EMREX – Field trial on the impact of enabling easy mobility on recognition of external studies
EMREX is the solution for electronic transfer of student records between higher education institutions in Europe. The project addresses the Bologna Process 2020 target that 20% of students within the European Higher Education Area should be mobile. The biggest benefit of EMREX will be the increased availability, quality and reliability of information about student records of achievements.
The EMREX field trial aims at testing new ways to make the administration of student mobility easier and thus promoting higher attainment level to student mobility in higher education and also encouraging more effective recognition of prior learning and avoiding overlapping studies. In the first phase the transfer will be set-up between four Nordic countries and Italy.
The solution and its impact on enabling mobility will be evaluated by University of Warsaw. The evaluation period will include surveys and interviews with students, mobility coordinators and administration.
The partners in the EMREX-Project are from Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Italy and Poland but EMREX is meant for all of Europe, and upscaling will go on from 2017 and onwards. The solution will be available through free sharing of the source code. Standardized components developed in the project are also made available to interested HEIs.
