Aurora – Towards Modern and Innovative Higher Education
This project aims at promoting university-business cooperation in the Consortium. Aurora builds on an agenda of higher education institutions and business benefiting from working together. In this context, universities need to develop partnerships with enterprises in order to be able to respond better on the demands of markets. Aurora develops management capacity of Partner Universities e.g. sharing good practices on mobility and mobility administration; creating transparent, democratic and open administration processes that enhance mutual responsibility and accountability in the decision-making processes; and improving transparency and recognition of studies and qualifications. For the participating institutions Aurora will include increased capacity for international cooperation and modernization; transfer and sharing of knowledge and innovations between education institutions and business; foster universities’ role in regional economy; long-term partnerships and profitable opportunities. Project is coordinated by the University of Turku in Finland and funded within Erasmus Mundus Program implemented by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.
