IHF in Milan, Italy for the 2nd Meeting of SHIFT, an Erasmus+ Project

IHF was in Milan, Italy on April 27th for the 2nd Transnational Project Meeting of SHIFT (Strengthen Higher-education through Innovative Financial Tools), a Project co-funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education.

SHIFT is implemented by a Consortium of 7 partners from 4 European countries (United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy and Poland). SHIFT will develop and validate an innovative financial model to support Higher Education students in Europe.

During the meeting, Partners presented key findings of IO1 – Mapping Financing Dynamics of HE Students and discussed how they can feed IO2 – Innovative Financial Model for HE Students. Indeed, IO1 was aimed at identifying how HE students finance their studies within Project Countries and all over the Europe in order to understand which is the best financial model to suit their needs.

Under IO2, SHIFT will develop and validate an innovative funding model for both Higher Education students who receive grants/loans and Higher Education Institutions that manage public resources.

An important issue discussed during the meeting was Dissemination and Exploitation activities since Partners are strongly committed to give great visibility to the Project.
