The aim of the Aurora Capacity Development Support Programme Expert & Support Center is to disseminate further the knowledge and skills developed among CDS associate partners through previous training (e.g. Aurora Competence Framework, Community Service Learning and Co-creation, Virtual Mobility, Learning for Societal Impact, COIL, SDGs in education) in other Central and Eastern European HEIs interested in collaboration with the Aurora.
Associate partners will also offer expertise in different thematic areas, which are unique and complementary to Aurora domains (e.g. Slavic studies, sustainable tourism, anti-corruption schemes). In addition, the associate partners will offer their context knowledge about Central and Eastern Europe, further supporting the establishment of mutually beneficial cooperation between the Aurora Alliance and its CDS network for developing joint project proposals. Associate partners will become regional Aurora experts once the “Train of trainers” phase ends (June 2022).
