardo. An increasing demand for Leonardo and
Erasmus placements is obvious during the last 2 years.
BEP has gained large experience with European mobility projects and their co-ordination. As a
regional contact point for LLP Erasmus SMP & Leonardo da Vinci (PLM + IVT) BEP established a
broad network with relevant institutions and partners national wide and all over Europe. BEP contacts
with chambers of commerce, universities, high schools, training institutions, small and medium
enterprises, networks, intermediaries institutions.
BEP provides free of charge information, counselling and co-ordination services for enterprises,
universities, polytechnic schools, students, graduates and young employees. BEP provides
information and give advice about potential placements in Europe, as well as offers support to
applicants who are looking for a placement and assists them with the organisation and preparation of
their stay abroad.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.


Leader of the consortium is FH Aachen with 9.500 students, 220 teachers and 10 different
departments ( http://www.fh-aachen.de/fachbereiche.html). FH Aachen is a very international
University located in the Aachen (D) , Liège (B) and Maastricht (NL) region. Dr. Antonia Csiba is the
head of the career service and organizes student exchanges to help students to get practical
experience during their studies. Before having built up the career service she organised the former
UETP (University Enterprise Training Partnership) AAKA (Aachen-Kölner-Ausbildungspartnerschaft)
since 1992. Within this UETP she organized European Student Placement Programmes like Comett,
Leonado da Vinci I, II and today the LLP Programme (Erasmus Placement). While there were 6
different universities participating in the UETP from Aachen, Cologne, Bonn, Bochum and St.
Augustin, there are today only 3 left because of the new European policy to give every University the
chance to applicate for grants.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


In the last project the consortium consisted of 3 partner universities, FH Aachen (leader of the
project), RWTH Aachen and Hochschule Bochum. FH Aachen composes the proposal, the interim
and final reports. FH Aachen offers all important information about the programme and concerning
advertisement to every partner university by opening event, by mail and via internet. Every partner
has the possibility to contact the project leader and her assistant by phone ore by mail.
The contact persons at RWTH and Hochschule Bochum who dispose of all actual obligatory
information and documents, have the possibility to select their students by their own and send their
filled and checked applicationform to the project leader.
The project leader proves again the documents. In case that every thing is filled and signed in a
correct manner, she informs the student by mail and contract about the following procedure and pays
the advance pay of 80 %.
Normally the student who has two contact persons during the training period, one at the sending and
one at the receiving institution, doesn’t need further help by the contact persons of the consortium
except for special problems occurring. In this case the contact person of the consortium has the task
to help and support the other persons concerned.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)

before the mobility:
The students get all information about the programme by Internet http://www.fh-aachen.de/llp-
neu.html and during the advisory service. Additionally the programme and the possibility to receive a
grant is passed by lectures and posters. We inform them about language and cultural training and
they have the possibility to follow the courses of career service and career center at each university.
during the mobility:
In general they have no need of further information during the training period. Sometimes they ask us
again about the final report because they have so many impressions in the foreign country that they
have forgotten the bureaucratical details.



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                    22
after the mobility:
They send us the final documents and if they are all filled in a correct manner they receive the
second and last payment of 20 %.


b) Service offered for partner HEIs


before the mobility:
Before the new project the leader of the consortiums informs the partners via Internet, by mail and
during the opening reunion.
during the mobility:
The leader of the consortiums answers questions by mail or by phone. In case of incertitude the
leader of the consortium asks for help by DAAD.

after the mobility:
The leader of the consortium prepares for the following project and asks the partners if they are
willing to continue and under which circumstances (number of students/number of studentmonths)


c) Service offered for companies


local:
We offer a jobportal where companies can put their job offers or offers for training periods.
Furthermore we offer the possibility to companies to present their company of campus.
abroad:
For companies in whole Germany we offer as well the job portal and for foreign companies we offer
the possibility to publish their offers on the internet site of Career Service of FH Aachen e.g. :
http://www.fh-aachen.de/6383.html .

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.


The Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (JGU) is - with 35.000 students - one of the largest
universities in Germany. JGU offers degree programs in more than ninety subjects and in numerous
combinations. The range of courses is wide and covers almost all areas: humanities, social studies,
law, economics, medicine / except architecture and engineering. The integration of the Academy of
Fine Arts and the School of Music is unique in the German landscape of higher education.

JGU has strong ties to the local community and is an active member of the international academic
community. The Rhine-Main area is one of the economically most powerful regions in Germany, and
JGU actively cooperates with businesses and industries and participates in political and cultural life.
Founded in 1477, JGU is one of the oldest German universities. In its diversity of students, its global
outlook, as well as its outstanding research it is also a university of compelling change.
In 2008, JGU established an office, the EU-ServicePoint, which will be referred to as EU-SP in this
text. The EU-SP leads a consortium of five Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the Rhine-Main
area, which are mentioned, on page 1. This consortium supports students to find internships in
Europe and awards ERASMUS grants.

The EU-SP is part of the International Office of JGU. For more than 20 years the International Office
of JGU has established an expertise in administering international student exchanges. Apart from
ERASMUS exchanges the International Office of JGU has intensively cooperated with organisations
dealing with internships such as AIESEC and IAESTE or COMETT / Leonardo.
JGU disposes of a large network of ERASMUS partners, which contributes to an extensive exchange
with European partner institutions. Over the past five years JGU has always been ranked in first or
second place in Germany concerning outgoing students.

The administrative officers currently managing the EU-SP, some of them employed on part-time
contracts, are very experienced in a wide range of worldwide and EU cooperation programmes. They
have worked in a number of organisations including the DAAD and the ERASMUS Bureau / Socrates
& Youth Office in Brussels.

Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.



Management of the Consortium:
The EU-ServicePoint is responsible for the administration, application and financial support of the
student’s placement abroad and a drop-in centre for approximately 50.000 students of these five HEIs.
This service and administration office manages the cultural, linguistic and organisational preparation
for the placements. The monitoring, quality control and the evaluation of the placements belong also to
the tasks of the EU-SP as well as the financial management of the budget. The placement
coordinators in the office are responsible for the reporting (interim, final and financial report). All
activities and the cooperation between the participating five HEIs are coordinated by the EU-SP. The
creation and maintenance of the website which supports the students application and helps to provide
them with appropriate information are also a part of the responsibility and an important part of the work
of the EU-SP.
Each partner institution of the consortium is responsible for the communication with their faculties
supporting their students intending to undertake a placement abroad. The partner-institutions, and
here the International Offices, have to inform their faculties about the guidelines for the internships and
also to cooperate with the departments to ensure the recognition of the placements. The EU-SP is in
constant contact with the partners to be aware of arising difficulties and to give advice and support
where it is necessary. The EU-SP has been established to provide a good service for the students and
to assure the quality of placements. The coordinating office is not only responsible for the quality and
quantity of placements but also ensures the transparency of the award of the grants within the
ERASMUS Placement Programme. The EU-SP placement coordinators work closely together with the
ERASMUS coordinators at the various faculties and use their network and experience for the subject
related questions concerning the placements. The team of the EU-SP is responsible for the financial
budget, guidelines and contract related questions. It communicates with the department of financial
affairs in JGU, which provides the students with the stipend money. Each partner in the Consortium
has access to the closed web portal to be able to download special information and information
material whenever it is needed. On a regular basis the coordinators notify the partners of the selection
of their students.




Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)



Before the mobility:
Interested students can obtain information about internship opportunities, necessary preparatory
measures and the selection process through the web portal of the EU-SP. In close collaboration with
the International Offices of the five HEIs the team of the EU-SP offers information sessions for groups
at JGU and also, on a regular basis, at each partner-institution. Besides these presentations the EU-
SP is open for individual counselling with weekly office hours. The annual fair “Praktika welt-offen” at
JGU gives the students the opportunity to get information on internships around the globe and to
establish contact with organisations offering placements. For finding an internship abroad, the EU
ServicePoint has recently signed a partnership agreement with EUROPRACTICUM. Through this
cooperation, which started with the fair “Praktika welt-offen”, students can receive assistance in finding
a professional and appropriate placement. Additionally to these information sources, the EU-SP team
tries to connect the alumni of the programme with those searching for a placement.




Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                      28
Selection: The web portal of the EU-SP provides the students with information on how to apply and
gives them the opportunity to download all necessary forms. The documents for the application
include: the Training Agreement, a CV, a cover letter, certificates / academic records, a language
certification, a certificate of enrolment, a proof of participation in preparatory seminars and a
professional recommendation of the department.


According to the following main criteria the candidates are chosen for the grant by:

- The suitability (incl. academic performance) of the applicant
- The professional integration of the placement in the study course
- The program conformity and the requirements for the internship, including the recognition.


The EU ServicePoint organizes the preparation of the candidates in collaboration with different
partners. This involves existing knowledge and resources in several faculties at the participating 5
HEIs. So for example courses offered on intercultural competence at JGU in projects like EUROMIR,
step on!, Projekt Geist & Wirtschaft. Meanwhile the students can take part in web-based trainings on
intercultural (or cross-cultural) competence. These courses should prepare the students and enable
them to work across cultures through an instilled understanding of cultures on a general level in terms
of communication and working styles. In addition to these offers they can attend language courses for
all subject areas at their home institutions.
Practical support: The EU-SP and the International Offices of the participating universities advise
and support the candidates in the practical preparations for the stay abroad. This includes the
accommodation, insurance, issues regarding the local area and those associated with the residence
status. The candidate’s questions will be answered via the web portal of the EU-SP or directly via e-
mail. The students can also receive helpful information from returning trainees, via the internet-
platform of the DAAD ( EU-Community). Reports of alumni coming back from various EU-countries are
available on this platform.


