The [i]nternational alliance for [d]igital [e]-learning, [e]-mobility and [e]-research in [a]cademia, in short ide3a, is a project funded by the German Academic Exchange Service, in short DAAD, International Mobility and Cooperation through Digitalisation, in short IMKD, program for the period 2020-2023. As a collaborative project in the higher education sector it involves a multidisciplinary and international consortium of six European partner organisations, led by the Technische Universität Berlin and including the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Norway, Politecnico di Milano in Italy, Cracow University of Technology in Poland, Dublin City University in Ireland, and the Hasso-Plattner-Institute in Germany.
Project ide3a aims to develop a virtual campus where technologies for e-learning, e-research, and e-mobility are integrated with two specific objectives. First, the project will implement the interdisciplinary topic of Critical Infrastructure & Digitalisation in traditional study programs. Digital technologies for remote learning, open knowledge, and student engagement will be coupled with research-based teaching formats. Second, the projects' university network aims to create a fully digitalised management of both short-term and long-term student and staff mobility. In doing so, ide3a also addresses the recent challenges and digital transition fostered by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. ide3a will serve as a blueprint for the successful implementation of blended-learning and blended-mobility activities in an international setting.
