Swiss Global Competence Lab (SGCL)
At a glance
Addressing the needs of Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) previously identified in an ongoing internationalization project, this project takes a further step towards internationalization of the curriculum (IoC) in Swiss higher education context. The primary objective of this project is to build a dynamic organizational unit, called Swiss Global Competence Lab (SGCL), which is capable of responding to trends and emerging needs in internationalization of higher education in Switzerland. The SGCL is envisioned as the leading Centre of Excellence for R&D, teaching and services in the area of IoC. It also facilitates international collaboration and consultation with leading experts in the field (e.g., Center for International Higher Education in Boston, USA; the Network IoC Global in Action, Australia).