Training content: It is essential that the students consult the supervisor of the respective area of
studies at their home institution prior to the application. They have to make sure that the content of
training/internship fits into the curriculum of their individual study course and thus ensure the required
recognition. To receive a grant from the EU-SP either ECTS-points or a Diploma Supplement are
obligatory.

During the mobility:

The support of the trainee is part of the obligations of the responsible person in the foreign
company and the subject supervisor at the home institution. By a short e-mail report in the first 4
weeks of the internship the EU ServicePoint gets initial feedback. The interns may contact the EU-SP
team at any point of the internship, especially when help is needed. This
includes “Emergency Management" in the event of serious illness or accident, but also in terms of
problems which might occur due to the unfamiliar working atmosphere and multicultural environment
of the placement companies.

After the mobility:

Recognition: The student and the subject supervisor at the home institution will have agreed upon a
possible recognition of the placement before starting the internship. The
company has the obligation to issue the student a meaningful, detailed testimony. The EU-SP then
receives these records containing either ECTS-points or a copy of the Diploma Supplement (or a letter
confirming that a DS will be issued at the end of the studies). The
introduction of the software “CampusNet” for the study and examination administration pays particular
attention to this recognition (first pilot basis at JGU).




Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                       29
Evaluation: The EU ServicePoint ensures that the student hands in an internship report via the EU-
Community portal. Reports are entered online according to the guidelines of the National Agency
DAAD. In addition the student has to deliver a brief report, which includes
both technical and socio-cultural aspects of the placement period. Referring to this data an evaluation
is possible. The centre for quality assurance at JGU has already carried out a survey, based on the
feedback and reports of the returning students in the ERASMUS
study program.

c) Service offered for companies


Local:

The Consortium is well connected with the companies in the area. JGU, for example maintained for a
long time a dialogue between universities and industry on a national and international level. The
regional situation in the Rhine-Main area and the proximity to companies such as Boehringer or
BASF offers an excellent platform for cooperation between universities and industry. The
Fachhochschule Mainz, as an active partner in the consortium, supports close links between
university and industry. Some lecturers at Fachhochschule Mainz (FH) are also entrepreneurs or hold
leading positions in companies. In the media sector there is a strong cooperation between the local
universities in Mainz and the broadcasting and media companies such as ZDF and SWR. The
University of Kaiserslautern, as a well-known university in the engineering sector, has worked for
many years with the Audi Group and the German branches of the European Aerospace companies.
Since the EU-SP is a relatively young consortium there is, for example, no web-based opportunity for
companies to offer placements via the website. The team is working on a web tool to be added to the
existing website for the mutual benefit of students and companies in Germany and abroad.

Abroad:

Although a new Consortium, as mentioned above, the office is already able to note the two years
worth of experience. Several companies contact us to receive further trainees, for example Bosch
Madrid, SEL, and some partner universities such as University of Dijon, University of Birmingham and
the University of Valencia. The aim for the near future is to stabilise the ties to the already existing
partners and to broaden the network for future partnerships. All these partners should communicate
with the consortium leader on a regular basis and have the possibility to enter the website with their
placement offers.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.

The leader of the consortium, the Fulda University of Applied Sciences was founded in 1974 as one
of the first Hessian universities of applied sciences. It covers a broad spectrum of academic and
professional education. The Departments of Applied Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and
Information Technology, Faculty of Business, Food Technology, Nursing and Health Sciences,
Nutrition, Food and Consumer Sciences, Social and Cultural Sciences and Social Work offer
numerous first-degree programmes, graduate programmes and other educational offerings.
Most of the study programmes lead to an international bachelor’s or master’s degree, and all of them
are based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Ten percent of the students come from
abroad. The number of international students has grown rapidly, especially in international degree
programmes such as “Intercultural Communication and European Studies”, “International
Management” or “eBusiness”.
Applied research in cooperation with regional and international companies and institutes present an
important part of the education programmes. This practical relevance enhances the quality of
research and teaching and the partners of the research and development projects benefit from it as
well.
Fulda University of Applied Sciences has a long time experience in coordinating mobility projects.
Furthermore various research and innovation projects were completed in the framework of European
programmes such as the Life-Long Learning Programme and Research Framework Programme. The
Institute inter.research e.V. supports as an EU-Liaison office the European project activities of the
University.
Fulda University of Applied Sciences has been operating Erasmus und Leonardo da Vinci
programmes for ten years. Additionally it was coordinator of the European Social Fund project
„Hessen Networks!“.



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                     33
This project promoted student internships in cooperation with all universities in the federal state of
Hessen.
In the framework of the European „LIPS“-project an intercultural online training to prepare students
for an internship abroad was developed. The outcomes of these various projects contribute to the
quality of the mobility programmes. The most recent example is a game based learning component,
which was developed in the framework of the European project „GameIT“.

The Regional contact point for EU-placements is jointly run by the Fulda University of Applied
Sciences and the Institute inter.research e.V.. The consortium consists of those two institutions and
ten regional universities (Evangelische Fachhochschule Darmstadt, Technische Universität
Darmstadt, Fachhochschule Gießen-Friedberg, Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen, Fachhochschule
Frankfurt am Main, Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, Universität Kassel,
Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach, Hochschule RheinMain, Fachhochschule Koblenz –
RheinAhrCampus Remagen). The number of partners increased from initially 4 to now 11 members
of the network.

The number of Erasmus Placements grants was also increased from 35 in the first year to now 170
grants per year.
The main goals of the consortium are:
    - High quality preparation of students (content related, organisational and intercultural
        preparation)
    - Monitoring of the students to reach good results
    - Further development of key competences of students, e.g. foreign language skills,
        intercultural competence, self management and digital competence



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


The consortium ensures the cooperation, administration and continuing development of the project
within the network. The tasks of each partner are the following: The Fulda University of Applied
Sciences is the coordinating institution. It is the host of the Regional Contact Point for EU-Placements
as well as a sending institution. In cooperation with the Institute inter.research e.V. the Fulda
University of Applied Sciences takes care of administration of the placements and provides electronic
services, e.g. data bases, online platforms and virtual communities. All grant payments are
conducted and checked by the financial department of the Fulda University of Applied Sciences. All
decisions about a grant for student placements are transparent for every network partner. The
Regional Contact Point for EU-placements works closely with the partners of the consortium. All
partners get information and ideas to help operating the project. Once each semester a coordination
meeting takes place. Every institution involved in the project can ask questions and give feedback to
facilitate the further development of the project.
Each partner university has an own contact person for the Erasmus programme. Those local
coordinators organize regular information events for students such as the European week and
seminars to motivate students to do an internship abroad. Each partner offers weekly consultation
hours for students as well as the opportunity to ask questions online or via telephone. It checks the
formal criteria of the placement for their university students.
In addition to that, the Regional Contact Point for EU-Placements is present in various social
networks. It maintains an alumni group within the network Xing and provides a Facebook page to
reach potential interns and inform them about our offers.
The implementation of the mobility measures of the consortium is carried out by:

Project leader:
Monitoring and controlling of the grant allocation and the reporting system, strategic development of
the projects in terms of the Fulda University of Applied Sciences

Assistant of the finance management:
Payment of the grants, controlling of the financial final reports


Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                       34
Head of the Regional Contact Point for EU-placements:
Strategic development of the projects in terms of the network for EU placements, examination of the
project proposals and project reports, coordination of the online trainings,
Cooperation with the EU research department, other research and development projects and with the
Institute inter.research e.V.

Project coordinator:
Administration of the project, selection of applicants and grant allocation; consultation and
supervision of students, information sessions, provision of electronic services, e.g. data bases,
platforms and virtual communities, reports for the DAAD

Local coordinators in the partner universities of the consortium:
Selection of applicants, consultation and supervision of students, information sessions



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)

The consortium “Hochschule Fulda” offers various services for students.

Prior to mobility:
Each university offers information sessions, information online and consultation hours for students of
different study programmes and faculties.

The selection process is very transparent to the applicants. Formal criteria of the application papers
are communicated to the students as well as content related aspects of the letter of motivation. The
criteria are the presentation of the placement, the motivation to go and work abroad and the
engagement to prepare oneself for the stay abroad.

Most of the students are looking for a placement by themselves. This is promoted by the consortium,
because it is a good practice for the actual labour market that they are going to be confronted with
after finishing their studies. Nevertheless the Regional Contact point for EU-Placements maintains an
online-data base with placement offers, placement exchange and advices how to apply in different
countries.
The work programme and learning outcomes as well as rights and responsibilities of the intern, the
company, the universities and the Regional Contact Point are defined in a contract before the
placement starts. The quality Charta of placements is an obligatory part of the agreement and
guarantees the quality of the mobility.

All participants are being prepared by their own university and by the network. Lingual preparation is
offered as language classes at universities and in adult education centers.

Information on European countries, insurance, travel, rooms, work and life is offered to the applicants
in an extensive online database. In addition the online forum “Interns in the net” offers reports from
alumni interns and their experiences. Also it contains a manual for internships abroad.

The intercultural preparatory online training is an obligatory part for every participant in the Erasmus
programme. The Regional Contact Point offers this course in preparation of and during the internship.
The intercultural course is based on the outcomes of the European Development project “LIPS” and
prepares students specifically for key situations at the workplace during the placement. The modules
within the course are moderated by an intercultural trainer.
After the completion of the course students still have access to the online learning platform to check
on certain topics or for exchanging experiences with the online trainer. Part of the online course is the
awarded podcast „Absolutely Intercultural“.
2010 the consortium got awarded as “Good Practice” project among other for its intercultural
preparation.



