Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The CONCERTO Consortium is at its second yearly edition. The partners network has been enlarged including the University and the Music Academy of Bologna. This enlargement has even more fortified the consortium on a territorial level due to the fact that now all the Higher Education Institution of Emilia Romagna region are part of the Consortium. On the other hand also the type of mobilities has been increased, not only traineeship or training mobilities were offered but also teaching mobilities were introduced on specific request of music and art academies. The project goals keep being the same and differ from participant to participant depending on the type of mobility. It is still a primary goal of the project to allow students and young graduates to carry out a traineeship mobility whose matter is closely connected to their study field. In order to fullfill this goal it is necessary to select applicants also on the bases of a strong language knowledge referring to the language of the hosting country or at least one of eh most common languages, in order to allow the participants to focus exclusively on the working activies agreed and giving them the chance to get in touch with the working context from a hierachical point of view but also through the connections with other colleagues met in the hosting institution. Also staff mobility both for training and teaching is promoted on side in order to strengthen the cooperation with international partnes but alos to encourage the exchange of best practices between staff members of different institutions. The Consortium, through traineeship mobilities, keeps it main goal to contribute to the creation of high level professional profiles. This is possibile thanks to a careful choice of the hosting institutions that must guarantee high quality traineeship periods according to the study field of the beneficiaries and a constant monitoring on participants mobilities for the whole period. It is aswell evident the commitment of the consortium trying to balance the theorical background of the participants with practical activities that may enrich their working curriculum. Even the hosting institutions may gain advantages from this project as they have the chance to get in touch with candidates with an updated professional profile willing to immediately share their knowledge with the envolved company. The same opportunity is given also to staff members of the partner institutions that want to take part to the project through training or teaching mobilities. Thanks to training mobilities staff members have the chance to improve the professional knowledge sharing best practices and discuss critical issuses on their work field. On the other had teaching mobilities allow to increase students education in foreign instititution through lectures organized by teacher who beneficiaries of the project. In agreement with all the partners of the consortium it was decided that each sending institution would have promoted its own through their own calls for application. This choice didn’t give the expected results due to the fact that the number of candidates that applied for a mobility grant wasn.’t sufficient to cover the total amount of the financed budget. This strategy won’t be adopted in the future and more over the will be a unique selection process for the whole consortium in an established moment of the year in order not to overlap with other mobility grant assignments in any of the institutions of the consortium.
