further and actively developed.

Departments need to be stimulated to

collaborate intensively with strategic partners.

Departments need to be stimulated to

evaluate through international contacts the social relevance of the education

programme.

Internationalisation has to be embedded in the curriculum

of all study fields.

There is a structural dialogue between the International

Office and other central services.

 The procedures used in the different departments are

streamlined.

Next to the consolidation of existing activities, the first

steps need to be undertaken to establish further

interdisciplinary co-operation in international projects.

Students need the guarantee for full recognition of all

kinds of internationalisation activities.

The school has an active job assignment policy for

teaching staff as far as international activities are concerned.