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                     35
The Regional Contact Point and partner universities offer the following information to students prior to
their mobility:

    -   Program leaflets (individual from each university)
    -   Placement manual for students
    -   Website with program information (www.eu-placements.de)
    -   Intercultural Online-Training „Hands-on Learning“ (www.practical-preparation.de)
    -   Placement offers database
    -   Database for preparation with country information
    -   Alumni-Forum „Interns on the Net“ (password protected online environment with field reports
        of alumni)
    -   Facebook page of the Regional Contact Point
    -   XING-Alumni-group of the Regional Contact Point

During mobility:
The intercultural training is not only offered in preparation of the placement but also in the first weeks
of the placement. Different modules help the students to pass critical situations and to gain key
competences for a successful internship.
The intercultural trainer and the Regional Contact Point stay in contact with the interns for the time of
the placement. If any difficulties might occur, they try to support and help.

After the first half of the placement is over, the Regional Contact Point contacts the companies of the
interns to ask them about their contentment with the intern and if they would like to take future
interns.

After mobility:
After finishing the mobility all participants have to write a report about their experiences and hand in a
letter of reference from their placement company. If they agree, the report will be published for future
interns.
All participants receive a certificate about the intercultural training and the Erasmus programme. The
Europass is provided on request, too.


b) Service offered for partner HEIs


The partner HEIs of the consortium are members of a network. The network offers the following
services for them
    • A platform for exchange of experiences and good practice, e.g. in the framework of the yearly
        meetings, and a platform for the representation of interests of network members towards
        political bodies such as the European Commission (participation in consultations and network
        meetings)
    • A Number of central online-services, such as
             o The website of the network: www.eu-placements.de, including a database of
                  placements offers, a directory of placement databases, a repository of country
                  specific information to prepare the stay abroad
             o The online participants forum: Interns on the Net (editing of reports by students
                  according to content, and geographical categories
             o The online intercultural training “Hands-on learning”: www.practical-preparation.de
    • Flyers and further promotional materials
    • An administrative guideline for local co-ordinators (network partners) including a check-list for
        the review of applications by students
    • The central administration of the programme including payments to students, contact to host
        organisations, check of student reports, provision of certificates to students, reports to the
        National Agency, grant applications etc.

c) Service offered for companies


The consortium is in contact with various companies and seeks to increase the number of placement
offers, especially at companies, which have a good “track record” (i.e. students reporting about good
experiences)

Local:
Before the placement begins a contract, which is provided by the consortium, is concluded by the
company and the intern. The agreement sets up the work program and learning outcomes as well as
rights and responsibilities of the intern as well as the company. The quality Charta of placements is
an obligatory part of the agreement and guarantees the quality of the mobility.

Abroad:
After half of the placement is over, the company and the intern send evaluation forms to the Regional
Contact Point. If there are huge differences or apparent problems, the Regional Contact Point
contacts the company and the interns and helps to solve the problems.

Furthermore the consortium provides a guideline for host organisations, which have little experiences
with student placements:

Specific information on the consortium


We feel that a consortium provides us with the means to ensure and further develop quality aspects
of the programme. We offer other consortia and HEI to enrol their Erasmus participants in our online
intercultural training (for a modest fee). We are looking forward to a more European level of
exchange among consortia and to find ways of more intensive trans-national cooperation among
intermediate organisations (as it happens for example in the Erasmus for young entrepreneurs
programme). We have contributed to consultations and position papers for the new generation of

The LEONARDO OFFICE PART SAXONY PART SAXONY is an inter-university facility located at the
Technical University in Dresden which receives organizational and financial support from partner
higher education institutions in Saxony. Since 1995, the LEONARDO OFFICE PART SAXONY has
served as a regional service point for higher education institutions in Saxony to help carry out the
LEONARDO DA VINCI programme and is also responsible in the field of university-industry-co-
operation for assisting students wishing to take part in ERASMUS internships via the “LIFELONG
LEARNING” programme.
The LEONARDO OFFICE PART SAXONY has extensive experience with the internship application
process and general implementation of various EU programmes and has been successful as a
project coordinator and partner for 34 projects. To date, over 2.600 students have been placed at
internships within Europe. Over the past 19 years, the LEONARDO OFFICE PART SAXONY has
served as a point of contact between companies both in Saxony and within Europe and has built up
an extensive partner network which now comprises over 1.600 companies, research institutes, social
and cultural institutions, as well as universities in 33 European countries. The aim of establishing co-
operations with project partners is to be able to ensure a sufficient number of specialized internship
placements for students, and to continuously improve the quality of internships. This is made possible
through active involvement of universities and higher education institutions in Saxony with internship
projects, as well as support for interns from personnel departments and supervisors at companies.
The LEONARDO OFFICE PART SAXONY is recognized by 16 higher education institutions in
Saxony as the coordinator for ERASMUS internships within the Saxon consortium and has therefore
established as Saxony’s main internship placement office.

SAXONY has grown from 5 in 1995 to 16 today; they maintain a strong and successful co-operation
for ERASMUS internships. While higher education institutions are responsible for informing students
about ERASMUS internships and providing initial consultation services, the LEONARDO OFFICE
PART SAXONY provides comprehensive counselling, monitoring and assistance for ERASMUS
applicants from the beginning to the end (including evaluation) of the internship process.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.


The LEONARDO Office Brandenburg is leading a consortium of the nine universities in the Federal
State of Brandenburg. Because of the relatively small size of the Brandenburg universities the
consortium is applying in cooperation with the LEONARDO Office Brandenburg together for
European sponsorships since the first generation of the Leonardo da Vinci Programme (LdV).
Due to many years of experience in the field of placing students and graduates in work placements in
foreign European countries and sponsorships for their stay abroad the consortium was able to
improve constantly the placement process as well as quality of the work experience the students and
graduates could gain from their placement. During that time the LEONARDO Office Brandenburg
also created a widespread network of reliable partner institutions employing the students. The
LEONARDO Office Brandenburg coordinates all tasks resulting from the all of the LLP projects.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


The partner universities provide initial consultation for their interested students in coordination with
the LEONARDO Office Brandenburg. The LEONARDO Office Brandenburg manages all tasks from
application for the sponsorship for different ERASMUS Placements projects for the whole consortium
over the management of the applicants for the different projects to the monitoring and certification of
the placements. Furthermore the LEONARDO Office administrates the funds provided by DAAD.
Another important task of the LEONARDO Office Brandenburg is the first personal contact with new
companies and institutions.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)


before the mobility:

The LEONARDO Office Brandenburg offers on its website (www.tu-cottbus.de/leonardo) information
about the programme itself, criteria for applying for sponsorships, help in form of downloads and info
material for prospective applicants, current reports about placements and foreign countries and their
culture from students. The office also offers presentations about placements in foreign European
countries at the consortial HEIs.
Applicants are also given guidance for insuring themselves via the DAAD group insurances, as well
as help for getting working permits in their host countries if necessary. The office also issues
certificates and paperwork for German administrations and authorities in hosting countries.

during the mobility:

One of the most important instruments of our project management is a monitoring system developed
by us. This ensures an optimal support of the students during the placement.
Student and supervisor will be contacted directly by us shortly after the beginning of the placement
time and halfway during the placement.



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                       47
after the mobility:

An evaluation of the placement has to be handed in by the student in form of a personal report, the
questionnaire of the eu-community, as well as a detailed questionnaire of the LEONARDO Office
Brandenburg. After successful evaluation of students will be given the europass Mobility and their
placements will be certified by the LEONARDO Office.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.


The Leonardo-Office Saxony-Anhalt (ComEAST) was founded in 1991 in order to improve co-
operation and transfer between Science and Business by means of European projects. Training
programmes (modern technologies, women and technology) as well as transnational mobility projects
used to be the focus of ComEAST´s work. Since Leonardo II, ComEAST mainly concentrates on
mobility projects for students and graduates and engages in the follow up or initiation of pilot projects
/ transfer of innovation projects related to it (preparation of students, evaluation of placements). In
2005, the Leonardo-Office received the European Quality in Mobility Award in Oslo.
In 2011, a first application for vocational students´mobility (15) was submitted. The Leonardo-Office
funded about 200 students and 80 graduates in 2010.
ComEAST is a regional Leonardo Office, covering students, graduates and vocational
students from the whole of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. The consortia comprises 7
higher education institutions. It is seated at the University of Magdeburg. At the moment, the
team consists of 4 (part-time) colleagues (Manager, project-coordinator, assistant, student
assistant).
The Leonardo-Office has always hosted Incomings in Saxony-Anhalt. Since 2007, due to EU-
prescriptions, it is not possible to give grants to Incomings any more. Nevertheless, the Leonardo-
Office offers placements to students, graduates and vocational students who want to come to
Saxony-Anhalt for a training as well as a mentoring programme.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


The sole responsibility for applying for, fund management of and reporting on the ERASMUS
programmes lies with the LEONARDO-Office. Furthermore, it provides placement offers to incoming
as well as outgoing students and graduates, grants scholarships, assures the placements’ quality
through regular evaluations and provides its own public relations.

