Many organisations are not yet ready to face the challenges of European work. They often lack knowledge about the opportunities that a process of Europeanisation or internationalisation can provide. The free self-assessment tool, which was developed within the framework of the EU project ‘Europeanisation’, offers concrete assistance and supports educational institutions on their journey in a European direction.
The free online self-assessment tool enables organisations that focus on ‘vocational education’ or ‘adult education’ to test how well prepared they are for European work and where there is a need for them to take further action. They can also receive practical information about the process of Europeanisation, as well as success stories from organisations about their journey in European direction.
The self-assessment offers organisations three fundamental blocks of information:
- an overview of which topics are pertinent for an organisation’s development in a process of Europeanisation
- where your organisation currently stands in this process and
- individual recommendations for action on that basis
Alongside the self-assessment, the ‘Europeanisation’ information platform offers comprehensive information about the opportunities and challenges of Europeanisation, as well as tips for successful internationalisation.
To definitively ascertain the need of educational institutions for a strategic European focus, a Europe-wide online survey was conducted with 520 participants from around 30 countries for the development of the self-assessment tool.
The results of the online survey are summarised in a document entitled:
“The Benefits and Challenges of Internationalisation / Europeanisation Strategies for Educational Institutions”
Alongside the EU-Fundraising Association, the other partners in the project ‘Europeanisation’ were emcra GmbH (Leadpartner, Germany), the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Csongrád County (CSMKIK, Hungary), the Cyprus Project Management Society (CPMS, Cyprus), the German Association – Landsmannschaft of the Danube Swabians in Croatia (GA, Croatia), the European Center for Quality (ECQ, Bulgaria) and the Institute for Postgraduate Studies (IPS, Bulgaria).
