Postponement of 10th Erasmus Staff Training Week

Printer-friendly version

As recent epidemiological data about COVID-19 indicate a resurgence of the pandemic both in Greece and throughout Europe, we regret to inform that we have come to the hard decision of postponing the 10th edition of our Erasmus+ Staff Training Week, meant to take place between 19th and 23rd October, 2020.

We hope that we will able to transfer this successful event sometime in the spring semester 2020-2021, if circumstances allow for such a decision, and invite again all partner institutions and colleagues to join us for an exciting week of sharing of common experiences and best practices.

Thank you very much for your understanding!

The main purposes of the 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, discussing the current issue of refugee-migrants entering Higher Education, exploring and discussing special topics of interest, etc.


 *The Staff Training will take place should the worldwide conditions allow it.
