The basic aim of the cooperation programme in Baden-Württemberg is to promote the exchange of expert personnel from the field of university administration from the EU-13 states and the partner countries of the Strategy for the Danube Region with Baden-Württemberg and thereby make an important contribution to European cooperation and to the expansion of networks. The programme is intended to improve the performance of research administrations in the European research environment (capacity building). Another aim is to broaden the knowledge base in research and innovation through mutual learning and to increase participation in excellent EU research and innovation activities.
The programme will enable the participants from the EU-13 states and the partner countries of the Strategy for the Danube Region to gain insight into the higher education and research environment in Baden-Württemberg and to establish or deepen their relationships with partners from Baden- Württemberg. Both sides shall have the opportunity to get to know the other research environment better and to develop ideas for joint projects.
The goal is to give the participants deeper insight into the procedures, framework conditions and possibilities of cooperation in EU programmes. The cooperation programme is divided into two parts. During the first part, the participants will visit Baden-Württemberg from 5th to 9th November 2018. This first part is organized by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg in cooperation with Baden- Württemberg International, and its aim is to inform about the higher education and research environment in Baden-Württemberg. The one-week programme will include visits to research facilities and to the different types of higher education institutions in Baden-Württemberg: universities, universities of applied sciences, universities of education, the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University and universities of art and music. During the second part in November 2019, the universities and institutions visited during the first part will offer the participants a two-week work shadowing programme.
