According to the new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme and in order to pursue the experimental and innovative objectives set by UNITA - Universitas Montium Alliance, the University of Turin promotes and supports outgoing Erasmus+ blended intensive mobilities.

 

Erasmus Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP) allow HEI students to carry out an internationalization experience that combines short-term physical mobility abroad with a compulsory virtual component in order to:

  • create more international learning opportunities
  • support the development of innovative learning and teaching methods
  • stimulate the construction of transnational and multidisciplinary courses.

The UNITA Erasmus BIPs aim to bring together groups of students from at least three higher education institutions belonging to the UNITA - Universitas Montium alliance.
