Erasmus Policy Statement - ECHE

The “Lorenzo Perosi" State Conservatory of Music in Campobasso, founded in 1971, is the only Institution of AFAM (Higher Education in Arts, Music and Choreography) within the Molise Region. The Conservatory participates in the Erasmus+ project since the early 2000s; during these years it has increased the number of European partners, and it has organized activities and mobilities of students and teachers in line with the principles and objectives of its first ECHE charter.

The Conservatory has joined the Erasmus+ project to compare itself with other European countries to promote social and intellectual mobility, innovation, the circulation of learning and skills, the creation of job and first employment expectations.

We believed and believe that internationalisation is one of the most important investment for the future. Therefore, according to the innovative proposals of the Bologna Declaration of 1999 and Erasmus+ project, the Conservatory of Campobasso aims to concentrate its attention and its energy on students and staff mobility to reach some objectives, such as:

- to study analogies and differences between two realities till today, in order to find connections and some shared guidelines relative to the curricula and the degrees issued by the conservatory itself and the European institutions;

- to study the characteristic musical expressions of other countries both from the ethnomusicological point of view, the compositive musical style and performance one;

- to embark on a work of musicology research of the similarities of the musical heritage of the past and the new future directions;

- to embark on a research at the use of multimedia, on the comparative innovation of teaching methods, on the guidance for insertion in the productive systems.

The core of the 2021-2027 strategy of the Conservatory is to reinforce and develop international cooperation, extending the international exchanges also to extra-European countries, such as some South America countries (eg Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil). The selection criteria of partners range from exchange sustainability (both financial and geographical), reciprocity, curricula diversity and integration, potential job careers offered in the host country.


Target Groups:

• Mobility Enhancement

- With reference to study mobility, our purpose is to increase the number of outgoing students by 100% within 2027

- Training mobility will be encouraged as well and developed by means of specific agreements with enterprises operating in the music and art sectors.

- A further step towards a better integration between new learning and teaching approaches will be moved with an increase of 30% teachers mobility within 2027.

- The administrative staff training will be promoted in the belief that a sharing of best practices may be highly effective on projects management and resources management.


• Increase attractiveness

Our Institute, caused its geographical position, is not attracting a great number of foreign students. Our purpose is increase by 50% the actual UE and extra-UE countries students rate (50%).

The Conservatory of Campobasso is committed to foster international cooperation and promote the actual projects, started in recent years, which have led, for instance, to the creation of a joint ensemble with several European Institutes (e.g. Germany, Austria, Hungary, Spain) focusing in monographic or thematic projects to realize all together, with study sessions, rehearsals and live music performances (for instance the "Beethoven Festival" in Freiburg, 2019, and "Percussion Festival" in Campobasso, 2019).

The above mentioned cooperation will be extended by means of a multilateral receptiveness towards further partners and through collaboration to new projects (e.g. operatic, ancient and baroque music, and distance education).

Our priority is a better integration of the diverse student components, in order to overcome the language and culture barriers, and to reduce the scholar dropouts rate.

A systematic comparison with parallel education systems, both of the European and the extra-European countries, may reinforce the need for a third cycle of studies in music high education, which in Italy is still to be experimented. In this way, expanding the educational offer, we will able to create "new" professionals with new skills, that may satisfy the demand of the music entrepreneurship’s changing world in a more appropriate way.
