EMREX is supporting student mobility, and it is already here – come and see how it works!

 

 

 

The EMREX project arranged its second EMREX Seminar in Helsinky 31 January 2017.

 

List of participants

 

Why and how to participate

 

EMREX is the solution for electronic transfer of achievements records between higher education institutions in Europe. The Field Trial is now rolling on, and exchange students are digitally transferring their achievement recorts between institutions in Norway, Sweden Finland and Italy – with Denmark soon to come. What is the actial status? Does it work? what do the students think about EMREX? If you’re not already on board –  how do you join?

 

At our second open seminar we will try to answer all these questions, but also have 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.

The main entrance is situated on the east side of the Arcada building, in the intersection of Tuokolankatu and Toukaloankuja, next to Jan-Magnus Janssonin aukio. Tram 6 (Arabia – Hietalahti) or 8 (Arabia – Saknusaari) provides an easy and comfortable ride to and from downtown Helsinki in about 20 minutes. The stop nearest Arcada is Kyläsaarenkatu. A suggestion is to take tram 6 from outside the main railway station to Arcada.

 

The seminar is free of charge, but participants are expected to cover their own travelling and accomodation expenses.
