International projects

Turiba University is actively expanding its international cooperation, initiating, developing, and implementing various local, national, and international projects.

We believe that the development of the University is inconceivable without innovative initiatives, the creation of new teaching approaches and methods, and without international collaboration. To prepare high-quality new professionals, it is essential for our university to provide opportunities for learning in an international environment, meeting lecturers, and professionals from around the world. Therefore, we realize international projects in collaboration with universities and partners worldwide.

Through these projects, we have developed new and innovative educational resources and tools, published books, organized international conferences, exchange trips, study visits, summer schools, and other activities.

We have extensive experience in international project management and have been actively involved in coordinating projects such as Central Baltic Interreg, Erasmus Mundus, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program, European Social fund, JUSTICE, NORDPLUS, and ERASMUS+ projects.

Project department initiate and implement projects in collaboration with our faculties and their experts. We are excited to collaborate and bring your ideas to life! Get in touch with us:

„SaveComp” project

In February 2016 Turiba as a partner University started to implement „SaveComp” project co-funded by the European Union. Project is initiated and led by University of Genoa (Italy).

„SaveComp” project aims to collect and develop best practices in cross border cases for the survival of distressed companies. It is co-funded by the Action grants to support judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters JUST/2014/JCOO/AG/CIVI/7693 of the European Union.

Following a practical comparative international methodology, the goal of the Project is to collect and exchange best practices in the field of insolvency and pre-insolvency cross-border proceedings, so to help office holders in insolvency proceedings to better coordinate and implement international cooperation, thus enhancing management of multiple proceedings, reoganisation of companies and the protection of creditors and interests of stakeholders.

The Project aims at collecting best practices, rules of PIL and case law in insolvency and pre-insolvency cross-border proceedings at the domestic level, so to disseminate these first results. Moreover, the Project aims to compare the domestic best practices (either already followed in the MSs involved in the research, or suggested by the Partners) so as to possibly develop and exchange best practices which might be of use in cross-border proceedings.

The Project, to identify areas of insolvency and pre-insolvency cross-border proceedings where best practices could enhance the possibility to save distressed companies, enhance protection of cross-border creditors and stakeholders, foresees the involvement of practitioners to help identify problematic issues and already developed best practices, called to answer a practitioner questionnaires, and participate to the local and final conferences.

The collected case law and legislation will be available on the database unalex, and will be freely accessible.

The Project also foresees conferences in Amsterdam, Valencia, Sofia, Riga andGenoa.

The final output, an e-book collecting the results of the Project, comprising national reports of the involved MS and a commentary to the relevant applicable rules of private international law in light of possible best practices to overcome issues in the cross-border management of insolvency and pre-insolvency proceedings, will also be freely available online.
