The EXPERTS consortium consists of 20 partner universities, 7 of which are from European and 13 of which are from South and Southeast Asian (from Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand) Higher Education Institutions.
Each partner plays a specific, and key, role in the consortium and overall implementation of the project. Göttingen University, as the main coordinator, oversees the organisation of the project and manages the scholarships and mobilities.
The Joint Coordinator, IPB Bogor, ensures that the project is more effective in those aspects requiring a deep knowledge of the country, such as the definition of vulnerable categories and the recognition of studies. Regarding the total number of mobility flows, the proposed scheme allows to distribute the project funding to a large number of individuals well over the minimum established by the Call for Proposals.
The associates are chosen as they are the network of universities (such as in Asia - SEARCA and HUC, in Europe: COIMBRA Group, AGRINATURA), and research institutions SIAS - Nepal, TISS and NGOs such as PRADAN and JRS - AP, which ensure the effective dissemination of information about the project.
