» Empathy paper: international dissemination

Following their first paper ‘Measurement of empathy in nursing research: systematic review’ published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing last year, Juping and Maggie’s second empathy paper focusing on measurement tools has been accepted for publication and has been recently selected by the Editor-in-Chief for some additional promotional work.

On the online publication of the paper, a list of key people across the world who are working in the field will receive a PDF copy of the paper with a covering email from the journal’s Editor-in-Chief. Maggie and Juping are very delighted to have this great opportunity to quickly highlight their paper to experts in the field, as well as to contribute to the wider international dissemination.

» International Mobility of UK Students

Funding Source: Prime Ministers Initiative (PMI2)

Summary:

Encouraging UK students to take up overseas study opportunities is a key component of the UK’s internationalisation agenda. PMI2 are pleased to invite proposals from UK Higher Education Institutions and related organisations interested in developing and piloting the delivery of international study opportunities for UK undergraduate and postgraduate students. You are invited to bid for PMI2 support funding for one year in the first instance. Continuation funding will be awarded to those projects that are able to demonstrate success, including a potentially sustainable model. Projects will be evaluated and then continuation funding may be offered on a reducing amount over a period of 3 years.

In this call for bids, PMI2 would particularly favour proposals for Malaysia, China, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea and Japan. Proposals from other PMI2 eligible countries (Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam and Sri Lanka) will be considered as second tier. PMI2 welcome innovative ideas for the programmes which could include elements of:

• Introduction to national culture, languages, social and political economy;

• Introduction to the national education system;

• Attendance on part of regular programme in an HE institution;

• Project related work whilst in the country – varying according to the UK student background.

• Commercial/business visits or attachments.

• Design and organise focused programmes for groups of UK students in appropriate sized groups: a minimum of 5, although larger groups are encouraged;

• Visits must be a minimum of 1 month’s duration;

Sum: Finances available will be up to a max. of £800 per student on each visit; these funds can be used to contribute to travel, accommodation and living costs. A student contribution is desired.

Deadline: 10 October 2008

» Call for Proposals: Industrialised Countries Instrument Education Cooperation Programme (ICI ECP)

Funding Source: European Commission

The European Commission has launched together with the governments of Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea, a new multi-country call for proposals.

The objective of this call is to support international curriculum development projects that involve short term mobility between the EU and the partner ICI countries not necessarily related to award of a joint or dual/double degree. Consortia applying for projects under this call are formed by at least 3 institutions from the EU and 2 institutions from a given partner country. Selected consortia will set up a framework for student mobility whereby EU students will typically spend one semester in the partner country institution and vice versa with full recognition of the study period abroad by the home institution. Support includes mobility grants for students and members of the academic and administrative staff (“faculty”).

Funding

The budget available from the EU side for the co-financing of projects is estimated at EUR 2.5m. It is anticipated that funding will be provided for 4-5 EU-Australia projects, 2-3 EU-Japan projects, 1 EU-New Zealand project, and 1-2 EU-Korea projects. The maximum amount of funding on the EU side will be EUR 425,000 for a 3-year Joint Mobility project involving 4 or more EU partner institutions. The duration for Joint Mobility Projects is 3 years.

Deadline: 6 June 2008
