The project between the Academy of Public Administration and the Faculty of Business and Management at Brno University of Technology
The project between the Academy of Public Administration (APA) and the Faculty of Business and Management at Brno University of Technology (FBM BUT) is based on long-term co-operation evidenced by a contract from 2015, when a memorandum on co-operation was signed by both parties.
The principal aim of the project is to provide students and academics with the possibility of improving their existing knowledge and skills at a partner university and to strengthen existing connections in the areas of education, science and research. The project aims to increase the knowledge and skills of the teaching staff and students of the APA and the FBM in specialised subjects, leading to an evening up of the situation in respect of other countries striving for accession to the EU and conformity with EU standards. The principal topic of the given co-operation will be information systems in the public administration, the issue of cybersecurity and the development of e-Government in Moldova.
The following types of mobility are planned within the project:
- A study residence for doctoral students from the APA at BUT – in total two Ph.D. students will attend the FBM at BUT for a period of three months.
- A study residence for master’s degree students from the APA at BUT – in total two master’s degree students will attend the FBM at BUT for a period of three months.
- A study residence for doctoral students from the FBM BUT at the APA – in total two Ph.D. students will attend the APA for a period of three months.
- A teaching assignment for lecturers from the FBM BUT at the APA – a total of four employees of the FBM BUT will attend the partner institute for a ten-day teaching assignment.
- A teaching assignment for lecturers from the APA at the FBM BUT – a total of four employees of the APA will attend the partner university for a ten-day teaching assignment.
Interaction and knowledge sharing between foreign and domestic students and academics and their joint activity in the areas of science and research will be beneficial to the FBM at BUT. The anticipated contribution made by this co-operation is, first and foremost, an increase in the study mobility of students and employees and co-operation in the organisation of joint projects.
The mobility project will give the FBM at BUT the opportunity of motivating a new group of students to study in the Czech Republic. Further co-operation and a search for ways of offering available places at the university to foreign students should follow up from this project.
The mobility of employees within the Erasmus+ programme will allow the partner institute APA to improve the standard of tuition and research and improve the quality of tuition materials and procedures, in addition to facilitating the use of modern tuition methods and sharing the experience obtained.
Mobility also promotes the principal aim of the APA’s strategic development plan. This involves its internationalisation by means of integration in the unique European space of knowledge and research, promotion with the aim of improving quality, and facilitating activities in international co-operation and mobility for the teaching staff and students of the APA.
This will be accompanied by professional training, the making of contacts, and the sharing of experience in the chosen field in both types of mobility.
The personal contacts that will be made during the course of mobility will provide a strong impetus for further development in the areas of education and science.
