Arqus opens the Twinning call 2021/2022
Arqus Twinning aims to strengthen the subject-related collaboration of staff and students and create possibilities to carry out joint learning and teaching activities through piloting short-term mobility schemes with a priority in Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) and STEM disciplines.
Twinning is perceived as the mobility of a team, consisting of 1 teacher and 3-6 students, moving to another partner institution within the same subject area. The length of the visit is 3-5 days (+2 additional days for travel).
Twinning activities may vary in mode and type. They may include internships, group trips, participation in international contests, joint workshops, summer schools, group projects, etc. Twinning activities might be implemented through regular (physical) or blended Twinning activities.
Examples of possible Twinning activities:
Read here an interview with Leyre Morgado, a student of the Master’s Programme in Archaeology at the University of Granada that completed a Twinning stay at the University of Padua.
The Alliance has agreed on general financial terms upon which the calculations of travel and subsistence costs are made. The maximum project funded grant may be awarded for a group consisting of 1 teacher and up to 6 students:
