Partners Explore Extension of European Exchanges
Friday, 18 March, 2011
Leaders of the Australia-European Union SWaRM exchange programme are looking to build on the early success of the scheme.
In particular, the programme has established closer relationships between the tertiary institutional, graduates and staff.
The ICE WaRM Board of Studies recently met jointly with key European SWaRM representatives – Jasper Verberk from the Technical University of Delft in The Netherlands, Peter-Wolfgang Gräber from the Technical University of Dresden in Germany and Christopher Bustin from the University of Dundee in Scotland – to assess the strengths of the existing exchange programmes and explore emerging opportunities.
In particular, the European group wants to develop more diverse links with the ICE WaRM Australian partner universities – the University of Adelaide, Deakin University in Victoria, the University of South Australia, Flinders University in South Australia, and CQUniversity in Queensland.
Under the SWaRM programme, Australian students in the fourth year of a water related discipline at an ICE WaRM partner university and current post-graduates, including students enrolled in the ICE WaRM Master of Water Resources Management, are eligible to take part in the exchange scheme.
