PIE (Platform Internationalisation ELIA) is a platform for discussion, cooperation and guidance for your institution’s approach to internationalisation. 

PIE is a new platform for sharing knowledge on implementing the different facets of internationalisation within higher arts education institutions. And of course, we will indulge in some real pie during the meetings – food for thought and body!

ELIA facilitates the activities of this platform, which represent the multidisciplinary and multi-cultural character of the ELIA network. 


Faced with the challenges of internationalisation in the 21st century, the platform raise questions and issues within internationalisation in higher arts education institutions.

More in detail, PIE focuses on internationalisation within arts education, including:
  • Implementation of strategies and policies
  • Impact of internationalisation on curriculum development
  • Students and staff development through internationalisation
  • Supporting exchanges and institutional cooperation
PIE strives to form a bridge between the ambitions of international officers and policymakers and the reality within the departments of the International Office and follows the ELIA Strategic Focus 2016-2020.


PIE is open to policymakers, deans and heads of internationalisation, teachers and other staff members of ELIA Member Institutions who are researching, advising on and making strategies and policies. 

PIE is initiated by ELIA thanks to Aparajita Dutta and Thomas Greenough with the aim of establishing a grassroots group involved in researching and implementing internationalisation in higher arts education institutions.
