The FRAMES project aims to foster an harmonised implementation and accreditation of Virtual Exchange, as an integral part of (blended) mobility approaches, among European Higher Education Institutions, making the European Higher Education Area more innovative, intercultural and resilient.

The project stems from the impact that the COVID-19 emergency is having on students mobility flows, and wants to help European universities to rethink students mobility in innovative ways, both regarding the use of digital technology to complement and enrich traditional mobility, and to use mobility to build important soft skills such as intercultural communication, teamwork and critical thinking. 

The project activities are centered around:

  • capacity building of the internationalisation and support staff of university in charge of integrating and accrediting innovative blended mobility activities
  • a multiplication mechanism to extend the project results to any interested university in the EU and beyond
  • a blended mobility integration framework that targets decision makers within universities
Why Virtual Exchange?
