The overall objective of the IDEAS project is to create a partnership in research and education that will strengthen the ties between Europe and Asia, with a special focus on innovation and product realization in a global context. The project will provide students with an excellence in scientific and technological domains, based on both theoretical foundations and practical experience with an international perspective, and prepare them to participate in building and managing complex and large systems and infrastructures.

The project will establish a mobility network between Europe and Asia, to exchange excellence in research and education in several relevant disciplines, such as Innovation, Design, Engineering and Environmental Science. It will expand the experience of European partners in student and staff exchange to the Partner Institution in Asia, and thus disseminate good practices with regard to organization and mobility.

Furthermore, IDEAS will facilitate the mobility of students and academic staff through a scholarship scheme, curriculum development of the individuals, the transfer of know-how, and the exchange of best practices. Although the funding of this specific Lot is only for mobility from Asia to EU, we will strive to implement the mobility in both directions. The emphasis will be placed on capacity building aspects, in particular the ability of the Partner Institutions to handle international mobility and large international cooperation projects.

Finally, the project will also provide the long-lasting value to the individuals involved, who will benefit from a study/research period abroad. As the IDEAS Consortium offers a wide range of thematic fields, many individual mobility demands will find the right educational or research environment at the Host Institutions. This will contribute to develop a pool from well qualified, open-minded and internationally experienced young women/men as future leaders.

The IDEAS project will primarily focus on collaboration in science and high technology domains with a special focus on the thematic fields Innovation, Computer Engineering, Financial Engineering and Environmental Science.
