It might be interesting to find other educational activites of the universities leading to closer cooperation between higher education and the labour market.

The focus is on the academic value of teaching, which is influenced by employers, professional bodies etc. The issue is to analyse examples of i.e former succesful Erasmus CD projects, or other LLL related activities of the universities.
