The UNIVERSITY OF THE BASQUE COUNTRY is organizing its Second Staff Training Week (STW) on 6-10 June 2016, focused on Internationalization, with University of Bordeaux as special guest.

The STW will take place at the cities of Donostia/San Sebastián (two nights), Vitoria/Gasteiz (day trip) and Bilbao (two nights). In this way, the participants will be able to get to know the three Campuses of our University and get the most out of our main cities.

We are looking for active participants willing to share innovative ideas and best practices from their home universities. We are organizing a mixture of workshops and presentations of the participants. Meetings with international coordinators at the Faculties could be arranged on demand.

Moreover, this year we will have as special guests to our colleagues from the International Relations Office of University of Bordeaux. Their presence will allow us to tell you about the “Cross border Campus” we share with them. They will also tell all of us about other projects they are currently working in.

Please, check our preliminary programme with the expenses covered by the University of the Basque Country. For accommodation and travel costs, we encourage interested colleagues to apply for Erasmus+ grants available for Staff Mobility.

Programme: http://www.ehu.eus/documents/2099535/0/Programa+for+website.pdf

As places are limited for 25 people, the participants will be selected on the basis of geographical diversity and fields of interest. Participation will be limited to two people per institution.

This year we are especially interested in the participation of colleagues with experience on the internationalization plans of their universities and/or the Erasmus+ KA107 programme, for the mobility between Erasmus+ member countries and partner countries.

The registration will be closed on 22 April 2016.

Registration must be done online via the following link:
