About the Project

The InComm project is implemented by 6 universities coming from different European countries, having different traditions and operating under different national frameworks. At the same time all of the partner institutions are active internationally, attract annually thousands of Master and PhD students from other countries to study and pursue academic carriers in Europe. Together with the large number of incoming students comes understanding that these young professionals shall feel welcomed at every stage of their study process and shall be integrated in social environments at their respective universities as well as socio-economic environment that the institution is a part of – legal framework, culture, accommodation, leisure – everything which makes the life bright, meaningful and enjoyable. The ultimate goal is that international students coming to our institutions are able carry out their studies from day one and become a part of social life of our cities, regions and countries.

We created a website where other institutions can refer back to as a way to not only understand the scope of our project better, but to also use our outcomes and tools to their advantage. They now have the opportunity to take what we’ve learned, what worked and didn’t work to improve their own welcome processes in their institutions. Below you can find our Accessibility Statement and Privacy Policy for setting up this website.

The InComm team, along with the participants of the online Collective Intelligence Conference, created drafts of the Customer Journeys for PhD and master’s students. View the drafts on the CIC event page:

The training modules will cover the following topics:

  • Improving integration at home
  • Accessibility to universities worldwide
  • Tackling inclusion as well as social differences
  • Supporting academic staff working in the field of welcoming and onboarding
The training modules are currently being developed. Our next meeting regarding this topic will be the “Building the inclusive university culture, from ideas to implementation” Training Programme at TU Graz.

The InComm+ Tool will provide a quick insight into the status of the feeling of belonging for newcomers. The tool will give an insight on the strong and weak points of the institutions welcome process, and link directly to projects that can strengthen the Customer Journey. The InComm+ Tool is currently in development.
