This session will outline the history, structure and design of cutting edge, unique student-led projects. It will focus on maximizing stake¬holder engagement and offer oppor-tunities to discuss how to convert your internationalisation strategies into real results across the board at your institu-tion. Emphasis will be placed on practical resource plan-ning and time framing, as well as getting maximum stu-dent and faculty buy in.

Through best practice examples, we will articulate how your institution can benefit from stronger relationships with social and business partners. Our FHNW international student projects deliver international, interdisciplinary, ex-periential learning opportunities for students and staff from across our university. Since 2001, the projects have brought together a broad mix of stakeholders including students and staff at the FHNW and our partner universi-ties, corporate sponsors, governmental and civil society organisations. Corporate sponsors value the contact they have with students and the univer¬sity and increasingly use the projects as a recruiting platform. Students benefit from the degree of independence and empowerment they fos-ter as well as the internationalisation they support.
