Aims of JoinEUsee > PENTA
The Erasmus Mundus JoinEUsee > PENTA project operates in accordance with the objectives of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 programme. It strives to contribute to the achievement of better understanding and mutual enrichment between the European Union and third countries in the field of higher education and society at large.
The project does not only offer scholarship holders the opportunity to expand their academic competencies, language skills as well as social and intercultural competencies, thus improving their employability in an ever faster changing society. The work done in the context of the project aims to consolidate the academic as well as the political, cultural and economic cooperation between the EU and Western Balkan countries and within the target region.
Through the mobility and the resulting transfer of knowledge, qualifications and skills, the advancement of the Bologna Process reforms will be facilitated and grantees as well as their institutions will benefit from the mutual experience in academic, cultural and economic terms. This will contribute to the development of highly-qualified human capital, capacity building in the higher education institutions (through the fostering of the management capacities of the universities involved) and the real participation of society at large (guaranteeing the participation of students in a vulnerable situation).
