The MIMI project held two gatherings at Warsaw University of Technology on 21-23 April 2015: ‘Matching Exercise’ and ‘Tuning Internationalisation Goals to Practices’. The first day allowed the consortium members to have a first-hand look on current practices of EU universities on how they manage internationalisation at the university level and to match governance procedures, guidelines, principles and priorities to their existing partner universities counterparts. In addition, a state-of-the art and level of advancements of the project’s activities, the first results of the SWOT analysis and indicators, were presented by the University of Barcelona and CHE-Consult. The second day was dedicated to partner universities (Morocco, Jordan, Lebanon) who presented their institution’s internationalisation model, strategy, achievements, and challenges. On Thursday 23 April, led by Prof. Marek Polak from the Warsaw University of Technology, working groups were formed and participants could share their opinion on the first draft of the Internationalisaiton Management Model (IMM). A designated representative from each of the group made feedback and comments that will be used/included for the enhancement of the current version of the IMM. The meeting ended with an overview of the remaining activities and events to be undertaken in the Year 2 of the project. Active participation and involvement of all the partners institutions’ representatives allowed for extremely interesting exchanges and this showed a good sense of ownership of the project. Interpretation from English to French (and vice versa) permitted a strong implication of all attendees.
