Subject area code

Description                   IICS is a three-year interdisciplinary project that concerns areas of artistic participation
                              which receive insufficient attention and exposure in the curricula of HEIs. It aims to help
                              and encourage students from different disciplines to pool their skills, expand their abilities,
                              collaborate within and between the arts in innovative ways, and above all to work in a
                              social dimension, interacting with specific European local communities and urban
                              landscapes. Thirty students selected from ten European cities (and twelve partner schools)
                              will be divided into six transnational “working groups”, each consisting of five students from
                              different disciplinary fields. The subject areas of the selected students will embrace all the
                              widely varying branches of the arts, as well as areas of study in media, technology and
                              social sciences. The students will learn to assess the problems and needs of specific local
                              communities within a European city, to interact with the varying urban contexts, to evolve
                              creative ideas, and to implement them. At the same time they will develop communicative
                              and entrepreneurial skills through the promotion and documentation of their projects. The
                              activities will take place in two distinct phases: a Preparatory Period (using web-based
                              social media tools) during which the working groups research the architectural,
                              anthropological and social characteristics of the locations chosen for performance and
                              discuss possible solutions; and a ten-day Intensive Period in one city, divided between the
                              further deepening of knowledge and competences (field work, workshops and seminars),
                              the creative work (discussion, preparation, rehearsal and performance) and promotion
                              (press conference, promotional material and documentation). Each year the project will
                              take place in a different host city and with different students. In Year 2 the venue will be
                              Cork, Ireland.The ten teachers, one from each of the partner cities, are selected from
                              different subject areas and represent complementary skills, competences and approaches.
                              They will be assisted in the field by local experts recruited from the host city. They will not
                              only plan, supervise and monitor the students’ work, but also lay the foundations for
                              subsequent curriculum development in an insufficiently studied area.

Description                   The participating universities represent different societies with different welfare models.
                              Sweden represents the “Scandinavian Model”, Germany the “Continental Model” and
                              finally, Italy and Spain belongs to the “Mediterranean Model”. The social policy setting in
                              each welfare state type implies special preconditions regarding to regulation, administration
                              and delivery of social services and of course actors involved in our second IP on the MA
                              level is going to focus on the possibilities of comparing different welfare regimes regarding
                              on how social work handles contemporary changes and challenges. The intellectual
                              starting point will be to analyze and compare the life conditions in “Areas of Advanced
                              Marginality”, deprived areas/suburbs outside big cities in Sweden, Germany, Italy and
                              Spain. The second IP will in this sense be both a deepening and a concreteness of our
                              main subject of our IP. Different strategies for integration of selected target groups in our
                              four participating Countries will be discussed and analyzed. The method of Community
                              Work and its possibilities to integrate socially excluded groups and individuals will be of a
                              special interest during the entire course. The IP will include lectures, work groups and field
                              studies focusing on how social work deals with different “client groups” in poor and
                              deprived areas. Students from all four universities will be asked to carry out local surveys
                              about social work practice concerning following key groups; children/family, youth,
                              unemployed and migrants concerning integration. The students will work in country-mixed
                              groups. The innovative dimension of the intensive program is to bring it all together and
                              create a profound base for in depth and comparative learning. The first learning objective of
                              the IP is to mediate in-depth knowledge of the different “welfare regimes” and if Community
                              Work can function as an integrative possibility for socially excluded groups in Sweden,
                              Germany, Italy and Spain. The second learning objective comprehends a comparative
                              knowledge about the similarities and differences in these four countries concerning
                              strategies for integration of our selected target groups. The third learning objective of the IP
                              focuses of pedagogical strategies for students to integrate academic theory and social work
                              practice. To fulfill these goals we will arrange workshops in which our students present and
                              discuss written reports of local surveys about different client groups and their life conditions
                              in “areas of advanced marginality”. Mondo is an administrative/educational interface
                              developed by Stockholm University, which make it possible to share texts, create group
                              and individual messages and give information in an easy and rational way. Expected
                              outcomes of the course are the reports written by the students from Sweden, Germany,
                              Italy and Spain.

