The DIMSE project (Designing an International Master in Social Enterprise and Social Economy) has been launched in February 2022. This project is funded by the European Commission (Project 101050192) as part of the Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM) framework, whose goal is to enhance the capacities of universities to internationalise their curricula and teaching practices and pool resources, and to help higher education systems develop common mechanisms related to quality assurance, accreditation and recognition of degrees and credits.
The objective of the DIMSE project is to carry out a feasibility study for the establishment of an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master (EMJM) in social enterprise and social economy.
The universities currently involved in the project are the University of Louvain (UCLouvain, Belgium), University of Liège (ULiège, Belgium), Roskilde University (RUC, Denmark), Aix-Marseille University (AMU, France), University of Trento (UniTrento, Italy), Tallinn University (TLU, Estonia) and University College Cork (UCC, Ireland). DIMSE will draw from the experience accumulated in the framework of the EMES International Research Network, providing a solid basis to explore the feasibility of an EMJM nurtured by high-quality and recent research.
