SCRIBE 21 Project


SCRIBE 21 is a Consortium of five universities from Europe and Australia coordinated by EM Strasbourg Business School. The Consortium is funded through a grant from the European Commission’s Industrialised Countries Instrument – Education Cooperation Programme (ICI-ECP) and by the Australian Government.


Launched in December 2013, the Consortium builds upon an established network of universities and is intended to create international business synergies between Europe and Australia in the 21st century.
Three of the participating universities are HERMES members: EM Strasbourg Business School, University of Adelaide (Australia), University of Western Australia (Australia), Corvinus University (Hungary) and Ca’ Foscari University (Italy).


Organisation of the Consortium


12 dual degree combinations will be offered within the Consortium, and cooperation will also envisage staff exchanges and joint research projects between participating universities.
Participating students will need to complete one year of study at their home university (which must be one of the five participating universities) and the second year of study at another participating university (in Australia for European students and in Europe for Australian students). Upon completing the programme, students will be awarded two masters’ degrees: the degree of their home university and the degree of their host university.


In addition to the dual degrees, all participating students will take part in the integrated winter, spring and summer sessions organised by EM Strasbourg Business School in winter (co-organised in partnership with the European Parliament), by Ca’ Foscari University in spring and by Adelaide and/or Perth in summer. These are intended to help students understand the strategic context in which they are going to apply their skills and will tackle such themes as the EU and Australia as global players, opportunities and challenges for regional integration in the EU and the Pacific area, agro and natural resources markets, etc. Moreover, skills development workshops will be offered within each session.


Student exchanges within the dual degree programme are expected to start in January 2015. Each participating university will decide on the specific eligibility requirements for joining the programme and interested students need to contact their home universities for more information.