The universities support the LEONARDO-Office where the responsibilities lie with them (i.e.
Europass, Diploma Supplement, Training Agreement) or where reasonable (i.e. providing information
for, attending to and advising their students locally, publishing project results at their institutions).
Once a year, the LEONARDO-Office organises a meeting with the universities’ international offices
for coordination purposes.
Furthermore, it conducts local orientation sessions for interested students with the help of the
universities.

Next to the employees of the LEONARDO-Office (see above) support is also being found on the part
of the universities, i.e. from the international offices’ directors as well as the faculties’ representatives
(appointees for internships or internationalization, examination office’s employees or interested and
dedicated teaching or administrative staff).

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium.

The consortium was founded in 1992 as a training partnership between universities and enterprises
to strengthen to cooperation between these partners at European level.
From the early beginning the consortium decided to have an institutional body located in Ilmenau –
LEONARDO-Büro Thüringen LBT. TU Ilmenau is host of this office / organisation and provides the
necessary service to run the administrative business.
The office staff is recruited by 3 people plus additional personnel on demand (mostly students and
part time workers). The office works on behalf and under support of the regional Ministry of
Education, Science and Culture and gets additional money from there to co-finance the projects. The
staff costs are covered by this ministry and by the participating HEIs. Additional staff is paid by the
OM budgets from the different projects. The strategy of the office development is coordinated by a
regional steering committee of the consortium and by this a high transparency of the work is
guaranteed. The consortium works successfully in ERASMUS placement projects since 2007. The
LLP program has reinforced the idea of running mobility projects as consortia and gives special
service to International Offices of the participating HEIs. The high level of quality in the project was
awarded 2002 within a regional competition – “SOKRATES / LEONARDO award Thuringia” and at
European level awarded by “Quality in mobility award 2006 in Graz/AT (rank 2).
The LBT is participating in several projects under thematic networks (see above) and was member of
Q-PlaNet where a draft of European standard in mobility actions was developed.
The special competence and expertise is provided to other promoters in the region of Thuringia and
in Europe by presentations and recommendations.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.

Partner HEIs have equal rights in this consortium.
They give students information on the ERASMUS programme by international office and faculties.
Faculties provide qualified applicants with a reference – this is an obligatory part of their ERASMUS
application.
Students have access to supervision and support by the faculty during their ERASMUS placement.
Academic recognition of ERASMUS placements will be given by placement office/examination office
for each obligatory placement as agreed by signature of training agreement. This depends on
fulfilment of this agreement.


Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                      54
Additional placements will be recorded by faculties in the Diploma Supplement.

Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a.) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)

before the mobility:
The consortium offers services for students at nine HEIs. Majority of students get in contact with the
coordinator by post, email or telephone.
    • Students get information and will be advised on several aspects of administrative
        preparation.
    • Students are recommended to use http://eu-community.daad.de, http://www.vocalproject.eu
        and http://www.interculture.de/leonardo.htm for language/cultural preparation. These
        opportunities meet the requirements of the students – mostly placements are agreed short-
        term and so students can prepare their stay abroad online without or lower costs.
    • Some students get a placement by the coordinator – this service is very helpful for the
        students and makes a lot of effort for the coordinator – but it leads to successful projects.
    • The coordinator prepares all parts of placement contract (Participant data sheet, Training
        Agreement, Placement Agreement) in cooperation with student, host organisation and
        sending HEI.
    • Normally the first payment will be made one week after completion of placement contract. So
        students have 80 % of ERASMUS grant before - or in the first month of their placement!

during the mobility:
The coordinator prepares Europass Mobiltity and helps in other matters (for example BAföG). If there
is a problem (personally, in relation to the placement/host organisation) the coordinator is looking for
its solution.

after the mobility:
    • Help regarding placement report documents
    • Invitation to information meeting to give a report of the placement to future ERASMUS

Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                     55
        placement students.

b) Service offered for partner HEIs

before the mobility:
ERASMUS application for funding
Preparation of each individual placement contract, especially: training agreement (information on
ECTS to achieve and responsible partner at HEI)

during the mobility:
partner in case of problems, preparation and issue of Europass Mobility

after the mobility:
report on the project to the national agency, report to HEIs about each project in general, sending of
documents related to individual placements if requested


c) Service offered for companies

local:
integration of incoming students as far as they are known and identified, local money from a
Thuringian foundation (STIFT) is used to keep this kind of activity and the former network alive!
abroad:
    • request for placement opportunities - select suitable candidates – send student applications
    • preparation and help to complete training agreement
    • other service on request
    • preparation and issue of Europass Mobility
    • in some cases mediation to meet interests for both parties (student and host organisation)
    • further cooperation and preparation of following placements




Specific information on the consortium

The LBT takes care for incoming students and participants of mobility measures and provides a
broad variety of special care for all mobile people within its activities. From the early beginning the
close cooperation with enterprises in Europe and in Germany is part of the strategy and our service
and support to find placements for students in European enterprises and institutions is in the
meantime unique. This helped to ensure quality and quantity of ERASMUS placement projects.
Furthermore it has contributed to reduce the influence of structural and financial crises on the number
of ERASMUS placements.
Some students and enterprises have been invited by the National Agency DAAD to present their
experience at international meetings in London and Helsinki.

 Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

 Leader of the consortium
 Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
 the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
 coordinating organisation of the consortium


The Consortium was created in 2007 among some institutions: Junta de Castilla y León, Fundación
de la Lengua Española, CECALE and Caja de Burgos.

A total of 58 Schools take part in the Consortium. All of them are based in Castilla y León.
The fields of study of the students we send abroad are so wide that it is difficult to attach a detailed
list. We can say, as an example, the most representative in terms of number of students: Computer
Science, Hotel and Catering, Animation of physical and sport activities, Image, Administration and
Finances, International trade, Secretarial courses.

The experience in the field of organising and managing the placements has been based in two ways:
In the first way, we look for the companies to do the placements, we help the students to look for the
accommodation in cooperation with the teachers, and we organise a language course, to try to help
the students to adapt themselves once they get the new country and the company.

On the other way, we collaborate with some companies to help us to organise the search of
company, accommodation and language course for the students. In this case, the School is directly
involved in the search of company, and they prepare the training agreements, so as to give direct
information about the kind of tasks the student is supposed to improve during the work placement.

the School, so as to be able to communicate during the internship to evaluate the student.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium

The main aim of the FEUN Program is to increase the employment possibilities of our university
students and prepare them to work in a global context. By supporting practical work we are helping to
enhance oue students’ skills and gain valuable international experience. This experience and the
cultural awareness that grows with it, will allow our students to be better placed in the labour market
on completion of their studies. Moreover it will add to their european identity in general, and develop
their values on a personal level.

FEUN has been working in the area of student and graduate mobility for twenty years. Initially on a
national level and then on an international level. This is our third year as consortium coordinators,
however we have run Leonardo da Vinci programs for students in the past (before 2007). We also
run our own Global Internship Program for placements that take place outside the EU. In 2009-2010
we organised 245 international placements between the three programs.


Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                   71
 Our international department counts with three coaching professionals in the various faculties who
 prepare the students for their practical experience. Their work involves interviews, workshops and
 personal coaching sessions as well as direct collaboration with the faculties in order to maintain the
 quality of the placements and the monitoring of students.

 The department also has a corporate relations coordinator who deals with the companies and
 establishes the workplans, dates and flows.

 Finally there is a European projects manager, administrative back-up and a             web/comunication
 manager.

 Cooperation with partner HEIs
 Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
 tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


 All consortium members are Technical and Vocational Training Centres of social initiative belonging
 to the association HETEL, founded in 1987. The centers have established a dynamic partnership and
 joint work. HETEL promotes the development of innovative projects, including the mobility of high
 degree vocational students, with a commitment to achieve that, at least 5% of these students, can
 havethe opportunity of a 12 week internship in European companies. As indicated by the letters of
 commitment, the role of the sending institutes covers various areas of management: from information
 to candidates, looking for companies, the selection and preparation of the students participating, to
 its on-line tutoring before, during and after the completion of the mobility, as well as the negotiation of
 the internships, certification, dissemination and evaluation of the project, always working in teams
 with other partner institutions and in constant communication with them. In addition, each sending
 partner is responsible for the co-financing of the project in the proportion that it deserves. For fifteen
 years HETEL has been promoting the interaction of its partner institutions in the management of
 European mobility projects. We have sent more than a thousand students for 12 week internships.
 Since then there is a specific working group, with a European Project coordinator from each
 institution, which meets monthly. The group is coordinated by HETEL European project coordinator.
 The monitoring and evaluation of the projects are carried out during these meetings, as well as by
 email or phone.

Specific information on the consortium


Our objective is to promote the personal and occupational development of the persons enrolled in our
courses, by means of high-quality education and training provision.Educational provision is oriented
towards the actual demands of the labour market and it also provides orientation in a world in motion.
The high level of our courses is maintained by means of an internal quality management system,
continual further training of employees and a transnational transfer of know-how. Most of our
education and training courses are based on modular systems, so individually tailored, and thus
highly efficient, forms of learning are possible. The formation is certified according to the international
standard ISO.

The field we plan to work with in the Leonardo and Erasmus programmes includes initial vocational
education high and medium level in the following fields:

    •     Health & Safety
    •     Administration
    •     Maintenance of Self-propelled Vehicles
    •     Electricity, Electronics and Telecommunications
    •     Mechanical manufacture
    •     Chemistry
    •     Computer science

Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                       85
    •   Maintenance and services to the production and so on.

After a theoretical and practical training during two years, our students need to complete a practical
training in companies to get their degree. This practical training is organized according to the different
curricula developed at the colleges and would take into account a period of 400 hours, between 10
and 12 weeks, in different countries of the European Union. IKASLAN apply for a Leonardo and
Erasmus project every years from 1999. On the other hand IKASLAN hosts too students from
different countries looking for a training place and suitable accommodation, allways looking for the
reciprocity.

Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


IIOHEI consortium cooperation is carried out among two universities (Oulu UAS as a coordinator and
the University of Oulu) as well as the City of Oulu. As the size of the consortium is small and the
three actors have a long history and lot of previous experience in the cooperation of international
actions, the cooperation within the consortium is easy to manage. The responsibilities/tasks of the
actors are divided as follows:

Oulu UAS:
    - Is the main coordinator of the consortium, employs the consortium coordinator and has the
         main responsibility of the consortium administration in general.
University of Oulu:
    - Assigns the consortium contact person in the university and has representatives in the
         steering group of the consortium.
City of Oulu
    - Has a representative in the steering group of the consortium and acts as a link between the
         HEI’s and the different city organisations.

The consortium work as such is divided as follows:

Steering group
- Decides the main functions and monitors the actions.
Consortium Coordinator
- Writes the needed applications and reports, communicates with the National Agency.
- Allocates/ makes the decisions on the student grants, watches the budget.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium


The Réseau EGC Consortium is managed at several levels. The coordinator and the administrative
assistant of the EGC Business School network manage the budget, payments, and procure all the
necessary signatures from the head office of the National Chamber of Commerce in Paris.

The operating coordinator, currently Betty Carlson, takes care of all of the day-to-day operation of the
Consortium. She is the international coordinator at one of the member schools, EGC Rodez. She
finalises all of the Ulysse entries, answers school’s questions about all Erasmus documents and
procedures, and helps brief and inform new international coordinators. She also writes the annual
applications and keeps up the archives for the entire consortium.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


The Réseau EGC Consortium is a placement consortium, and doesn’t have a particular cooperation
with our partner universities in the area of placements. We have Erasmus partner HEIs, but our
relationship is generally limited to Erasmus study programmes. Partner HEIs may occasionally call on
us, or us on them, to help with finding a placement, but that is relatively rare.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)

before the mobility: language and cultural preparation, information on insurance, help with writing
CVs and letters of application, aid in defining the placement student’s tasks, contacts with the
receiving companies

during the mobility: monitoring by phone or email, help with any problems that may arise within or
outside the scope of the placement

after the mobility: Evaluations from the companies, collection and analysis of student reports


b) Service offered for partner HEIs

In the case of receiving (in our own HEI) or placing (in a company) a placement student from a
partner HEI:

before the mobility: completion of all documents, aid in finding lodging, negotiating tasks for the
placement period

during the mobility: monthly evaluations, help with getting adjusted in the town, help with any
problems with placement tasks

after the mobility: participation in the evaluation process and paperwork if needed

c) Service offered for companies


local: Not applicable except in exceptional cases

abroad: Advice and information about the Erasmus process



Specific information on the consortium


Our close contacts with local Chambers of Commerce and Industry could serve to help place
incoming students in French companies. Although we do not have a lot of time resources and
financial resources available for this function, we are willing to try to start cooperation with other
consortia on an exchange basis to work in this direction.

We also hope to become an active member of a European “Corsortium of Consortia” if such a body is
created.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium


Our consortium involves 4 engineering high schools which represent approximately 3 000 students.
These schools cover practically all the business fields.



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                  97
IPL's aim is to mutualize the grants, in order to be more efficient in their use between the four
schools, to consolidate the 4 schools in their educational role by the dialogue about the way of
organising and managing placements (IPL is a place where the 4 schools share their knowledge) IPL
also ensures the administrative part: setting up of the project, printing of the agreements,
administrative and financial follow up, evaluation.

Every two months, IPL shows to the 4 schools assessments and dashboards about the use of the
European grant. A procedure created by IPL is a summary of what the students have to do to be
granted, it is updated every year and sent to each school.

IPL is a coordinator and an administrative and financial administrator. IPL elaborates the project with
the 4 schools. IPL writes the agreements between IPL and the student and between the students, the
school and the institution which will receive the trainee, ensures the follow up, and activates the
payments when the agreements have been signed by all the parts. (The amounts of the grants are
decided by the schools). IPL is responsible for the use of the total community grant, with a maximum
of financial and administrative efficiency.

IPL is responsible for the reporting to the ERASMUS agency in Bordeaux and for the administrative
and financial follow up, as well IPL is also responsible for the official documents between the schools
and the receiving institutions and between the schools and the students.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.

The 4 schools have an educational and promoting role towards the students : - The schools have to
tell the students about the ERASMUS grant, they have to give to each interested student a procedure
established by the consortium, - they have to help students in finding receiving institutions, they have
to select students, they have to check the description of the placement programme of each student,
they must give students a scientific, technical, linguistic and cultural preparation, they have to check if
everything is in order before the student departure – they also decide the amount of the grant - they
ensure the educational follow up of the students during their placement and at last they decide of the
number of ECTS they give to the student after the placement has been done. They also promote the
ERASMUS project. Each student wanting to be granted has to ask the school for a grant at last one
month before departure.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)


Before the mobility, the schools offers:

- An educational preparation : They discuss with the students what they should try to do during their
placement period in order to improve their skills and knowledge, they give to the students objectives
to achieve during their placement and if needed they teach the students specific technical knowledge
which is necessary to work in some countries (ex. : security training).
- A cultural preparation : general training on economy, on international trade, geopolitics,
interculturality, Lay out of the students placements reports and of some documents about the host
countries.
- A linguistic preparation : intensive training courses in small groups, specific vocabulary on the
professional target fields, international linguistic exams preparation with level requirements. For some
students a linguistic and cultural further training must be specifically organized



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                       98
- Assistance to the management of the practical and logistic aspects: A person in each school is
particularly allocated to these tasks (check of the students health protection, of their personal
insurance and civil liability, administrative formalities, help in the organization of the journey, of
accommodation and catering. The host company sometimes also brings help for the organization of
the journey, the accommodation and the catering facilities.

During the mobility the school offers:
During the placement, the school gets in touch regularly with the students either by phone or by mail.
The school is also in touch with the host organization in order to check if the placement is ok. This
follow-up is to check the good integration of the student and an educational follow-up. After one
month of placement the institution has to send to the school a first report on the trainee. This report
should indicate the methodological approach and the schedule which will be followed during the
placement. Some times, the person responsible of the students in the school goes and visits some
student. Evaluation sheets are also given to the host organization at the beginning of the placement
and are analyzed during the visit of the school. Sometimes there are video conferences.

after the mobility the school offers:
The students must write a report about their placement. The reports are evaluated by the schools
who give a notation. The schools also organize, for each student, an oral exam about their placement
period. The evaluation of the quality of the placement is thus an integral part of the global evaluation
of the student in order for him to succeed his diploma : evaluation of the work done during the
placement, of the final report, of the oral exam. The students are thus given ECTS : 50 ECTS for all
the placements that the students have to do during their 3 years in CPE, 36 for ECAM, 46 for ISARA
and 30 for ITECH. The acquired skills are validated by the receiving institution and discussed with the
school.


b) Service offered for partner HEIs


IPL offers to the associated four schools :
before the mobility:
Conception of the project and transmission to the 2e2f agency, updating of the procedure created by
IPL named "How to ask for an ERASMUS grant, your rights and your duties", collecting all the
documents required for each student granted, creating of a file for each student, writing of the
agreements, sending them to the students by mail, collecting them back after they have been signed
by all parts.
during the mobility:
Payments of the first parts of the grants, follow up of each individual student file, financial follow up of
the entire ERASMUS grant in order to grant a maximum of students in the respect of the ERAMUS
rules, creation and follow up of financial sheets, sending information regularly to the schools.
Creation of the intermediate report on the ULYSSE web site.
after the mobility:
Payments of the balances of the grants, administrative and financial follow up of each student file and
of the entire project, checking of the real dates of each placement, collecting all the documents
required to justify the end of the placement periods: reports, final assessments written by the
receiving institutions, certificates of attendance, boost the students by e-mail to obtain all the
documents and at last creation of the final reports on the ULYSSE web site and sending these
reports to the 2e2f agency in Bordeaux.


c) Service offered for companies


The associated schools are in connection with the companies which welcome the students.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium


The leader of the Consortium is PROMOTRANS GROUP which is a trade association specialising in
the training of young people, salaried workers and higher executives in the areas of transport,
logistics and international supply-chain management. Its aim is also to cater for the needs of
companies in terms of development of new competences, thereby taking up the challenges of a
smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
To reach such an objective, PROMOTRANS group has progressively developed a higher education
system based on a work-linked training system implemented in the various higher schools of the
group. Such a system permits to increase the employability of the students through a continuous
updating of the degree programmes and international mobility which has been the mainstay of the
higher educational system since 1987. The development of international mobility has been made
possible through the creation of the European Forum of Logistics Education (EFLE) in 1993, in which
the European School of Transport from PROMOTRANS group was one of the founding members.
From such a forum, a network of Higher Education Institutions has been built up to bolster the
multiplication of placement exchanges between the members. Since the first Leonardo programme
initiated by the European School of Transport, around 330 placements have been organised both at
the level of PROMOTRANS higher schools but also at the level of the other Higher Education
Institutions of the network.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


The Consortium is a four-tier structure.

The first tier is composed of the International Schools of Transport and Logistics of PROMOTRANS
group. Their role is to train the students for them to acquire the necessary competences in the areas
of transport, logistics and international supply chain management, to organize a linguistic and cultural
preparation in accordance with the objectives of the international mobility and to prepare them for
international mobility.

The second tier is made up of partner Higher Education Institutions whose main role is to offer some
placement opportunities, to take care of administrative formalities referring to the securing of
Erasmus traineeship agreements and to follow up the trainees in the phase of placement
implementation. If need be, they can also help the students to conform with the local legislation in
terms of placement.


The third-tier is the International Department of PROMOTRANS group, which has administrative,
financial and organisational responsibilities. It manages all the paper formalities linked with


Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                   101
ERASMUS programmes, it manages the financial aspects and determines the future leads of
development of the mobility network.

Last tier is made up of the companies which host the students. They are all structured to offer
suitable placements to the students. They propose training programmes in conformity with the
specifications of the sending institutions and they have tutorship commensurate with the level of
qualifications required by the students.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium

                                        The Consortium ARTS

To start with, the acronym stands for Art’s Role in Training for Students.
The network ARTS aims to widen and enrich the future employment possibilities of our students
across EU countries through the development of targeted educational traineeships.
In this way it is a powerful platform to build and shape professional skills while promoting the
knowledge of foreign cultures. In addition our trainees, upon return to their home country, will
evaluate and give feedback on their experience, thus strengthening the feeling of belonging to a
common geographical area and common educational, cultural and economic space.
This will lead to the relaxation of the boundaries in the intercultural debate.

The main question is: why has ARTS been set up? The main idea behind ARTS is to try to carry out
one of the most important Erasmus Operational Objectives of the Lifelong Learning Programme:
increased quality and quantity of cooperation between HEI & enterprises.
Actually, ATS is one of the few sectoral and thematic European Consortia Placement within
Erasmus/LLP frame.
History also shows that the European musical and artistic tradition has been built on collaboration
and the reciprocal exchange of know-how, traditions and creative and educational experiences. This
process has resulted in a common musical and artistic identity that has spread across the entire
Western world. Through an ECP, the trainee is offered a placement opportunity to acquire “best
practice” as a way to develop the specific lexical and technical language required to progress in
his/her own area of competence. As for the content, the primary objective is the development of a
cultural, artistic and musical industry. It will encompass:
− production (cinema, music, theatre, and advertising) and entertainment (audiovisual, TV, radio
    and new media);
− the preservation and valorisation of cultural, architectonic, environmental assets and musical
    assets;
− the understanding of the role of innovation in the area of competence as well as of the impact of
    new technologies on best practice.
The activity will be directly supported by theatres, orchestras, foundations, museums, festivals,
associations, libraries, museums and groups of professionals from the fields of acoustics, restoration,
visual and plastic arts, photography and virtual reality.


Activities will be framed so as to maximize the following indicators:
− delivery of quality (best practice);

−   increased student mobility;
−   increased synergy between education and training as well as higher education-enterprises;

−    increased innovation in higher education (content, process, services, pedagogic and didactic
     methodology) based on progress in ICT.
The ARTS network has been, up to now, a great and effective experience of institutional cooperation.
This cooperation is going to be increasingly decisive for the future of our institutions. In fact, the
smooth collaboration, among the coordinators of each institution involved in ARTS, has allowed us to
use all the grants from our National Agency to the Consortium ARTS. These outcomes, and of course
the development of a wider network, have led to an increase in all ARTS resources, especially
financial resources.
In fact having witnessed the good experience of the Consortium, the Executive Board of our Higher
Education Ministry has agreed to co-fund ARTS activity in the future. All of us are really delighted by
this extremely good news, which is most promising for our development in the near future.
Among the eight Consortia approved by the Italian National Agency, ARTS is the only Erasmus
Consortium Placement headed by a Higher Education Institute of Music: the Conservatoire of
Cosenza.


3.1 ARTS categories.

3.1.1 Aims.
The main aim is to link academic institutions and enterprises to promote the integration of students in
the EU-wide labour market.
In fact, ARTS aims to widen and enrich future employment possibilities of students across EU
countries through the development of targeted educational traineeships.
It is a powerful platform to build and shape professional skills while promoting the knowledge of
foreign cultures.
ARTS will also evaluate and obtain feedback on the experience acquired by trainees upon return to
their home country, thus strengthening the sense of belonging to a common European geographical,
educational, cultural and economical space.
Boundaries will thus gradually dissolve in the intercultural debate.

3.1.2 Strategy: possible success factors:
− sustainable cooperation between HEI and enterprises is an explicit mission of the Higher
    Education Institutions;
− career incentives for teachers involved in this ‘non-academic’ activity;
− staff (teaching and administrative) involved in the cooperation with enterprises
− establishment of companies (spin-off?);
− involvement in local / regional development.

3.2 The role of ARTS:

3.2.1 For students
− familiarising students with the world of work;
− enhancing employability;
− improving foreign language competence;
− promoting inter-cultural understanding and knowledge of other European countries;
− contributing to the stimulation of other forms of HEI-enterprise cooperation.

3.2.2 For enterprises
− influx of new ideas at low cost;
− promoting stronger links with higher education institutions and their staff;
− adding an international dimension, especially to smaller locally based enterprises.

3.2.3 For HEI
− better motivated and more competent students;
− links with enterprises leading to other forms of collaboration;

−   improving awareness and competence of teaching and administrative staff;
−   strengthening links with the local community.

3.3 Expected Outcomes
With ARTS, the trainee will be offered a placement opportunity to acquire “best practice” as well as to
develop the specific lexical and technical language required to make progress in their own area of
competence.
Activities will be designed to maximize:
    delivery of quality (best practice);
    increased student mobility;
    increased synergy between education and training as well as higher education-enterprises;
    increased innovation in higher education (contents, processes, services, pedagogic and
didactic methodology);

3.5 Some enterprise partners of ARTS
We perfectly agree with Günter Verheugen, Member of the European Commission Responsible for
Enterprise and Industry who stated that enterprises wer e the engine of the European economy.
They are an essential source of jobs, create entrepreneurial spirit and innovation in the EU and are
thus crucial for fostering competitiveness and employment. They aim at promoting entrepreneurship,
investment and growth. L istening to enterprises is a key towards the successful implementation of
the Lisbon goals.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium

Iuav is a small university with an enrolment of approximately 6200 students. The number of
students is limited to guarantee the quality of education offered. The academic staff includes 545
professors, 192 of which are tenured or tenure-tracked (67 full professors, 92 associate professors
and 33 researchers) and 5 non-tenured extraordinary professors. Highly acclaimed professors,
different kinds of expertise (professional, research), from over thirty countries of the world.



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                 114
This is the firs Academic Year in which Iuav coordinates a Consortium: previously, Erasmus
Placement and other placement projects have been carried on successfully:

1. cooperation with Treviso Technology aimed at promoting and managing activities of training
2. FIXO project management with the aim of carrying out work experience and job placements
(Placements managed: 100 per year)
3. Erasmus Placement mobility management.

What makes the Iuav special is the emphasis it places on project-based learning. It is the only
university in Italy entirely devoted to teaching the planning and design of everything related to the
spaces and environments in which we live: buildings, cities and landscapes; objects of daily use and
graphics; cultural, theatrical and multimedia events.

The Iuav has three faculties – Architecture, Regional Planning, and Arts and Design –, all of which
have grown out of the original School of Architecture (founded in Venice in 1926). In recent years the
Iuav has implemented an unique experiment in “project-based learning” that is the first of its kind in
Italy.Theory and technique are integrated with hands-on training that spans the entire planning
and design process, from the conception of an idea all the way through to its realisation.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.

All HEIs participating in this project have acquired experience in the management of internships.
Currently, the average annual training placements managed each year by participants HEIs, in the
home country and abroad, are the following:
     - Iuav University of Venice: about 1100,
     - 2300,
     - University of Trento: about 1744
The organisations with which the partner HEIs have established an agreement in order to organize
internship programmes can be summarized as follows:
     - Iuav University of Venice: about 1500;
     - Ca 'Foscari University of Venice: more than 7000;
     - University of Sassari: about 400;
     - University of Trento: about740.
Thanks to the level of experience reached, the partners will cooperate with the Coordinator in the
management of the Placements, above all in the administrative management of the project and in
organizing the tutorship. On the other hand, the coordinator will manage the financial issues and will
discuss the guidelines of the project with the partners, from the bureaucratic duties to the
dissemination of results.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium

Founded in 1978, the University of Udine rapidly established for itself an international reputation and
a place among the medium size research universities. Whilst the creation of new knowledge and
higher education remain its fundamental mission, the University lays particular emphasis on
disseminating knowledge and innovation within the local economic milieu and society at large. Thus,
the University has undertaken a diverse and varied programme of technology and innovation transfer
and of internationalisation. Udine was the first university to offer courses such as Preservation and
Restauration of Cultural Heritage, Management Engineering, Food Sciences and Technologies,
Banking Economics. After Turin, Udine was the second university in Northern Italy to offer Computer
Sciences. The first Faculty in Udine was Modern Languages, which also specialises in the languages
and cultures of Eastern and Central Europe. Furthermore, the education programmes of the
University of Udine are particularly remarkable for their innovative spirit appropriate for the new and
emerging professions (for instance, Biotechnologies, Statistics and computer Sciences for Business
Management, Viticulture and Oenology, Public Relations, Web Technologies, Music and Cinema
Restauration Studies). Various highly specialist institutes testify to the University’s leading role in the
fields of research and technology: the University Hospital and the Agriculture Experimental Farm. The
University of Udine has a distributed campus comprising many other sites throughout and beyond
Friuli.

