Mission statement

The main goal of the e-LERU was to build a showcase of the partner universities' strengths and specificities in the field of education and research.

e-LERU intended to bring a European dimension to research based teaching in European universities by encouraging academics to collaborate, notably through the construction of trans-national combined course structures (e-learning modules) and through physical and virtual mobility of students, in order to further develop internationalization of curricula.

e-LERU acted as a go-between and was a facilitator of such process in the framework of a European dimension.

The consortium took stock of the two last years

Dec102011

The consortium e-LERU took stock of the past two years. It appears that it is yet very difficult to go on this initiative in the current situation and that the structure in which the partners could work should change. The implementation of projects in which the partners wants to engage cannot find a clear link with the strategic directions of each partner’s policy. If however this link is present, it is not necessarily present simultaneously in each university and this translates a lack of resources mobilized for the projects. The e-LERU consortium has capitalized a lot of expertise in the field of management issues related to digital. In order to give value to this know-how, we need to reach a critical mass of universities that could be involved in the various proposed projects and the creation of a specific LERU Community could be an interesting track to follow. In addition, the European Research Area is on the verge of many great challenges in the digital domain and we sense the need to address these changes collectively in a group discussion as we hope so, fed by all LERU universities.
