As part of the annual Erasmus+ Days to celebrate the Erasmus+ program, an event with lectures and presentations on Erasmus+ and Research Promotion Fund projects was held in the University Auditorium on Wednesday, October 25.
Promoting European identity is a core objective of Erasmus +. Erasmus+ is the European Union’s program to promote education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The EU’s Erasmus+ program has been funding higher education projects for 35 years. Students, lecturers, researchers, companies and citizens in Europe have the opportunity for cross-border mobilities, knowledge transfer, cooperation and alliances for innovation within Europe.
In his welcome address, Rector Dr. Christian Frommelt emphasized: "At its core, it is about supporting mobility and thus exchange and cooperation. Bringing people together in and from Europe should not only create new knowledge, but also a common identity. For a small university in a small country, Erasmus + is simply priceless. The Erasmus students from all over Europe at the University of Liechtenstein are a great enrichment and make us more international and diverse as a university."
In the auditorium of the University of Liechtenstein, the exhibition offered a glimpse of the diverse projects in which the Agency for International Educational Affairs AIBA and the university have been and are involved in recent years within the framework of Erasmus+ and the Research Promotion Fund (FFF). The AIBA projects on display were Special Olympics, a project from the youth sector, ABB, a recurrent mobility project from vocational education, and Creative Agility, a project from adult education. The University of Liechtenstein has also been involved in cooperation projects for 10 years within the framework of Erasmus+, posters of various Erasmus+ and FFF projects showed the whole range of research.
The following Erasmus+ projects were presented:
Sebastian Moder - Entrepreneurial Self-Leadership Education through Virtual Training;
