REDEEM Project

The REDEEM project is  funded with the support of Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships and aims to measure the impact of double degree-studies for the students and what lessons can we learn from the stakeholders to become better in developing international programmes in the future. (Website)

The project aims at:

  1. Providing tools to reform the existing Double Degree Programmes and create new ones in the light of a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t work in terms of structure, mandatory and optional activities, employability, student and employer expectations and perceptions, national and scientific field specific differences, etc.
  2. Improving the attractiveness of the reformed/newly created programmes both from the students and the employers perspective
  3. Enhancing higher employability and satisfaction rates of the STEM graduates participating in these programmes
  4. Boosting the internationalization and recruitment strategies at the Higher Education Institutions that will implement the final recommendations.
