The EU promotes workforce mobility within member states and the recognition of educational qualifications in order to match labour market needs. COHAB (Co-ordination and integration of higher education and the labour market around the South Baltic Sea) an EU funded project focused upon enhancing staff and student competencies for South Baltic mobility. Central to the project was the use of virtual communication. A joint semester course was developed that involved study trips, parallel teaching sessions using virtual communication systems, and IT based interactive learning objects. Students rated the semester positively and the project has contributed to professional development both at the personal and the institutional level.
