  • Training specialists in the development of courses with a social engagement element;
  • Implementing a pilot project on socially involved modules incorporating Bologna objectives (lifelong learning, student centred learning, ECTS, learning outcomes);
  • Preparing a methodology for the building of a social benchmarking tool for higher education institutions;
  • Implementing a social benchmark pilot in Israeli higher education institutions;
  • Developing new modalities for the student-higher education institutional relationship;
