BIPs

The Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP) [ITA] are a new type of mobility in the frame of Erasmus+, with the following characteristics: 

  • short teaching programmes (5 to 30 days), intensive and innovative;
  • combination of a virtual component and a short-term physical mobility;
  • providing at least 3 ECTS;
  • participation of students and staff from different countries;
  • collaborative working methods.
Erasmus +

Why should you attend a BIP?

  • it provides students with fewer opportunities – including economic disadvantage – with the possibility to experience international mobility with a lower effort in terms of time and resources;
  • to develop soft skills and learn more about topics that can enrich your CV;
  • to obtain a daily financial contribution for the mobility in addition to a travel contribution.

How to participate

Ca’ Foscari University of Venice has decided to join for a.y. 2023/2024 to 4 BIPs organised by University of Babes-Bolyai, located in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, a partner institution in the frame of the European University EUTOPIA

Babes-Bolyai is the biggest and most ancient university in Romania, with an academic community counting around 50,000 people. Study areas range from Arts and Humanities to Social Sciences, Life Sciences and Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Information Technology, Engeneering and Technology. The institution has always pursued multiculturalism and the interaction with the local community. In the frame of the EUTOPIA alliance it actively cooperates with Ca’ Foscari and the other partners especially as far as mobility is concerned, and in particular in the frame of BIPs, on which it has acquired a vast experience.
