welcome to the IMPI toolbox. This toolbox is meant to support you in defining indicators for measuring internationalisation whether it is for the purpose of self-assessment, benchmarking or other uses. In order to understand the functionality of the toolbox properly please consult the introductory tutorial.
The toolbox uses around 500 possible indicators from which you can choose. In many cases, it will be necessary to define terms very carefully, especially if you want to compare data with other HEIs. For this purpose, a glossary is being provided which tries at providing definition of the most common or also least know technical terms used in the toolbox. The definitions in this glossary are taken from a variety of sources or created by the IMPI team. They are neither exhaustive nor fully authoritative, but are provided to help guide users to a fundamental understanding of key terms used in the IMPI toolbox. For benchmarking purposes, the partners must decide what, if any, other defining characteristics might be applied to the common understanding of each term.
The IMPI team hopes that the toolbox will provide useful information for your exercis
