Erasmus+ Mobility Program to Danubius University in Galati, Romania
Erasmus+ Mobility Program History
The Erasmus+ Program is a European Union exchange program that combines the Erasmus Program and its design to include education, training, youth and sports which began in 2014. Since this program was expanded to include partners outside of the European Union, collaboration on this program began in 2016 between Danubius University of Romania and Siam University in order to promote learning mobility of individuals at Higher Education Institutions.
Erasmus+ Mobility Program Collaboration
Dr. Andy Pusca – Rector of Danubius University and Dr. Pornchai Mongkhonvanit – President of Siam University had been in collaboration talks during visits to each others university and several meetings lead to a partnership for the Erasmus+ Mobility between Romania and Thailand. Siam University has chosen 3 teachers, 2 staff members and 1 student to participate in the mobility beginning now until May 2018. Each member of our staff will work closely with members at Danubius University to learn about processes and methods as well as trading knowledge about differences in teaching, learning, and culture. This exchange will provide each partner valuable insights to each other and the methods they use to transfer knowledge to their students.
