College of Applied Sciences “Lavoslav Ružička”in Vukovar as a project holder, as well as partner HEIs involved in project with this project for individual student and staff mobilities 2018-1-HR01-KA107-047219 continued to develop their internationalization of education and achieve their strategic goals in the field of international cooperation. Despite Covid -19 they succeeded, to implement most of the planned mobilities, moreover at the end it is realized quantitative higher number of mobility than envisaged by the project. In order to maximize the use of funds available to candidates for mobility, due to difficult conditions for the implementation of mobility because of preventive and security measures, the project implementation period was extended by 12 months.
Within the project, it is realized 34 mobilities out of 23 envisaged in the project application, while an additional 5 mobilities due to the COVID-19 situation were completely canceled. Through the mobility realized by the project, in addition to the achieved quantitative results related to the objectives of the Development Strategy of the project HEI applicant and its Erasmus Charter, qualitative effects were observed, primarily related to raising awareness of mobility and the benefits they bring between staff and students as end users of HEIs and project. With implemented STA mobilities in both direction, it is realized by project wanted “Internationalization at home” as well as their impacts on students at all five HEIs that are involved in project. By this accomplished project results, it contributes to the development of mindset and openness, as well as raising awareness of the importance of intercultural skills not only for future professional but also for personal life of students. Through incoming STA international experiences are transferred through the incoming mobility of students, as most of them still do not participate in the mobility and do not have the opportunity to acquire these experiences and transversal skills abroad.
Visible effect achieved as Long-term project impact for in project involved HEIs is advanced internationalization, improved international activities, which resulted from the project such as for the project holder VEVU, which has upgraded its strategic development directions, especially in terms of foreign language course development. While partner institutions are also more active in the field of Erasmus + activities, and increased the number of new partnerships at their institutions, with special emphasis on project partner institutions from the Republic of Serbia, who in the meantime have become holders of the ECHE charter. Furthermore, the VEVU started cooperation with a new institution in the partner country Georgia, so the resulting effect of this project was reflected in improving the development of the institution’s capacity too, which is visible through the opening of cooperation between VEVU and other institutions in partner countries which are not linguistically related. Following this the long-term impact from this project is the improvement of the development of international cooperation of VEVU, which was one of the long-term goals of the VEVU’s Erasmus Policy Statement for the period 2014-2020 which was realized at the end of the Erasmus+ program until 2020.
