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 internationalisation, 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.
