International Relations Coordinators (IRC) Working Group
The International Relations Coordinators (IRC) Working Group is in charge of the organization of the AEC Annual meeting for International Relations Coordinators. This meeting is meant for administrative or teaching staff members in Conservatoires who deal with international relations and European programmes (such as ERASMUS), as well as for institutions not familiar with these programmes, but with an interest in becoming involved.
This meeting is important for networking, exchanging useful information and for developing partnerships. With this annual meeting, the AEC is bringing together a growing community of International Relations Coordinators. The programme of the meeting, as well as other important documents and policies on the field of international relations of conservatoires, are the result of the collaboration between the AEC office and the Working Group.
The group is also in charge of the monitoring of the online tools supporting mobility among HMEIs: the AEC website database, the AEC Job Vacancy Platform and the European Online Application System for Mobility EASY.
