  • The main purposes of the Erasmus Staff Training Weeks held every year at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is to widen and strengthen the cooperation with our partner institutions, to share our different experiences on internationalization and to facilitate networking and establishment of new partnerships. Participants will be given the opportunity to learn from the experiences and good practices of the partner institutions and focus on relevant discussions such as exchanging ideas about fostering student and staff mobility, presenting their home universities as well as structures and working practices, exploring and discussing special topics of interest, etc.


  • Academic libraries face significant challenges resulting from declining budgets and aging staff. At the same time, demands for innovative information services are escalating due to dramatic changes in scholarly communication trends and rapid evolution of information technologies. Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Library & Information Centre (AUTh Library) invites library staff (librarians, information specialists, Library IT staff, etc.) to share ideas, knowledge and expertise. Such exchange may enable collaboration and provide solutions to common problems.

AUTh Library will welcome library staff experienced or interested in open access, management of special collections, information literacy, and scholarly communication. The AUTh Library will organize presentations, guided tours and social events to provide participants with a stimulating stay in Thessaloniki, the second biggest city of sunny Greece!
