Triple I addresses the needs and constrains of the countries involved by disseminating the social and democratic values of the EU and promoting better understanding of Russia, thus supporting the development of Euro-Russian relations in whole. The theme of Integration, Interaction and Institutions is strategically chosen to address the issues important in the Euro-Russian relations. Triple I mobility scheme consists of 225 grantees. Of these grant holders 167 are Russian and 58 European. Partner universities’ students and staff represent 84% of the mobilities: These mobility flows promote interdisciplinary cooperation between partners. Mobility flows create extensive influence on non-mobile students and academics in partner countries and promote the development of joint curricula and even joint degrees. Triple I contributes to the development of joint research projects and promotes exchange of experience in educational methods and practises. In addition, organising individual mobilities enhances capacity for multilateral cooperation in university administration. The aim is also to develop recognition of studies and qualifications, especially in those Russian universities not already using ECTS. Non-partner university mobilities, target groups 2 and 3, provide the grantees the possibility to increase their intellectual capacity in order to be able to contribute for the development of their reference group. Through these target groups Triple I increases its effect on the Russian society as a whole.Triple I mobility scheme is based on free mobility. This means that applicants to the mobility scheme in all target groups can apply freely to any European/Russian partner university of their interest. Free mobility and lack of pre-assigned mobility quotas allow the mobilities to be chosen on academic criteria. The thematic expertise of each partner can be fully appreciated and the interests of the applicants served. The Consortium aims at multilateral mobility flows that arise from academic interest.