Subject area code

Description                   ObjectivesThe aim of the intensive programme is to introduce the students to the policies
                              towards inclusion in the participating countries (e.g. policy measures, field actions). These
                              policies will be related to existing general systems of the European welfare states. The aim
                              is also to address issues of human rights and empowering policies with an EU
                              dimension.Thematically, the focus is on social inclusion across the European union and
                              how it is promoted and realised by European policies and various local responses. The IP
                              provides a wide understanding and perspective of social policy issues (in this case
                              inclusion) which attracts social worker students, sociology students and students of social
                              policy and administration. The approach offers students the opportunity to get acquainted
                              with other European societies and to compare different approaches to social inclusion.
                              They will learn both from the variety and from the potential offered by co-ordinated
                              initiatives at EU-level (national action plans on social inclusion, ESF, etc.) but they will also
                              learn from each other, as they represent different disciplinary approaches to the study of
                              social policy issues.Target groupsThe target group of the IP are students and academics
                              from North, West, East and South-European countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, the
                              Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland). This IP is an academic exchange
                              programme for second year Bachelor students in Sociology, Social work and Social policy
                              studies. Every participating university sends five students and two academics.Main
                              activitiesThe structure of the programme consists of teachers’ lectures during mornings and
                              in afternoons students discuss in small mixed groups their view on the topic of the morning
                              lectures. The day ends with a plenary session where representatives of the groups present
                              the main outcomes of their discussions and students and academics discuss their views.
                              One to three days of the IP are devoted to field study visits to show students how social
                              policy is actually working and to give the students opportunity to have discussions with
                              professionals representing different parts and flelds of the society. Two types of written
                              assignments are given. Before the start of the IP, students elaborate a preparatory paper
                              with general information about the social situation in their country and specific information
                              about the inclusive policies. These papers are orally presented to the other students at the
                              beginning of the IP. A second written assignment is made at the end of the IP by the
                              discussion groups to summarise the learning experience in a joint final report. This report
                              is used by the participants to disseminate the outcomes of the IP to their fellow students in
                              the home university and is made publicly available through the website of the IP.Expected
                              outputs- The growth of students multidisciplinary understanding and knowledge on social
                              policy issues.- The enhancement of the students’ knowledge of social work inclusive
                              practices and exclusion prevention towards various groups in the margins of society. -
                              Improve students intercultural communication skills through hands-on experiences in
                              European decision making- An increase of student-, teacher mobility and
                              internationalisation at home universities. - Lecture notes, lecture videos and student reports
                              will be available at the IP website. They can be used for teaching purposes by the
                              academics involved, but evidently also for life long learning by any member of the Internet
                              community.Learning outcomes- An increased awareness of the challenges and
                              complexities of a unified European social policy.- A multidisciplinary understanding and
                              knowledge, bringing together sociologists, social policy scholars and social workers.-
                              Enhanced knowledge of social work inclusive practices and exclusion prevention towards
                              various groups in the margins of society. - Improved intercultural communication skills
                              through hands-on experiences in European decision making.Project website:

Description                   The objective of the programme is to give the student a deeper knowledge in the relation
                              between sustainable development and the economical/financial conditions on a global
                              scale. Topics to be discussed are e.g.:- Replacing GDP as a measure of progress.- Climate
                              Change and the Conditions for Industrial Transformation.- Clean Tech - Using Technology
                              to Change the World.Target groups include:- T.I.M.E. Master's students currently reading
                              for a double engineering degree and about to undertake their study abroad.- Engineering
                              students and students in associated fields from non-T.I.M.E. institutions.The main
                              prerequisities for being admitted are that the student has reached a Bachelor degree and
                              shows proof on good English skills (the language used is English at all campuses).The total
                              duration of the programme is 10.5 days, organized as follows:- 8 lecture days- 2 days for
                              study visits- 0.5 day for individual workEach lecture day starts with a 3 hours lecture during
                              the forenoon. After lunch, the teacher (located at one of the six organizing universities, the
                              location of the teacher is varied for the different lecture days) leads group discussions and
                              group exercises. The students have group presentations for each other at the different
                              campuses, through audio-visual web-based communication. The last item each day is to
                              provide the students with an individual assignment based on the lecture day’s topic.The
                              students’ group presentations are saved and filed in a web-based platform, making them
                              available for all students and teachers in the programme. The students’ individual
                              assignments are compiled by the operationally responsible persons at each campus.
                              These assignments are reviewed and graded by the current teachers after the
                              programme.Study visits related to the topic are performed in two days at each campus. In
                              the afternoon, they are presented for and discussed with the students at the other
                              universities via the web-based audio-visual communication tools used.The academic
                              recognition is based on active performance of each student during the lecture days,
                              through e.g. oral presentations and discussions and participation in development of
                              presentation material. The grades (A – F) are mainly based on the teachers’ review of the
                              individual assignments, one per lecture day. The programme awards 5 ECTS credits for
                              passed students.The objective with the course is to give the student a deeper knowledge in
                              both technical and non-technical issues concerning sustainability and its interaction with
                              economic issues.After the course the student should be able to:- Account for the general
                              principles of sustainability and how it interacts with economic conditions and restrictions.-
                              Account for the principles of large infrastructure systems, as e.g. transport and water
                              systems, related to sustainability and economics.- Describe alternative measurement tools
                              to GDP.- Account for the meaning of Clean Tech for a sustainable development.The

