International Collaborations

Erasmus+ Coordinator: Elli-Maria Georgiadou, Assoc. Professor

Over the years, the Department of Music Studies (D.M.S.) of the Ionian University has developed a large network of international co-operations, ensuring its representation in the most important international forums, in order to follow the developments concerning the curricula on employability and entrepreneurship in the field of music studies.

As part of its strategic planning, the Department of Music of the Ionian University works intensively towards the provision of internationalised music studies in Greece, through the development of artistic synergies/collaborations, aiming to serve and feature as a reference point in the academic research, artistic creation and development of innovative curricula within the wider region of the Mediterranean. One of our most significant achievements towards this aim was the founding of the Mediterranean Network for Music.

Since 1999, the D.M.S. has hosted over 250 visiting academics from universities and music academies abroad, which is corresponding to 12 visiting academics per year. Equally, every year, 30% of its teaching staff is visiting on professional grounds various Academic Research Centers, Conservatories, Music Academies and Universities abroad.
