Fourteen partners, nine countries, three years of working, from Autumn 2009 to 2012: this is ModES (Modernisation of higher education through soft skills accreditation) in a nutshell. Led by Campus Bio-Medico of Rome, financed by the EU programme "Lifelong Learning Erasmus", the ModES project created a White Paper on soft skills, based on the teaching and learning experience of the university collegiate halls of residence.

Dissent, Conscience and the Wall-DCW

Dissent, Conscience, and the Wall (DCW) is a project run by the European University College Association and Netherhall Educational Association between October 2014 and March 2016. The project marked 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, on 9th November 1989. The project consisted of three symposia, two in London and one in Brussels, culminating in a plenary conference at the end, held in Brussels. DCW built the symposia around three key themes: - Tolerance of dissent and freedom of conscience on both sides of the Iron Curtain; - The role of conscience and dissent in bringing about the fall of the Berlin Wall; - The changing role of conscience and dissent in Europe since 1989. The symposia included inputs from academics and other public intellectuals. A key focus was to encourage undergraduate and postgraduate students, and other young adults, to research and present their own papers on the key themes.

An Erasmus experience is always a great experience, but can it be better? For university students involved in a mobility program, it is important not only to develop language and academic skills but also to experience the culture and the traditions of the hosting country through non-formal and informal education (volunteering, daily activities related to work, family life or leisure, ‘invisible’ learning experiences).

A thorough reflection on the good practices enhancing the quality of the students’ mobility experience has not yet been developed.
