2019-1-CZ01-KA107-061099

The mutual project of the Kyiv National Economic University (KNEU) and the Faculty of Business and Management, Brno University of Technology (FBM BUT) is based on long-term cooperation in the field of science and research on an individual basis under the contract of 2018.

The main aim of the project is to provide both students and academics with the opportunity to extend their existing knowledge and skills at a partner university, strengthen the existing relations in the field of education, science and research and thanks to the intense cooperation of teachers, create the joint “Information Security Management” master study programme (Double degree). In the field of science, we will solve issues related to information security together

The following types of mobility are planned within the project:

  • Study stay of KNEU doctoral students at BUT – two PhD students will come to FBM BUT for the period of three months in total. 
  • Study stay of FBM BUT doctoral students at KNEU – two PhD students will go to KNEU for the period of three months in total. 
  • Training stay of FBM BUT teachers at KNEU – four members of FBM BUT staff will go to a 10-day training stay at the partner university
  • Training stay of KNEU teachers at FBM BUT – four members of KNEU staff will go to a 10-day training stay at the partner university.

FBM BUT will benefit from the interaction and exchange of knowledge between the foreign and domestic students and academics, their joint scientific and research activities, etc. Moreover, the expected benefit of the cooperation is an increase in the number of student mobilities of students and staff as well as cooperation in organizing joint scientific projects and creating a joint study programme.

Through the mobility project, FBM BUT will get the opportunity to motivate a new group of students to study in the Czech Republic. More cooperation and search for options to offer the university capacity to foreign students should follow from this project. 

To KNEU as the partner university, staff mobility within the Erasmus+ programme allows an improvement of the level of teaching and research activities, quality of teaching materials and processes, use of more modern teaching methods and sharing the acquired experience. 

Teachers participating in the mobility get a new view of the course content, teaching methods and attitudes to foreign students at the university. The teachers will also gain experience in teaching of foreign students in English, which has a positive effect on internationalization development of both universities.

The students will learn about different approaches to the discussed subjects, they will be allowed to participate in an international project, communicate with students of the partner institution, share project outputs and promote them at the partner institution.

They will also benefit from professional improvements, new contacts, and exchange of experience in the field of their choice in both mobility types.

The personal contacts established during the mobility will give a strong impulse to further development in education and science. 

The project between the Academy of Public Administration and the Faculty of Business and Management at Brno University of Technology

The project between the Academy of Public Administration (APA) and the Faculty of Business and Management at Brno University of Technology (FBM BUT) is based on long-term co-operation evidenced by a contract from 2015, when a memorandum on co-operation was signed by both parties.

The principal aim of the project is to provide students and academics with the possibility of improving their existing knowledge and skills at a partner university and to strengthen existing connections in the areas of education, science and research. The project aims to increase the knowledge and skills of the teaching staff and students of the APA and the FBM in specialised subjects, leading to an evening up of the situation in respect of other countries striving for accession to the EU and conformity with EU standards. The principal topic of the given co-operation will be information systems in the public administration, the issue of cybersecurity and the development of e-Government in Moldova.

The following types of mobility are planned within the project:

  • A study residence for doctoral students from the APA at BUT – in total two Ph.D. students will attend the FBM at BUT for a period of three months.
  • A study residence for master’s degree students from the APA at BUT – in total two master’s degree students will attend the FBM at BUT for a period of three months.
  • A study residence for doctoral students from the FBM BUT at the APA – in total two Ph.D. students will attend the APA for a period of three months.
  • A teaching assignment for lecturers from the FBM BUT at the APA – a total of four employees of the FBM BUT will attend the partner institute for a ten-day teaching assignment.
  • A teaching assignment for lecturers from the APA at the FBM BUT – a total of four employees of the APA will attend the partner university for a ten-day teaching assignment.

Interaction and knowledge sharing between foreign and domestic students and academics and their joint activity in the areas of science and research will be beneficial to the FBM at BUT. The anticipated contribution made by this co-operation is, first and foremost, an increase in the study mobility of students and employees and co-operation in the organisation of joint projects.

The mobility project will give the FBM at BUT the opportunity of motivating a new group of students to study in the Czech Republic. Further co-operation and a search for ways of offering available places at the university to foreign students should follow up from this project.

The mobility of employees within the Erasmus+ programme will allow the partner institute APA to improve the standard of tuition and research and improve the quality of tuition materials and procedures, in addition to facilitating the use of modern tuition methods and sharing the experience obtained.

Mobility also promotes the principal aim of the APA’s strategic development plan. This involves its internationalisation by means of integration in the unique European space of knowledge and research, promotion with the aim of improving quality, and facilitating activities in international co-operation and mobility for the teaching staff and students of the APA.

This will be accompanied by professional training, the making of contacts, and the sharing of experience in the chosen field in both types of mobility.

The personal contacts that will be made during the course of mobility will provide a strong impetus for further development in the areas of education and science.
