EU‐CONEXUS ALUMNI NETWORK
An EU-CONEXUS alumni network will be implemented to improve the visibility of EU‐CONEXUS and its connections with the industry and society.
SUMMER AND WINTER SCHOOLS
The summer and winter schools will be a good opportunity to offer mobility actions to the students of partner institutions that may not be directly involved in joint study programs as well to those who could not participate to student mobility during the academic year and to the students of other European or international universities.
The summer/winter school programs allow for a major staff mobility and better integration of partner institutions. It is an important opportunity to improve the relations with the local community.
The summer/winter schools will be organised on all aspects of the smart urban coastal area topics and include the presentation of the cultures, traditions and languages of the local community and the partner institutions’ countries and Europe in general.
