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.
