Med2IH Consortium Meetings: look back at flagship projects in the Euromed region

Miscellaneous announcements

As part of the activities of the “Erasmus+, Capacity building in Higher Education (CBHE)” project held by the MED2IaH program The MEDiterranean countries: Towards Internationalization at Home , the Euromed University of Fez received a delegation made up of specialists and experts to update on the project roadmap and take stock of the key achievements of this program. Pr. Nada Trunk, Research Professor and advisor at EMUNI “The Euro-Mediterranean University of Slovenia” opened the workshop with an overall presentation of the project.

An example of MED2IaH's initiatives is "The Student Boot Camp", a competition relating to the narration of an intercultural experience, in video format, which targeted 34 students from the Euromed region: Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan. The best projects won a trip to Piran, Slovenia, to meet other students from: The Euromed University of Slovenia (EMUNI). Through this bootcamp, selected students had the opportunity to attend modules to deepen intercultural knowledge, innovation, leadership, creativity and project management.

The MED2IaH project aims to anchor the concept of internationalization at home in the universities of nine countries in the Euro-Mediterranean region: Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan, Slovenia, Italy, Spain and France.

From Morocco, the project sees the participation of three universities in the Fez-Meknes region, namely the EuroMed University of Fez, the Moulay Ismail University of Meknes, and the Al Akhawayn University of Ifrane who combine their efforts and knowledge to ensure the success of the project and jointly promote the Euro-Mediterranean cultural heritage. Ultimately, the involvement of these three Moroccan universities, with the support of the Erasmus+ Morocco Office, should make it possible to develop and design an “ Internationalization at Home” , tailor-made and adapted to the Moroccan context.

This event was also intended for teachers, students and administrative staff of the UEMF.
