In order to reduce the impact of geographical distance and travel times upon academic cooperation and the spread of knowledge, the partner institutions will be linked under a common platform to create a ‘virtual campus’. The project aims to develop a model for the implementation of degree programmes with cross border elements. An effective model for future academic mobility will be created, and a better understanding of how best to implement education curricula in a cross-border context with a high degree of information security will be gained.
