Max van der Stoel Research Institute is the winner of a European Commission grant under the Erasmus + program for strategic partnerships in higher education

Max van der Stoel Research Institute at the South East European University is the winner of a European Commission grant under the Erasmus + program for strategic partnerships in higher education. This grant was awarded for the realization of the project with the acronym BRIDGE: Bridging Integrity in Higher Education, Business, and Society, which will begin in September this year.

The BRIDGE project seeks to develop new, open and innovative educational resources to properly address issues of academic integrity in research, business and society among society among master and doctoral students, and their supervisors. Considering that research malpractices are mainly done by graduate and doctoral students in higher education institutions, when they usually start researching, the primary effort for academic and research integrity should be directed towards them as future researchers who are at the beginning of their careers.

The leader of the project consortium consisting of six European institutions will be one of the top ranked research universities in the world, Uppsala University in Sweden.

Other project partners are: South East European University (Northern Macedonia), Mendel University (Brno, Czech Republic), Kherson National Technical University (Ukraine), Lithuanian Center for Social Research (Lithuania), Office of the Ombudsman for Academic Ethics and Procedures of the Republic of Lithuania (Lithuania).

The project will last three years.
