The “International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE)”, is a two-year educational programme in the Erasmus Mundus framework. This master course is commonly organized by:
* Ghent University, Belgium (coordinator)
* Lund University, Sweden
* The University of Edinburgh, UK
The main objective is creating an educational programme that provides the required knowledge for a professional fire safety engineer in a Performance Based Design environment. Besides interuniversity cooperation, student mobility in Europe is one of the main points of interest of the overall programme. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities.
Asia-Europe Training Courses are important intercultural learning instruments of non-formal education that focus on the personal and professional development of young people and on the capacity building of youth organisations in Asia and Europe. These activities aim at bringing together the next generation of leaders, equipping them with knowledge, skills and attitudes that enables them to make meaningful contacts, address negotiations, have significant exchanges and deal in a fruitful and open way with any type of interregional issues within their efforts to deepen the Asia-Europe co-operation one step further.
The Directorate of Youth and Sport of the Council of Europe and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) have in common a commitment to intercultural dialogue through youth work and youth cooperation. A first cooperation activity was held at the European Youth Centre Budapest in 2009: a training course on intercultural dialogue and human rights education. After the success of that training course both partners decided to continue their cooperation and provide their respective youth partners with further opportunities to learn and work together, to exchange
experience and ideas and to develop common projects and cooperation.
