Successful Erasmus+ KA107 application
Within the Erasmus+ programme for education and training, Key Action 1 - Educational mobility of individuals / University mobility projects between Programme and Partner countries, project number 2020-1-SK01-KA107-078059, submitted by UKF represented by its rector, prof. RNDr. Libor Vozár, CSc., a grant in the amount of EUR 474,842 was awarded to UKF.
The amount of the allocated grant and the number of competing countries (19 - Albania, Argentina, Bhutan, Canada, Chile, China, Cuba, Egypt, Georgia, Ghana, India, Iran, Israel, Mexico, Mongolia, Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan) made it the most successful Erasmus+ KA107 project in the history of UKF and also the most successful project among the submitted projects of this type in Slovakia this academic year.
The project application was created under the leadership of PhDr. Martina Pavlíková, PhD. Vice-Rector for International Relations, in February 2020 in wide cooperation with the Department for International Relations with other officials and teachers working at UKF. In the project, UKF applied for grants for countries with which specific scientific and pedagogical staff have demonstrated significant international cooperation.
The proof that UKF processed the application very well is not only its point but also verbalized evaluation: ‘The application contains a factual and detailed description of individual criteria, usually a unique approach to individual countries and partner institutions, as well as a thorough setting of project management and measures for successful mobility progress. It was the criteria of relevance of the strategy and a detailed description of the planned cooperation that collected the highest number of points for the application and the individual countries; the applicant, in most cases, properly described the facts of existing development of partnerships and properly included expert reasons and results achieved.’
The following had the highest rated international cooperation in terms of points (above 90%) within the approved countries: prof. PaedDr. Zdenka Gadušová, CSc., prof. ThDr. PaedDr. Roman Králik, ThD., prof. Mgr. Katarína Fichnová, PhD., prof. PaedDr. Alena Hašková, CSc., prof. RNDr. František Petrovič, PhD., prof. RNDr. Alexander Sirotkin, DrSc., doc. Mgr. Martin Drlík, PhD., doc. RNDr. Zuzana Krumpálová, PhD., doc. RNDr. Peter Mederly, PhD., Dr. habil. Mgr. Ildiko Vančo, PhD., RNDr. Lucia Petríkovičová, PhD.
The following types of mobilities will be financially supported within the obtained project:
- student mobility for studies
- student mobility for traineeships
- staff mobility for teaching
- staff mobility for training
International mobilities within the approved partner countries will be implemented with an emphasis on incoming mobilities of students and staff. These activities will significantly strengthen the internationalization of UKF in Nitra and expand its international reputation.
We would like to thank all those who contributed to this exceptional success of UKF.
