Outputs

Brief overview

The IHES project will include five intellectual outputs (IOs) and three multiplier events (ME) over the course of three years. Each of these has a specific leading organisation and focuses on a different output type.

Approved Intellectual Outputs

Intellectual Output 2

Report on current good practices in IHES across Europe

  • 01/11/2020 – 31/08/2021
  • Leading organisation – Academic Cooperation Association (ACA)
  • Output type – studies/analysis and best practice guidelines/reports

IO2 will identify existing IHES practices through a mapping survey among HEIs, further desk research and two focus groups with representatives from civil society and regional authorities. These two focus groups are planned, conducted and anaylzed by Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLP). The results will be measured against a set of criteria in order to identify examples which combine international and local dimension most thoroughly. Best practice will be showcased in an online repository and analysed in an upcoming report. Also, IO2 will feed new ideas into all other IOs of the project.

Intellectual Output 3

Report on the concept, implementation and results of the regional IHES laboratories in Catalonia and the Olomouc region

  • 01/03/2021 – 30/06/2023
  • Leading organisation – Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV)
  • Output type – studies/analysis and case study

The core activity of IO3 is the creation and comparison of two regional IHES-Labs, one in Catalonia and one in the Olomouc region. After receiving an introductory training in IHES, staff from Universitat Rovira i Virgili and Palacký University Olomouc will introduce the internationalisation component in several of their social engagement activities. The impact of these pilot IHES activities will be measured and analysed, comparing both regions. The resulting IO3 report, together with the IO2 report on IHES good practices, will form the basis for the development of the IHES guidelines (IO4).

Intellectual Output 4

Guidelines for implementing IHES

  • 01/10/2021 – 31/07/2023
  • Leading organisation – Global Impact Institute s.r.o. (GII)
  • Output type – methodologies/guidelines and methodological framework for implementation

The guidelines for implementing IHES form the basis for allowing the sustainability and distribution of the project results beyond the consortium and the project timeline. They will provide practical instructions on how to proceed if one wants to implement IHES projects successfully.

The guidelines will consist of an overall report, a number of individual one-page quick guides to different tested approaches, and an online database that allows for customised guidelines: users will be able to select specific IHES guidelines based on filters such as goals or target groups.

Intellectual Output 5

Developing a regional model for implementing internationalisation in higher education for society

  • 01/09/2022 – 30/06/2023
  • Leading organisation – Grupo Santander (S Group)
  • Output type – methodologies/guidelines and methodological framework for implementation

The main objective of IO5 is the elaboration of a general model focused on the regional implementation of IHES. It will represent a sum of the intellectual outputs achieved during the first years of the project implementation and, consequently, combining findings from previous reports, including guidelines, good practices and the practical Introductory IHES sessions held in the two experimental regions. It aims to be a tool that allows putting the findings of the other outputs in an operative way, generating a regional model approach that will be implementable in regions across Europe and beyond.

IO5 will impact the participant institutions (HEIs, regional governments, societal actors, NAs) by improving resources available to approach the current issues facing today’s societies, through the concept of internationalisation for society in academic and research collaboration.

Intellectual Output 6

Establishing an IHES network of organisations

  • 01/03/2021 – 31/08/2023
  • Leading organisation – Palacký University Olomouc (UP)
  • Output type – network / interactive resource   

IO6 will set up IHES resource centre in the form of online platform. It will feature information on the IHES Network of Organization that will be open to new members from Europe and across the globe. Presented will be IHES results/publications, upcoming IHES activities and events, including regional activities and annual IHES network conference. Highlighted will be IO3 regional lab activities and best practices identified from IO2 survey in the form of interactive map.

By establishing IHES Network we aim to ensure long-term sustainability by promoting IHES, changing mindset in favour of IHES, exchanging best practices through interactive map, increasing number of IHES related projects, growing further IHES community and culture.