Currently, the University of Udine has 10 faculties: Agricultural Sciences, Economics, Law,
Engineering, Arts, Modern Languages, Medicine and Surgery, Mathematical Physical and Natural
Sciences, and Educational Sciences, which together offers 42 three-years degree courses and 38
specialist courses. In addition the University offers postgraduate teaching and research with a broad
and diverse range of training courses, University Master degrees, specialist schools and doctorate
degrees.

Also thanks to its geographical position close to international borders, the University of Udine has
developed a particular expertise in the field of international relations and mobility; this enables to deal
efficiently with the administration and the financial management of training programs. Its experience
has also allowed to develop an efficient communication plan to let students know about possibilities
offered by the Erasmus Placement program.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


All the partners of the Consortium are committed to improve the status, the quality, the efficiency, the
attractiveness of Erasmus Placement program. The members share each own’s good practices and
experiences in the field of international mobility.
The leader of the consortium attends to the coordination, the general administration and the financial
activities of the project, to the monitoring of the activities of the partners and to the dissemination of
the project.
The specific expertises of the partners have been divided on the basis of the specificities of each
institution. The tasks of the institutional partners are the following. The University of Trieste is
particularly responsible for the implementation and maintenance of the website of the consortium.
SISSA monitors host organizations and produces an annual summary report on some aspects of the
project (fields of studies and countries covered, etc.) in order to let the consortium improve its offer.
The University of Catanzaro is responsible for the dissemination of the program in the South of Italy
in order to reinforce the skills and experiences of the Consortium also in this part of the Country. The
Conservatories of Trieste and Udine facilitate the integration of the consortium with music production
institutions, with theaters, orchestras, music festivals and agencies operating abroad. Technical
partners are also very important: their role is to strengthen the collaboration between HEIs,
enterprises, and regional agencies; to help dissemininating the project; to broaden contacts with
enterprises abroad. Their role will be even more important for the success of the project in future,
with particular reference to incoming mobility.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)


Before the mobility. All the members of the Consortium have established a network of host
organizations with which they maintain constant contacts before, during and after the trainings of the
students. Academic tutoring is given to the students who have been selected for the project. Students
can attend free courses in foreign languages, as language competence is considered very important
for the inclusion in the host organization and in the host country. They are also supported with "fact-
files", documents that contain informations about the host Country, accommodation, means of
transport, etc.
In addition, the members of the Consortium provide an insurance which covers students during their
working period in the host organization.

During the mobility. During their training, students are supervised by the host organization tutors.
These have a constant relationship with the sending institution in order to monitor the placement
activities and facilitate the inclusion of students in the host organization and in the host country.

After the mobility. The members of the Consortium ensure the deliver of Europass mobility document
to students and assist them in the preparation of the final documents. An online report is available,
which enables students in the evaluation of the training experience.
In most cases, academic recognition of the student’s placement activity is ensured.

Participation in other EU-Programmes since 2007

Name of the programme                   SHORT description of the project


Leonardo Da Vinci                       The aim of our project was to implement the formation of
“BIOINFORMATIC AND NANO-                young students in the biotechnology field, especially in the
BIOTECHNOLOGY BIO-NANO”                 sector of molecular biology, nano-technologies and
I/06/A/PL-154384-SU                     informatics applied to this discipline. For the realization of this
From 01/10/2006 to 31/05/2008           objectives students must acquire the capability to work
                                        autonomously and must be able to use new technologies.
                                        This result was completely satisfied in all stages developed
                                        under this project. The activities done as declared by the
                                        tutors concern new analysis of genes, of proteins in bacteria
                                        and human cells and are in general finalised to the study of
                                        various illness including Alzheimer disease. For some
                                        students the stage was useful for completing the thesis, for
                                        the others it was part of their curriculum and some credits
                                        were attributed in relation to the length of the stage and on the
                                        basis of the report presented by the student and certified by
                                        the tutor. The Europass mobility has been prepared for all
                                        students.

C.A.I.R.O.C.S.                          One of the issues the EU faces is the aging and declining of
Competenze per l’Apprendimento          working population. This phenomenon has serious
Intergenerazionale e Reti di            consequences at social and economic level. In view of this the
Opportunità per la Coesione Sociale     European Union is implementing policies and measures to

                                        within the purposes of the so-called policy for active aging and
                                        constitutes a fundamental pillar.

                                        'Traditional trades' are strategic for the socio-economic
                                        system. Their disappearance causes, among the other things:
                                        a) loss of professional and working opportunities, for adults, b)
                                        the loss of social, cultural, territorial values. For this reason

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium


TU/e Regional Leonardo Bureau (before UETP Zuid-Nederland) operates as a Consortium since
beginning 1990’s. The Consortium started with around 10 participating Universities but as of The
Leonardo II Program already some partners choose to go on by their own. Since the placements
moved to the ERASMUS Program the last Universities with bigger numbers left the Consortium.

Tens of projects are executed over the many years with the main focus on mobility projects for
students and graduates. Under the Leonardo I Project TU/e RLB once received the biggest allocation
for a mobility project in Europe. Another highlight was the nomination for the ‘Quality in Mobility
Award.

Furthermore TU/e RLB is active member of International (placement) Networks and (executive) board
member of Leo-Net and EMPLOI/EAIE. The other partners in the Consortium profit from that.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


Role of the coordinator:

•   Overall responsibility of the projects.
•   Contact partner for the NA (from application till final reports).
•   Focal point for the Consortium partners. TU/e RLB keeps her knowledge level regarding the
    Erasmus Program, relevant other Programs and national and European developments constantly
    updated. She then informs the participating universities tailor made.
•   Granting the students.

Role of the participating universities:

•   Quality check of foreseen placements (do they fit in the curricula and can ECTS be given for the
    placement).
•   To inform their students about the possibilities of the Erasmus Program.
•   Preparation of their students.
•   Monitoring of their students during the placement.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)


before the mobility:
We inform the students about everything what has to do with the grant they receive from us, including
the importance of having an adequate insurance. Furthermore we let them fill out the “Questionnaire
Linguistic and Cultural Preparation’ so that they get aware about the difference they will run in to and
in that way pay more attention to the preparation of their placement.




Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                   127
during the mobility:
We guide them through the various steps of the administrative process of the grant.

after the mobility:
We gather the forms, make the last payments.


b) Service offered for partner HEIs


before the mobility:
• We offer them the placement offers we receive via our Networks.
• We take care of everything which deals with the grant itself so they can concentrate on the
    content of every placement in collaboration with the students.

during the mobility:
• We ask our network partners abroad to assist in case there is problem.
• We guide their students through the various steps of the administrative process of the grant.

after the mobility:
We keep the files of all individual mobility’s.


c) Service offered for companies


local:
• We search for candidates for their offers, using our Network partners.
• We help them, in case relevant, to get prepared.
• We help them with other relevant issues.
abroad:
• In case relevant we will use our Network to help the companies in case of a problem.



Specific information on the consortium


TU/e RLB recently joint forces with a University of Applied Sciences, a School for secondary
Vocational Training and the Chamber of Commerce in the region of Brabant. Aim of this collaboration
is:
• To make the companies aware about the European Programmes as Erasmus and Leonardo da
    Vinci and thus the fact that they can receive trainees with a grant of the EC. A try-out event has
    just successfully taken place.
• To apply for a big European funding project, beginning 2011, to further developed the try-out
    phase and include more regions in Europe.
• To generate many more high quality placements European wide.

Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

Leader of the consortium
Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
coordinating organisation of the consortium


The Catholic University of Portugal in Porto is a HEI that comprises 6 Schools and 2 institutes: the
College of Biotechnology, the College of Law, the Faculty of Psychology, the School of Arts, the
School of Economics and Management, the Faculty of Theology, the Institute of Bioethics and the
Institute of Health Sciences. These Schools and Institutes offer Undergraduate courses, Master
Courses and Phd’s in these areas of knowledge.
With regard to work experience training, the Catholic University of Portugal in Porto has a 20-year
experience in sending students for internships abroad in a work environment, including through other
funding programs such as Leonardo da Vinci for mobility. In the two previous academic years, about
40 students from the School of Biotechnology - were selected within an individual application to this
program and having done mobility training periods at research centers and high reputation European
companies. The success of these placements encouraged and motivated the Catholic University of
Portugal - Porto, to submit a joint application to Erasmus Placement Consortium Program.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the

Our partners in the consortium are national institutions (companies, associations,schools...)



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)


before the mobility: The University is responsible for the educational, cultural, vocational and
language preparation of the beneficiaries before the beginning of the student’s mobility.
In cultural terms, the Catholic University feels that it is needed to prepare future beneficiaries. For
that, each year we organize two meetings:

a) The first involving students who have just returned from their mobility period and the ones that will
begin their internship in the following academic year. One of the objectives is to provide an
opportunity for the students who are returning to share their experiences with the ones that will go
away brifly. During this meeting important information about the host countries is conveyed.
After choosing the host country, students are advised to research information on habits and lifestyle
of that country.
b) The second meeting takes place before departure. The purpose of this meeting is to provide useful
information to beneficiaries and practical advice and professional (ie, behaviors to be adopted on the
desktop) for your stay in the body / host country.

