The HARMONY project aims to support the modernisation, accessibility, and internationalisation of the higher education institutions in India, Bangladesh and Vietnam and to contribute to the cooperation between the European universities and Asian universities. The HARMONY project’s overall objective and the main underpinning of Partner countries’ is to have an impact and trigger reform processes at Higher Education Institutions, enabling them to strategically manage internationalisation in the provision of education, research, mobility, and services.


To achieve this, the European HEIs from Spain, Slovenia, Bulgaria, and Lithuania and the 7 Asian PC HEIs will engage in a series of activities that contribute to the following project specific objectives:
