EMREX Stakeholder Forum 2017

13th October 2016

The second EMREX Stakeholder Forum was held in Helsinki 1 February 2017.

The participant list is hereand the this is the EMREX_Stakeholder Forum_Summary_2017 of the event.

The meeting was at the Ministry of Education and Culture, Meritullinkatu 1 in Helsinki.

The EMREX Stakeholder Forum is set up to ensure that our project is aligned with the needs of the higher education institutions as well as with other similar initiatives and collaborations across Europe. The Stakeholder Forum provides you with the opportunity to make your voice heard and have a say on the work we are doing, and the way we are doing it.

 

Topics to be discussed in the EMREX Stakeholder Forum:

  • Should we be satisfied with our results so far? Is the project meeting its goals, or is there something you feel is missing that we could still add?
  • What can we do to get more students to use EMREX before the Field Trial is over? This has turned out to be the most difficult part of the field trial. There is very limited student exchange between the Nordic countries (including Italy)
  • What should the future of EMREX look like? Should we apply for an extension to the project to expand the network within EU? Should we co-operate with countries outside EU? Opening dialogue has been started with the US, China and Australia. Are there any other countries outside of Europe that we should focus on? Join forces with Erasmus Without Paper (or/and other similar projects)? Add EMREX to admission systems?