The University is also in charge of requesting an extension for the school insurance (ie, personal
accident insurance and liability) to cover the period in which the student is abroad. Also, the service
will ensure that all students who leave for a mobility period abroad have their European card for
health insurance.

Specific information on the consortium


The Consortium CONCRP - Consortium for the Mobility of Catholic University of Portugal - Porto
Students currently comprises 32 national institutions diverse in sectors (Environment, Education,
Health, Culture, Arts, Regional Development, etc...) and nature (Companies, Government Agencies,
Foundations, Schools, Associations).


The main Objectives of this Consortium are:
1. To support the implementation of an International Mobility Program - Internships for
College Students.
This program is intended to provide Católica.Porto students an opportunity for a more comprehensive
education. This is possible through the integration and qualification in their training of an international
work experience by Erasmus funded international placements.

2. To Promote Cooperation between the University and the Companies
Católica.Porto has a long tradition regarding cooperation with companies. Some institutions
represented here have been our longtime partners in several projects such as:
· Involvement of companies delegates in assessment panels for students curricular projects;
· Corporate studies by Católic. Porto for these companies;
· Services to various companies under existing partnerships;
· Corporate involvement in the various initiatives promoted by Católica.Porto.

With this consortium we also aim to reinforce this cooperation through:
· Transfer of knowledge (acquired in international placements;
· Involvement in the setting of the training programs (in this way the partners make sure that the
programs are adjusted to the national labor market needs).

3. Strengthen the European and International dimension of the participants in the consortium
Although the Consortium of Católica.Porto has an essentially regional implantation, its performance
will be nationally and internationally, not only by the companies involved but also by the very structure
of the Catholic University and its international dimension, with more than 100 partner universities, only
in Europe.
We will publicize not only the University's national associates amongst the partner institutions but also,
the various works developed by the students as well as the results obtained within this program thus
projecting the consortium and its participants amongst all universities and European students.

European Area of Higher Education and reinforce the contribution of Higher Education and Advanced
Vocational Training to the process of innovation, trough, promoting European cooperation to
guarantee curricular quality, institutional cooperation (University/Enterprises) and work-programmes
and investigation.
UMa possesses 5 Competence Centres, organic units identified with internationally recognized
disciplinary areas and oriented towards curricular development of its investigators and its respective
areas.

UMa’s Competence Centres are: the Arts and Humanity Centre, the Exact Sciences and Engineering
Centre, the Social Sciences Centre, the Life Sciences Centres and finally the Health Technology
Centre. These 5 centres are a result of the addition of several existing Departments as well as the
Nursing High School. The Centres have as regulatory organs the Head, the Scientific Council (or
Technical-Scientifical in the Polytechnic Education), the Pedagogic Council and the Assembly.

UMa’s vision is to become an influential and internationally recognized of excellence center for
research and education in interactive technologies (creating new technological centers and new
projects) and to advance the strategic development of the University and of the Region of Madeira
through solutions and approaches with economic impact and scientific significance.
In pursuit of this vision, we strive to build national and international collaboration and partnerships
with business and industry as well as other research and educational institutions, seeking to develop
creative synergies between education and both practical research and exploratory development while
remaining firmly anchored in the realizable and the practicable.

Madeira is one of the autonomous outer regions of Portugal, and thus part of the European
Community. The University of Madeira is a young but ambitious university and has established a
strategic partnership with both regional and national industries as well as international colaborations.
Therefore, UMa aims in the near future to develop capacity in a sustainable setting that welcomes
interdisciplinary research and innovation in interactive systems and services through
communications, network, and information technologies, to advance education in the fields of human-
computer interaction and software engineering through international multidisciplinary graduate
programs that develop new leaders and pioneers, to explore and expand the potential of technology
to enhance human communication by designing and developing novel systems and services and by
investigating their use and effectiveness in real-world contexts and to bridge the gaps between
software engineering, interaction design, and service design by developing practical tools and
techniques, theory and practices centered on meeting genuine human needs and to offer a solid and
complete scientific and personal training to its trainees, acknowledging that social and cultural
diversity enhances the experience of all university members.

 Description of the ERASMUS Placement Consortium

 Leader of the consortium
 Description of the size, scope of work, areas of expertise and competence including the description of
 the experience and the specific expertise in the field of organising and managing placements of the
 coordinating organisation of the consortium

 The U. Porto has extensive experience in cooperation with foreign higher education institutions under
 European programmes such as Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci and others. It also has international
 cooperation agreements with several hundred universities from all over the world. It is also important
 to mention the relevant dynamic developed over the last years of promoting the cooperation with
 national and international business sector and enhancing areas of excellence and technology transfer.

 From 1989 until 2007, the U. Porto has participated in community projects of student mobility for
 placements, namely through the programme COMETT/Leonardo da Vinci I and II, always as partner of
 APGEI (Portuguese Association of Industrial Engineering and Management) in these projects. It has
 also received funding from other institutions such as Santander Group of Universities.

 During these years, though as partner institution, the U.Porto directly contacted the companies and
 managed the placements of its students. It was the institution responsible for the verification of goals
 and tasks to be performed by the trainees, ensuring the academic recognition of their mobilities.

 Since 2007, the U. Porto submitted itself the applications as coordinating institution within Leonardo
 da Vinci Programme. The applications submitted in 2007 and 2008 were approved. The application
 submitted in 2009 was not funded by the National Agency for unavailability of funds.

Together with the companies that form this consortium, the U.Porto is developing other activities,
namely in terms of business cooperation and technology transfer. Therefore, we are intending to
create, support and develop internship opportunities in European organizations (subsidiary or similar)
of interest, in order to encourage the existent relationships and favouring their active participation in
the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Programme.

By including this activity for internships in the Erasmus Programme, U. Porto has rapidly adapted to
this kind of mobility, presenting a significant growth over this last three years of participation,
facilitating the internationalization of its students.



Cooperation with partner HEIs
Description of the cooperation with the partner HEIs, the role of the partners in the consortium and the
tasks of the coordinator of the consortium.


This consortium is coordinated by the U. Porto and consists of 27 partners from different economic
sectors. The partner organizations are divided into two groups:

A) National organizations. Their role is to be facilitators for the contact and later sending of trainees to
affiliates or counterparts companies at European level, thus ensuring a wide range of opportunities for
training quality and strengthening the link between higher education and the labour market.

B) European organizations. Their main role is to be the host institutions for the applicants of the U.
Porto and secure the necessary conditions, location and quality of the internship.

In this context, the management of the consortium is made by the International Relations Office (SRI)
of the U.Porto, in collaboration with the different units and departments involved in implementing such
projects, either centrally or at faculty level, namely:

- SRI’s OUT Mobility Unit: dissemination of opportunities, management of the student mobilities for
placements and of funds allocated for payment of grants, dissemination of results;

- Services assigned to the Student Mobility (of each faculty): dissemination of opportunities,
applicants’ selection, monitoring of the trainees’ mobility;

- Financial and Patrimonial Management Unit of the U.Porto: payment of grants and monitoring of
project’s financial execution.

The dissemination of opportunities and the applications are articulated internally with the different
faculties of the university. The International Office is the coordinator of the project activities and the
contact point with the National Agency.

Within the project, the partners will ensure the fulfilment of the following activities:

- Establishment of the internship within the organization (departments/hosting unit, internship
conditions, dates of mobility, etc.);



Directory on ERASMUS Placement Consortia, DAAD, September 2011, V2                                          142
- Identification of the tutors of the internship within the organization;

- Definition of the objectives and tasks to be performed at each internship;

- Reception of trainees under appropriate conditions to successfully perform their period of mobility;

- Monitoring of the trainee for verification of the defined objectives in the Training Agreement and
Quality Commitment;

- Quantitative/qualitative evaluation of the tasks performed by the trainee, impact of the internship in
the company and possibilities for hosting new trainees.



Organisation of mobility and services offered by the consortium

a) Service offered for students (e.g. information on insurance, monitoring, language and cultural
preparation)


Before the mobility:
Information sessions are organized internally, as well as employability forums for the dissemination
and explanation about the project.

The U. Porto ensures the organization of annual and intensive courses language courses (German,
Danish, Spanish, Finnish, French, Hungarian, English, Dutch, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Swedish,
Turkish).

Concerning the socio-cultural preparation, it is expected to carry out informational/cultural briefings for
the following countries: Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy and Poland. These briefings
will be ensured by academic staff from these countries as well as by information specialists of
consular structures and international organizations.

All the applicants will receive the necessary support in organizing their mobility period, particularly with
regard to practical issues of travel preparation, visas (when necessary), extension of personal
accident and liability insurance (included in the student insurance) and European Card of Health
Insurance.

As for accommodation, the information provided by the partner organization will be given to the
internship, which will give appropriate support. In addition, a contact with U.Porto mobility students
and sections of ESN International in the same host city will be ensured, with a view to obtaining
accommodation and social/cultural integration.

During the mobility:
For monitoring and follow-up of the trainees, the U.Porto will keep regular contact with either the
student or tutor at his/her partner organization, in order to obtain information about the course of the
work in accordance with the established in the Training Agreement and Quality Commitment signed.

Monitoring will also be made to tutor follow-up, ensuring that the professional integration is the most
adequate and the purpose of mobility is achieved in order to give the necessary support if any
problems are identified.

After the mobility:
The validation of the acquired skills during the mobility will be made either by the host organization
and the U. Porto through the issuance of placement certificates.

The National Agency will issue the Europass Mobility document for each trainee that undertakes a
period of mobility, as long as he/she complies with all required procedures by the programme.
