Project
The CONFIDENT project addresses the needs identified in times of crisis within the mobile students regarding their cultural and social adjustment in the host country, providing them with a digital alternative to the physical interactions. Since universities usually place their focus on the academic contents of education, our project aims to fill the gap in an area which was not well covered not even in the pre-Covid era in Romania: enriching students’ soft skills and preparing them for the future; developing the intercultural and digital competences of mobile students, making them proactive and curious about other cultures by means of the digitalization tools which are currently in the spotlight of the educational process. The partner universities will focus on the enhancement of their mobile students’ cross-cultural and digital competences way before the start of the mobility.
