This network- "Idea of Europe in European culture, history and politics" (CII-CZ-0029-04-0809)- had been built, beginning with the 2005/2006 Academic Year, initialized by Dr. Radmila Slabakova, from the Palacky University of Olomouc. As co-founders of this network, we had been using it in the last 3 years, managing to have excellent records, continuing our participation in the CEEPUS program, initialized as early as 1997, as well as, in this new 2008/2009 Academic Year, these partner universities are looking forward to widen the activities on new panels:
a. basically, the program will continue to serve as a platform for EU financed student and teacher exchange mobility;
b. in the near future we shall realize a Joint Master Program with the our 6 CEEPUS partner universities;
c. also, in the near future it shall provide the institutional basis and financial support for co-tutorial MA and PhD programs within the network of the 6 partner universities, this program interlinked.
Mobility actions: Graduate students from all partner universities are exchanged for 3 or 5 months. From each partner 2 graduate or doctoral students are going to the Summer school in Bulgaria and 2 teachers each from a different university. Doctoral and other short term students are exchanged on the base of their thesis topic or research project.
Recognition: ECTS introduced or developed at all universities.
ECTS guides, internet - The curricula as so as the numbers of ECTS credits for all offered programmes are here presented. Matej Bel University, the last that joined recently this network, has introduced ECTS in the 1990's in terms of Erasmus activities. All outcomes from study periods of outgoing and/or incoming students will be recognized.
The experience of Universities in international exchanges and mutual recognition (Socrates and inter-university agreements): Bilateral interuniversity agreements are signed between Babes- Bolyai University of Cluj and the University of Belgrade, Pazmany Peter Catholic University, Jagellonian University in Cracow and Palacky University of Olomouc. Also, as a result of this cooperation, in the first CEEPUS year of this network, a Socrates-Erasmus agreement was concluded between Cluj and Palacky Universities. All universities in the network are, in that way, connected to each other by previous experience and agreements.
