Given that 'mobility still remains the exception rather than the rule' (COM(2009) 329: 5), there is a need of further innovative efforts in promoting it, above all in higher education. Also, the quality of the young Europeans' mobility must be taken into account, since it is well known that residence in a foreign country does not of itself reduce students' stereotypical perceptions of otherness (Shaules, 2007; Strong, 2011).
IEREST will meet these needs by developing an Intercultural Path (namely, a set of teaching modules) to be provided to Erasmus students before, during, and after their experience abroad, in order to encourage learning mobility and to support students in benefiting as much as possible from their international experiences in terms of personal growth and intercultural awareness.
