LEMONOC – Learning Mobility with non-Industrialised Countries

EURASHE is an associate partner in the LEMONOC project on Learning Mobility with non-Industrialised Countries.

Underneath are further information on:


The increasing interest in learning mobility with non-industrialized countries (LEMONOC) has been taken up in future European educational policies (E4A and Horizon 2020). The European Commission has launched the E4A programme (2014-2020) aiming “to ensure that education and training systems deliver the knowledge and skills needed in an increasingly globalized labour market”. The goal is to strengthen the EU as an advanced knowledge society, with sustainable economic development, provide more and better jobs and greater social cohesion by transnational mobility, by enhancing personal growth and global citizenship. Better knowledge of societies in non-industrialised countries, in combination with the acquisition of “more and better skills” while studying or working abroad, will contribute to these goals.

LEMONOC will play in this by providing the framework for such learning mobility. There is an increasing number of very diverse exchange opportunities in HEI with varying goals and objectives. There is a need to develop a more structural, qualitative and joint approach to organize such transnational exchange programmes for HEI. This project wants to develop a best practices manual on the different items of learning mobility with non-industrialized countries, create diverse e-publications with links to validated (online) good practices, and a self-assessment tool for HEIs on an e-platform which can direct the user to the appropriate information. Meanwhile, the project consortium will ensure the sustainability of these instruments and the wider approach by starting a transnational network of HEI partners,dealing with the quality improvement of ‘learning mobility to non-industrialized countries’.
