Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is organizing its 4th Erasmus Staff Training Week from the 12th till the 16th of October 2015 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 European Universities (partners and non‐partners) 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 faculties, activities and campuses, along with a brief presentation of the Greek higher education system
- Presentations by all participants: Best practices: strengths and opportunities (5-7 min)
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.