Description                   The majority of young Europeans spend a substantial amount of their time growing up in
                              the school environment. The school is therefore one of the key arenas for a young person’s
                              development. It is where they gain basic knowledge and develop the skills/competences
                              that they will need throughout their lives. It is also the place where young people develop
                              many of their fundamental attitudes and values, thus having the important task of imparting
                              those attitudes and values on which our society is based. Democracy forms within EU, the
                              basis of the school system. Therefore, all school activity should be carried out in
                              accordance with fundamental democratic values and encourage respect for both the
                              intrinsic value of each person and for our common environment. Education and in this
                              context, physical education (PE), is making an investment in the democratic future of
                              Europe and the world, by preparing young people for their role in society as individuals and
                              active, responsible citizens.The main objectives for the IP are to establish and exchange
                              knowledge and experiences in a European and intercultural perspective, to generate
                              greater insight, understanding and trust between the participants from a comparative
                              perspective. This includes a contribution in improving trainee PE teachers competence in
                              terms of teaching PE and sports for a sustainable society, i.e. working towards and
                              promoting an ethical, democratic and sustainable educational philosophy. From the
                              pedagogical-didactic viewpoint, the role and possibilities of PE will be studied in relation to
                              a sustainable society. Different countries educational system will be compared and
                              discussed. The target group consists of approximately 50 undergraduate students (3rd and
                              4th year) and 14 staff members from 10 departments of PE in universities situated in the
                              north of Europe.The main activities comprise work in multicultural focus groups, initiated by
                              a problem-based learning approach. Each focus group will follow the programme created
                              by the steering group of the network, working with a specific focus, linked to the theme for
                              the IP, that will have been established before the IP using ICT and chosen on the first day
                              of the IP. Other learning tasks will involve lectures, workshops, presentations, cultural and
                              other experiences that examine theory and practice. The varied, 10-day programme will
                              include visits to schools and/or sports clubs and exposure to alternative sports led by
                              various experts from partners and other organizations that will be involved in the
                              programme. Expected outputs from the IP are an enhanced ability to reflect critically on the
                              possible contribution of PE for a sustainable society and to describe the basic concepts of
                              national and European political ambitions and targets according to democracy and
                              sustainability. This includes the ability to critically reflect on school-related projects and the
                              evaluation of teaching materials that may contribute to a sustainable society. Alongside this
                              there will be opportunity to evaluate teaching methods based on experience of strategies
                              developed for establishing student-centered activities in school. Other expected outputs of
                              the IP will be increased mobility & ICT competence and an intercultural perspective which
                              will aid trust, tolerance and responsibility.

