Arqus Twinning aims to strengthen 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 to 6 students, moving to another partner institution within the same subject area. Length of the visit is 3 to 5 days (+2 additional days for traveling).

Twinning activities may vary in their mode and type. They may include internships, group trips, participation in international contests, joint workshops, summer schools, group projects, etc.

These activities might be implemented through regular (physical) or blended Twinning activities. For example:

1) 6 students of sociology and their teacher from Bergen travel to Granada for 5 days to have workshops with their counterparts and compare societal interactions in different countries.

2) Students of a business administration programme in Vilnius are working virtually on a common practical project together with students from Leipzig. At the end of the project, the teacher from Vilnius travels to Leipzig for 3 days with 6 students to complete and present results of the project to a business company.

Funding:

The maximum project funded grant may be awarded for a group consisting of 1 teacher and 6 students:

  • Travel costs: 400 EUR per person.
  • Individual support: 120 EUR per day, covering the whole duration of visit (3-5 days+2 additional days for travel (days of travel will be covered partially – 50%)).
