Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce 1st Erasmus+  Staff Training  Week which will be held at Kazimierz Wielki University from 21 to 25 May 2018. 

The date is not a coincidence as at that time Bydgoszcz will be a venue of 9th Science Festival organised by Kazimierz Wielki University in cooperation with several local universities.

The event is addressed to teaching and administrative staff working in the international environment at their home institutions.

The programme is varied but focused mainly on two issues: cross-cultural communication and managing Erasmus+ projects. Our aim is to help you enhance your cultural sensitivity and competence as well as gain better understanding of cultural challenges and encourage positive cross-cultural relationships. The other goal of the training week is to share our experience in managing Erasmus+ projects, outgoing and incoming mobilities included.  Participation will also provide an excellent opportunity to network, share best practices and success stories with other colleagues working in the international environment as well as polish your Polish language.

There is a compulsory fee of approx. €50 paid upon arrival for a cultural programme which covers  guided tours of Bydgoszcz and neighbouring town of Toruń, transport, lunches, entrance tickets and some local tourist attractions. 

Participants are expected to cover their own travel and living expenses. Representatives of programme countries have the possibility to apply for Erasmus + Staff Training mobility grants at their home institutions (participants are requested to contact their home institution for STT funding, where possible).

Please send the completed registration form until February 28, 2018 to

Confirmation of selection results will be sent to all participants by e-mail after 28 February 2018. Hotel recommendations and a final programme will be sent only to selected participants. Please do not make any travel arrangements before your participation is confirmed.

If there is anything else you would like to know, do not hesitate to contact Aleksandra Koperska-Kowalczyk at

Looking forward to seeing you in May,
