While it is no longer necessary to demonstrate the benefits of mobility for students and staff, it should be stressed that mobility is also seen as an excellent way to strengthen the links between institutions.
The construction of UNITA and its sustainability rests in part on the capacity of partners to significantly increase mobility among them, taking into account that each context is really particular. For instance, the current percentages of long-term student mobility are very different from one institution to another (from 10% to 33%).
Thus, this work package aims to develop facilities and “tools” to encourage and support student and staff mobility, in particular from one UNITA institution to another. In order to reach its long-term objective of 50% of mobility between them, the partners implement several strategies.
The various models developed and tested during the first three years to overcome obstacles to physical mobility, to propose new forms of mobility (virtual mobility, rural Erasmus and Green UNITA mobilities), and to promote personalized pathways for students within the Alliance, make it possible to multiply the mobilities between UNITA partners by at least a factor of 10 by the end of the first period. The objective of the Alliance is to follow a trajectory where, by 2030, more than half of the graduates have pursued a mobility within Alliance.
