2019 EAIE President's Award to the SUCTI Project

 23 August 2019


We are proud to report that the SUCTI Project has been awarded the prestigious EAIE President's Award in recognition of its dedication to its "remarkable work and dedication to international higher education".

The project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, focuses on the training of administrative staff to become key players in the internationalisation of higher education as part of Systemic University Change Towards Internationalisation (SUCTI). Coordinated by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain), this three-year project has involved eight higher education institutions and associations over Europe, including Universtià Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. The project's activities have developed awareness among administrative staff of their distinct roles in the process of internationalisation and have empowered them in their work. The training activities are delivered by teams of trainers trained as part of the project, which foresees a continuation once the project finishes.

The project has now received approval by the Erasmus+ Programme to proceed towards a second step with initiatives for academic staff with regard to their role in the internationalisation of higher education.
