Stu­dents real­ized their study vis­its on the basis of a pre-con­cluded Learn­ing Agree­ment. Obtain­ing at least 20 ECTS cred­its per semester was required for a suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of study stays. Con­cern­ing teach­ing stays of aca­dem­ic staff, the real­iz­a­tion of at least 8 teach­ing hours per week was required. The train­ing of employ­ees was aimed at gain­ing new know­ledge and exper­i­ence in the area of inter­na­tion­al rela­tions and cooper­a­tion. All the real­ized mobil­it­ies have been bene­fi­cial for all the par­ti­cipants, all par­ti­cip­at­ing uni­ver­sit­ies and the loc­al envir­on­ment as well. Dur­ing their study vis­its, the stu­dents gained addi­tion­al pro­fes­sion­al know­ledge in their study fields. This know­ledge and exper­i­ence gained in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent envir­on­ment also lead to their per­son­al­ity growth and enhance their employ­ab­il­ity in the labour mar­ket. For­eign study stays also improve lan­guage skills and con­trib­ute to get­ting to know oth­er cul­tures. Teach­ing stays of aca­dem­ic staff have helped to gain new know­ledge that can be used at home uni­ver­sit­ies, to expand con­tact data­bases and to intensi­fy cooper­a­tion in the form of nego­ti­at­ing fur­ther pro­ject activ­it­ies. Staff train­ing enabled shar­ing inform­a­tion and trans­fer­ring exper­i­ence in the area of ten­der­ing and oth­er pro­ced­ures related to mobil­ity pro­cessing. These activ­it­ies in turn con­trib­uted to improv­ing the per­form­ance and man­age­ment of depart­ments deal­ing with inter­na­tion­al rela­tions at the two uni­ver­sit­ies which real­ized the train­ings. Some of the train­ings were fol­lowed up by mon­it­or­ing of stu­dents. All the mobil­ity flows have con­trib­uted to cre­at­ing a mul­ti­cul­tur­al envir­on­ment at all par­ti­cip­at­ing uni­ver­sit­ies, build­ing their repu­ta­tion and help­ing to gain wider aware­ness of the coun­tries and cit­ies involved.
