Conference: IMPI internationalisation toolbox

28.02.2012
The IMPI internationalisation toolbox will be launched and discussed at a public conference in Brussels on 10 May 2012.

The toolbox is the key outcome of the Indicators for Mapping and Profiling Internationalisation project. Based on a range of indicators, it maps the internationalisation activities of European higher education institutions (HEIs), presents individual internationalisation profiles and makes results measurable and comparable.

The IMPI project is coordinated by CHE Consult and conducted with five European partners (ACA, CampusFrance, Nuffic, Perspektywy and SIU). The project is financed by the European commission.

A good international reputation is important. European HEIs are therefore investing increasingly more effort and money into internationalisation activities and the expansion of international relations and contacts. Measuring internationalisation has become a priority at many HEIs.

However, how can homogenisation be avoided? How can individual internationalisation profiles be maintained at the same time as producing measurable results? These are some of the questions and concerns the IMPI project and toolbox are trying to answer. The toolbox has been developed and tested in co-operation with more than 40 HEIs from over ten European countries.

Project leader Uwe Brandenburg said: “The symposium offers a unique opportunity for internationalisation experts to learn how the toolbox works in practice. It can be used for two purposes: an institutional self-assessment and inter-institutional benchmarking throughout Europe.” Participants can learn from the institutions that have been primarily involved in the development of the tool. The toolbox can be accessed for free online.

The conference will also focus on the internationalisation issues HEIs are facing now and in the near future. The programme will also address two interesting topics on related themes, namely Maunimo and Ahela. “I hope the conference will become a platform for obtaining a clear and detailed perspective on the internationalisation of the European higher education system“ said Brandenburg.

The conference will take place in Brussels and will be organised by the ACA. The programme is available on the ACA website. Those interested in attending can register directly with the ACA.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Die Europäische Weltraumagentur ESA gab heute grünes Licht für die industrielle Produktion von PLATO, der grössten europäischen wissenschaftlichen Mission zu Exoplaneten. Partner dieser Mission sind die Universitäten Bern und Genf.

Die Europäische Weltraumagentur ESA lanciert heute PLATO (PLAnetary Transits and Oscillation of stars), die grösste europäische wissenschaftliche Mission zur...
