The Joiman Network (Joint Degree Management and Administration Network), composed by partners and people with relevant experience in the management of Joint Programmes, investigated obstacles and challenges usually faced by coordinators of Joint Programmes at Master and Doctoral level. After two years of activities, which included surveys, analyses, and international conferences and seminars, the Network has produced a set of results. These findings are shared with the Higher Education Community at large with the aim to support institutions in overcoming administrative and management difficulties in the development and implementation of Joint Programmes.
The positive feedback and demand for practical solutions persuaded the network to start a second phase of the project, turning the JOIMAN results into an innovative training method. This training method is realized in the JOI.CON project (Joint Programme Management – Conferences and Training) which aims at training present and future coordinators of Joint Programmes. Its milestones are two international conferences and an embedded training.
