The University of Porto is pleased to announce its 2nd edition of the INTERNATIONAL WEEK 2018,

23rd till 27th July (English Language)

This second edition of the Staff Training Week in English language is open to administrative staff from International Cooperation. With an intensive programme focused in the expansion of cooperation (through new tools and financial possibilities), this capacity building will offer an enriching international and intercultural learning experience and the opportunity to discuss interesting and important topics. The activities will comprise a range of issues through interactive group sessions including workshops and short certificated training courses, among others. With this initiative, we wish to open the University of Porto to our partners and other foreign universities in order to strengthen international cooperation by encouraging the exchange of best practices and experiences.

In order to make more comfortable the organization of the participants’ travel to Porto, we centralize in our office the reservations of meals assuring special rates for our guests (through specific protocols with restaurants in the city). Therefore, there will be a fee of 250,00 Euros/participant, which will include both work and social programme:
