UNICA Contact Persons/IRO meeting at the UNICA General Assembly 2022

The UNICA Contact Persons/IRO meeting in the framework of the UNICA General Assembly 2022 took place on 30 June 2022 at University College Dublin.

During the meeting, Catherine Convery, UCD Global Mobility Manager & Shane Lordan, UCD Global Projects Officer, introduced their institution and its mobility activities, and presented the DIGIPASS project, an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project designed to improve the impact of mobility experiences for students by providing a holistic approach to online mobility support.

The project consortium (which includes three UNICA members: University of Edinburgh, University College Dublin, and the University of Amsterdam), developed a unique online student training programme, incorporating a range of ICT tools and open educational resources, which support students during each stage of the mobility life cycle (orientation, pre-departure, during and after mobility). In addition, a staff toolkit was developed as part of the project, which aims to support both academic and administrative staff who are working in the area of mobility.

During the meeting, the participants had also the opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the past year and to discuss and make proposals on the future activities of the IRO Group:
