The fourth meeting of the GLOBED consortium was held at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona on the 18th and 19th of October 2013. One of the main objectives of the meeting was to define and specify the structure and content of the GLOBED masters. This meeting also provided the opportunity for the different working groups (which had been created at the preceding meeting in Amsterdam) to meet in person and move one step forward in the work they had already started online.
In this regard, the meeting enabled the consortium to make progress with the development of the curriculum of the GLOBED masters, as well as with issues related to the mobility of students and lecturers, and the definition of the admission and selection criteria for future students. Quality assurance procedures, together with strategies related to the marketing of the programme and engagement with potential associate partners were also discussed.
