This strategic partnership is about innovation in higher education by the implementation of blended education in the partnership and beyond. The partnership consists of frontrunner universities in blended education European wide for full expert representation. EMBED will create a reference model for developing and implementing blended learning, embracing all levels of an institution: the design of the blended course, organisational aspects such as staff support and training, and institutional leadership, developing policies and strategies making the institution continuously innovative.


It is a maturity model with criteria and instruments to assess the degree of maturity of blended education and innovation. Connected with this is a framework for change, based on progress markers related to stakeholder-focused outcomes. Internal stakeholders are learners, teaching staff, teaching and learning departments, technology departments and university leadership. External stakeholders, influencing practices and policies in universities: governments, European university networks and the EU level.