Description                   The main objective of the Intercultural Design Camp is to encourage students and staff
                              mobility in an intensive programme featuring the formation of interdisciplinary creative
                              teams composed of students from various institutions to engage with intercultural
                              communication, supported by a set of teaching staff from different critical and creative
                              standpoints across the four partner institutions. The central theme is the concept of cultural
                              and national identity and its strengths and limitations in the context of the development of
                              the European Union and wider global creative communities. Our approach is to critically
                              reappraise images of the host nation. Subsequently, repackage the host nation using
                              cross-media production technologies. Working on the themes Ecological issues &
                              sustainability / National and regional identity / Tourism and regional development / Cultural
                              expressions the design camp will encourage students to reflect critically on current images
                              and representations of the host nation and seek to “re-engineer” these. Students will work
                              together in cross-national teams to communicate their ideas and findings. This will increase
                              their mutual understanding of national and cultural attributes and help form a deeper
                              intercultural understanding. The intensive programme is for undergraduate students from
                              across Europe and students from fields such as graphic design, information design, media
                              design and media production technology are particularly targeted.The main educational
                              activity can be described as interactive project work involving peer-to-peer teaching and
                              assessment, guest lectures from industry participants, and specific technology, project
                              management and design coaching by university lecturers from the project partners. We
                              expect the intensive programme to have lasting effects on the participating students. One
                              outcome will be to develop and test different models for new intercultural approaches to
                              marketing and communication through the production of cross-media digital artefacts.
                              Previous collaborative student project work from pilot projects in Germany and Scotland
                              indicates that the intensive programme will serve as an effective catalyst for continuing
                              international interdisciplinary collaboration.Expected learning outcomes for participating
                              students is: to give insight into the differences in communication approaches due to cultural
                              differences; to gain a better understanding of culture and to identify ways in which culture
                              influences communication; to be able to research, identify and report on cultural diversity
                              and difference; to be able to research, identify and report on features of culturally specific
                              communication; to be able to recognize and analyse the relationships among culturally held
                              values and cultural standards for behaviour.Project website: http://www.designcamp.eu/

Description                   The IP YPIF will study youth identity and challenges to it in the context of the modern world
                              using a multidisciplinary approach. The aim of this IP is to thematically and
                              methodologically plan and implement an innovative and sustainable multicultural learning
                              experience in the study of identity related issues from a multidisciplinary perspective in
                              order to provide students with an understanding of how ongoing globalization processes
                              affect constructions of identities and psychological functioning. By focusing on specific
                              groups (youth at risk of exclusion, migrant youth, etc.) the Intensive Program also aims to
                              contribute to building up the necessary human capital with an ability to deeper understand
                              and solve practical problems given by living in multicultural societies in Europe. The
                              objectives are: (1) to design and test a ’state of art’ multidisciplinary curriculum on the study
                              of identity (sexual, gender, educational, vocational, political, community, cultural and ethnic
                              etc.) in the context of globalization; (2) to develop course materials for teaching and
                              learning identity phenomena from multidisciplinary perspective for use by each of the
                              partners; (3) to deepen and broaden professional understanding of the effectiveness of
                              comparative interdisciplinary intercultural approaches in studying identity related issues in
                              the context of globalization; (4) to promote mobility of students and staff across Europe,
                              and to establish links between instructors and students; (5) to contribute towards University
                              excellence and competitiveness of the European Higher Education system.The target
                              group is 1st cycle Bologna students enrolled in Bachelor program in Social and Behavioral
                              sciences in their home countries. Activities: the course will combine specialized lectures
                              (50%) and international groups of students working on assignments based on reading
                              materials to be presented for group discussions (50%). At the end of the course and after
                              examination (final reports), each IP student will be accredited 6ECTS, recognized by the
                              home university and included in their final Bachelor graduation document (i.e. diploma
                              supplement).A multidisciplinary perspective taught by teachers and researchers form
                              various scientific disciplines as well as different universities will provide the students with
                              an insight into identity related issues in the context of globalization as well as a deeper
                              understanding of sustainable practices. Students will acquire a better interdisciplinary
                              approach to solve scientific problems, and possibility for students and teachers from
                              different countries to meet and exchange ideas will strengthen relationships between
                              universities which will be beneficial for the world of research.

