57 Cristina L.M. Silva Brussels, 4 – 5th December 2008 Slide 56 Positive Meetings and interaction with food professionals from Europe and the rest of the world. Meeting colleagues from other African countries. The main goal of the ISEKI_Mundus – Tuning World Food Studies – teaching, learning, & teaching materials. This certainly contributes to exchange of students and staff – so important with the globalisation. Creation of a Virtual Working Environment for experts – encourages collaborative research. Creation of a student platform helps and guides students for mobility.

58 Cristina L.M. Silva Brussels, 4 – 5th December 2008 Slide 57 Challenges Language differences. More documents should be translated. Bridging gaps in higher education institutions between Europe and Africa cannot be overlooked. There is need for more dissemination of European initiatives (like ISEKI_Mundus). Work on language issues for student mobility – to avoid fear and doubts.

This is to make university teachers move towards students University of Bukavu received the impacts of repeated wars in the eastern part of DRC since 1996 – two years after its kick-off. This affected its functioning and also the initially planned mobility of teachers. Major obstacles are financial. Although severa international organisms have been collaborating Students have been having the opportunity for mobility in the Africa continent, but the challenges are related to differences at universities curricula,

66 Cristina L.M. Silva Brussels, 4 – 5th December 2008 Slide 65 Challenges To improve student mbility in the field of food studies it is necessary: - EU to support - reform the DRC educational study system and line it up with the Bologna process. Support from the EU in mobility - missin financing - laboratory and didactic equipment transfer from DRC, African & European Universities
