A series of talks, meetings and workshops were held at Aston University for 27 representatives from the consortium running the Harmony project. Running for three years, the Harmony project’s focus is to improve the development of approaches to the harmonisation of internationalisation strategies in Higher Education, research and innovation in EU countries and Armenia, Belarus and Russia.
The first day’s events included sessions delivered by the Research Enterprise Office, the Careers + Placements Centre and the Centre for Learning Innovation and Professional Practice (CLIPP), to showcase what internationalisation looks like at Aston University. The second and third day of the workshop were devoted to methodology development and to in‐depth analysis on delivered work package outputs.
The Harmony project is funded through the Erasmus+ 'Key Action 2: Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices' programme, which focuses on enabling organisations to work together on sharing, developing and transferring innovative practices in education between different countries.
