Ashkelon Academic College invests much effort in developing meaningful collaborations with fellow academics and academic institutions. Our scholars are both members and initiators of international research consortiums, cooperating with experts from other universities in Europe, the United States and East Asia (for example, the INCO, COST and H2020 programs). We are in the process of developing capacity mobility projects with institutes in Europe for building new educational programs and arranging exchange programs for faculty and students (ERASMUS+). In order to facilitate international cooperation projects and consortia activities, AAC has partnered with IP&D (Innovation Projects and Development LTD), an SME with 20 years of experience in initiating and managing consortia and coordinating projects on a national and international level, with expertise in EU projects. Current international collaborations are described below.
