International Mobility and Cooperation through Digitalisation 

Access to and participation in research and higher education are becoming increasingly global. Physical mobility coupled with virtual access, teaching and cooperation options open up potential for rapid structural change with fundamental shifts in learning, knowledge and skills acquisition, as well as for international cooperation opportunities. Thus, universities get innovative possibilities to develop physical and virtual mobility opportunities for their students across borders with appealing partners and to offer students clearly structured and administratively secured forms of digital participation in international educational programmes, also as a way to attract highly qualified international students. This results in the sustainable development of local teaching and learning conditions and in the establishment of new forms of international cooperation. Among other things, this requires an increased alignment of teaching and students’ mentoring to the model of the Student Journey.

In order to support the internationalisation and profile development of German universities through the digitalisation of teaching and student mobility, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) relies on the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to fund the "International Mobility and Cooperation through Digitalisation" programme.
