Dear Colleagues,

Politécnico de Lisboa (IPL – Lisbon University of Applied Sciences) is pleased to invite you to take part in the 6th International Staff (STA&STT) Week that will be held 24th – 28th April 2017.

The staff week is jointly organized by Politécnico de Lisboa and their eight branches higher school or institutes.

As your institution is an important cooperation partner for us, we would be glad to receive a representative of your institution for the event.

The purpose of the international week is to exchange experiences, benchmark and network, share best practices, enhance co-operation as well as international and intercultural interaction. In addition to these you will have an opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues from IPL, branch schools and participants from other countries.

Since it would be essential to learn from the different ways services are organized in different institutions, the participants are requested to make a short presentation on their home institution/support service.

So we invite you to hold a brief presentation (3/5 minutes) about your institution and job in a presentation workshop (kick off day).

We invite you to present your best practices, examples, different projects outcomes dissemination, ideas and concepts, which will be present, analyzed and discussed in group in the framework of communication workshops.

Participants will thus have the chance to get to know the different units of Politécnico de Lisboa, according their interest.
