The EM-ACE project aims at addressing one of the main barriers to European students’ participation in the Erasmus Mundus programme, i.e. visibility, by improving marketing in the specific areas of information, promotion, and training. The final goal is to raise both the quantity and quality of applications received from European candidates.
EM-ACE has two main target groups:
- European students
- Potential EM promoters (International Relations officers, EM coordinators, and EMA members).
The EM-ACE website – with two separate sections for students and EM promoters- addresses the different needs of the target groups and provides purpose-developed information for each of them.
The project is implemented by an international consortium coordinated by Sapienza University of Rome. EM-ACE partners are:
- Campus France, France
- UNICA Network, Belgium
- Ghent University, Belgium
- The Knowledge Partnership, UK
- ICUnet.AG, on behalf of the Erasmus Mundus Association
- University of Belgrade, Serbia
- University of Melbourne, Australia
- Erasmus Student Network (ESN)
- Portuguese Erasmus Mundus National Structure
- Santander Group
- Institute of International Education (USA)
