On June 4, 2021, the National Erasmus+ Office carried out the 2nd Monitoring on the intermediate results of the MHELM project.

The meeting was moderated by Mrs. Claudia MELINTE, director of the National Erasmus+ Office. The monitoring session was attended by representatives of the partner universities and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research.

In the opening session Mrs. Melinte greeted the participants and mentioned the need for these monitoring meetings, which aim both to implement the planned activities, to know the results, but also to discuss some issues that may arise during the activities in order to prevent and to overcome them.

Then, Mrs. Larisa BUGAIAN, the project coordinator, summarized the activities carried out in the last 6 months, mentioning the importance of the first piloting of the Leadership and management programme developed by the members of the MHELM team. This was the biggest novelty of the project in the last 6 months, namely: the completion of the materials for the launch of the project and the piloting of the programme with a duration of 40 credits. The piloting activities started on January 20 and lasted until June 4, 2021 online, using the ZOOM platform. The training showed the importance of this course for managers of different levels in the university. During the training, different methods of activating the beneficiaries were used. Also, it was demonstrated the achievement of the programme in inter-university environment, because the training, together with theoretical knowledge, bring a great benefit regarding the exchange of experience and opinions made through different case study methods, debates, project presentations and university strategies.

Another important activity achieved during the reporting period is the elaboration of the self-evaluation report of the Leadership and management programme, its submission along with the support documents to the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Education and Research  and the beginning of the external evaluation process for its authorization for provisional operation.

Also, during this period all the equipment was purchased and was in the installation stage in the dedicated rooms.

Then, the other 6 project partners presented the activities carried out within the project during the mentioned period. In fact, all the activities carried out by the 24 members of the MHELM team had a common goal: to carry out the first piloting of the programme in the manner of good interuniversity development.

Finally, Mrs. Claudia MELINTE appreciated the work carried out within the MHELM project and came up with some recommendations regarding the implementation of the project in the future.
