EACEA institutional visit to Politecnico di Torino

On November 25-26 the Politecnico of Torino received an institutional visit by the European Commission’s EACEA, the Agency managing the Erasmus Mundus programme. The goal of the visit was to look at the way the university benefits from Erasmus Mundus, the way it seeks to manage and combine its support for the various Action 2 EM partnerships, and synergies between the EM partnerships and other programmes. The meeting was very much appreciated by the EACEA representatives, who had the opportunity of examining directly the way that Politecnico di Torino operates on the Erasmus Mundus projects, as well as by the Politecnico project managers who received useful suggestions on how to improve future activities.
