LEMONOC Conference

BIP - House of the Capital Region
Rue Royale 2-4

The conference offers experts and stakeholders in student mobility, exchange programmes and joint study programmes a platform for exchange and networking. We address the potential and challenges of learning mobility between the ‘Global South’ and the ‘Global North’. The focus will be on the requirements concerning partnerships and the institutional setup for successful learning mobility to the benefit of both sides. Keynote presentations will address the expectations and challenges, institutional processes and organizational enablers, as well as good practices and lessons learned from the perspective of sending institutions.



The LEMONOC conference will enable the participant

  • to develop and reflect critically upon the vision and expectations concerning learning mobility North-South in Higher education,
  • to know the LEMONOC guiding criteria for quality in learning mobility North-South,
  • to get to know the LEMONOC instruments for quality,
  • to formulate aspects for quality improvement of the institutional practices.
