A monitoring visit to the CBHE project MED2IaH took place virtually on February 19, 2021.
MED2IaH (Towards Internationalisation at Home) project is designed to have an impact at system level and trigger reform processes at national level in Mediterranean Partner Countries. Policymakers will receive support for evidence-based policy development and better regulation to move towards the modernisation of framework conditions for Higher Education (HE) in PCs. HEI managers and other stakeholders in the sector will be able to feed their expertise into the reform process and articulate their needs already at the stage of policy development. By developing policies that adequately address real problems at institutional level in each PC, MED2IaH will ultimately benefit the whole HE sector. The inclusion of all stakeholders (management, academic and administrative staff at universities, students) in project activities and consortia ensures that the whole HE sector in Partner Countries will take a step forward towards national reforms, which is a success factor.
MED2IaH project involves LIU and AU from Lebanon and other institutions from Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Jordan and it involves from Europe Euro-Mediterranean University (Slovenia), European Policy Development and Research Institute (Slovenia), University of Montpellier (France) and Fundación Universitaria San Antonio (Spain).
This monitoring visit was an occasion for the team to meet representatives from the Lebanese partners and from the project’s coordinating institution to learn more about the progress made so far and the results achieved.
