Last chance to be a part of the EMREX Field Trial and have your say about the future direction of EMREX

The Field Trial is ending August 31st and you now have your last chance to include students from your HEI in the testing of the tool. The future development of EMREX will be based on the feedback from the field trial and thus depends on your and your students’ opinions!

Stakeholder Forum and Seminar

The EMREX project arranged its second EMREX Seminar in Helsinki 31 January 2017. At our second open seminar we discussed the project status and how it works. Vice President Toni Tamminen and President Miia Vaara from ESN Finland had a much appreciated presentation about the student´s view of mobility. Furthermore Ylva Sundmark, Graduation Officer from Högskolan Dalarna in Sweden, gave the administrators view. There were also time for discussions among the different countries and partners taking part in this policy project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

You can find all slides from the Seminar here http://emrex.eu/?page_id=900

The second Stakeholder Forum was held 1.2.2017 in Helsinki http://emrex.eu/?page_id=902

The stakeholders felt EMREX is an important step towards automatic recognition and stressed the importance of continuing spreading EMREX to new EU countries, like Germany, France and Spain, and also to work together with EWP and others to add support for course catalogues, grade conversion etc.

Denmark

The Danish NCP is now tested by students and is hopefully in full production soon.