Description                   The curriculum of the GRiM Winter School (legaltheory.eu - see section "GriM") aims to
                              provide meta-skills in legal education and professional legal training, such as legal
                              information management skills, legal research management skills and ICT skills for
                              lawyers. These skills will be especially important for (future) legal teachers. Excellence in
                              research, therefore, should contribute in educating future teachers and practitioners and
                              accordingly modernize legal education and foster the cooperation between higher
                              education institutions and enterprises as well as the connection between research and
                              teaching. Professionals facing the challenges of a more integrated European service
                              market as well as teachers emphasizing modernization of legal education in a more
                              integrated and globalized legal system, should able to use contents and procedures taught
                              in the GRiM Winter School in order to work and participate effectively and successfully on
                              the global market in legal services.The increasing complexity and transnational impact on
                              legal systems including the rise of PIL cases, the need and fostering application of
                              comparative law, the European dimension and Europeanization of many fields of law,
                              question the restriction of legal education to so-called "traditional" subjects, such as the
                              positive domestic law provisions of the Member States. Due to this stronger emerging
                              complexity and internationality of practical work as well as legal research, and, additionally,
                              the vast amount of materials emerging but also becoming available, first, the way of legal
                              reasoning will adapt to these developments, and, second, the use of technical applications
                              will be even more necessary to a very large extent. Education has to pay attention and
                              focus on these changes. In order to understand the this issues and to be prepared for the
                              scientific and practical international environment, students should acquire essential skills in
                              legal information management, but additionally in legal writing skills, ICT and research
                              management.The main target group of the GRiM Winter School are future legal academics
                              and teachers of law. Acquired awareness and knowledge, therefore, can be implemented
                              into the education in different Member States, using the angle of educating teachers.
                              Experience automatically is assessed and, to a certain instant, included in their teaching.
                              This should be fostered through exchange with practice in order to provide to future
                              teachers, additionally an image of the practices’ needs.Successful participants of the GRiM
                              Winter School are awarded a LiME certificate. LiME is the first European certificate on legal
                              information management education. As will be outlined below (5.2.2), GRiM contributed
                              successful to the development of the LiME certificates contents. LiME assesses programs
                              but, additionally promotes quality insurance by setting uniform standards. Mobility of
                              participating teachers, researchers or practitioners is enhanced through the multinational
                              certificate and quality assurance which established international standards. In addition, the
                              LiME certificate facilitates a predictable learning outcome for participants.

Description                   In the last years, the mobile phones have developed in a radical way, from a more or less
                              traditional phone to what we today name a smart phone, equipped with functions, capacity,
                              and applications, that for a rapidly increasing number of people more or less replaces the
                              use of a lap-top or desk-top computer. Beside the market for development of the hardware,
                              the phone, we can see an explosive development in the area of designing and constructing
                              new small, smart applications, usually referred to as “apps”, for these devices. Designing
                              and constructing applications for a smart phone requires a different approach to the
                              interface and interaction design due to, among others, the limited screen size of those
                              devices. The rapid growth in usage of smart phones and “apps” in everyday life could
                              result in a change where e.g. public service providers redirect the priority of development of
                              public e-services from “traditional” computers to “apps” for smart phones. To forestall a
                              backlash in the ongoing closing of what often is referred to as the digital divide, which could
                              be a result of such a change, is to design “apps” that could be personalised and also apply
                              a “Design for All” approach. This IP has two major objectives. The first is to increase the
                              students’ insight, knowledge and skills in this emerging area in which many of them
                              probably will take an active part as future IT professionals, but also to give the participating
                              students a better understanding of the principles of “Design for All” applied to such mobile
                              applications. The second objective is to improve the students training in project planning,
                              management and work, but also in outsourcing and in working in an international
                              environment. In addition to this the students will of course also gain valuable experiences
                              from the meeting with students and lecturers from other countries and cultures. The IP will
                              meet these objectives by a case-based approach that focuses on the design and
                              development of an “app” for a smart phone. We have chosen the tourist industry as the
                              application area for the students’ task. The motive for this choice is two-folded; firstly, it is
                              a prioritised research and development area within the EU (see e.g. the research
                              programme CRUMPET – Creation of User-friendly Mobile services Personalised for
                              Tourism); and secondly, it will give the students a small insight in all partner universities’
                              campus towns. To realise these ideas, the students will work with an “app” development
                              assignment during the IP. The assignment will consist of three parts of which two should
                              be fulfilled at the home university before the two intensive weeks. Every national team of
                              students should develop a new “app” for a Local Based Service, LBS, suitable for tourist
                              visiting the town where the team’s campus is situated. The different student teams get
                              different target groups on which they should focus the design. This target groups could be
                              e.g. elderly, disabled, skilled or non-skilled users, backpackers, etc. The first part of the
                              assignment “at home” is to write specifications of an “app” that guides the dedicated group
                              of tourists to the top-ten attractions in the city. The specification will then be sent
                              (outsourced) to one of the other teams for the realising of the “app”. The second part of the
                              assignment is to build and implement the “app” based on the specification made of the
                              “contractor” team. The last part of the task will take place during the two intensive weeks
                              when the students present and discuss their results in mixed nationality groups. In order to
                              strengthen the learning outcome the two intensive weeks will include relevant guest
                              lectures, workshops, and lectures given by the participating teachers. A web site for the
                              IP will be created during spring 2012.
