Report calls for schemes to boost student exchanges across Europe.
A university coalition is proposing schemes to expand student mobility. In International Curricula and Student Mobility, out on 25 April, the League of European Research Universities in Leuven, Belgium, argues for networked mobility — in which one university sets up student exchanges with others — and embedded mobility, in which several universities create a curriculum and exchange students and teachers. Each would involve more students than Erasmus, the existing European exchange programme, says Bart De Moor, vice-rector of international policy at the Catholic University of Leuven and co-author of the report. - Nature 497, 278 (2013), 08 May 2013
