5th Erasmus Staff Training Week - ERACON

Εκτυπώσιμη μορφή


Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is organizing its 5th Erasmus Staff Training Week in parallel to the ERACON 2016 Conference, from the 9th till the 13th of May 2016, in Thessaloniki.

The main purpose of this event is to widen and strengthen the cooperation with our partner institutions, to share our different experiences on internationalization, 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. They will be allowed to exchange ideas about fostering student and staff mobility, to present their home universities, structures and working practices, to explore and discuss special topics of interest within the field of internationalisation, and much more.





The Staff Week is aimed for colleagues from partners and non‐partners Universities working in various departments, and who are dealing with issues occurring by the international dimension of higher education.

A maximum of two participants from each institution will be selected.

In case of high number of applications, Aristotle University will examine all applications and select the final list of candidates.



The programme includes:

  • Presentation of Aristotle University, along with a brief presentation of the Greek higher education system
  • Presentations by all participants
  • Workshops



Apart from the work meetings, we are organizing a tour around Thessaloniki's main cultural sites, some informal social events, the attendance of a major cultural event, and an excursion to one of the worldwide known archaeological sites of the Northern Greece.



The application period is till March 31, 2016

By the mid of April, all applicants will be informed by e‐mail whether their application was approved or not.



The accommodation cost will be covered by the participants. However, the organizers can suggest a variety of possible convenient solutions, taking into consideration the location, the service quality and the price range of the lodgings. Further details will be mailed to the participants, after the confirmation of the mobility.



The compulsory participation fee at the Erasmus Staff Training Week and the ERACON conference is 150€, while the compulsory participation fee for the participants of the ERACON Conference only is approx. 200-380€.
