MAKE IT WORK! INTEGRATING VIRTUAL MOBILITY IN INTERNATIONAL WORK PLACEMENTS.
International work placements or internships, as they are generally known, are gaining more and more importance in the context of internationalization of higher education and globalization of our (professional) world.
The EU-VIP (Enterprise-University Virtual Placements) project looked at how virtual mobility can support or even enable international work placements. EU-VIP officially ended 30 September 2011. All results are collected on the recently updated website.
Main findings were also published in a manual which provides a framework for and a description of the conditions of success for integrating virtual mobility in international internships. Next to this the manual also defines the context and definitions used in the EU-VIP project and it presents the conclusions regarding the perspectives from the different stakeholders: students, higher education institutions and companies.
For those interested in the topic but have not time to read the full document a quick guide is available in English, Dutch, Italian, Polish, Finnish, Danish and German.
