International experience has been linked to different advantages: personal growth and development, enhanced career opportunities, broadened networks, strengthened knowledge and skills, intercultural awareness and many more. Today there are multiple opportunities for university stakeholders to acquire international experience. Although the number of individuals who enjoy these opportunities continues to increase, many others still encounter obstacles of financial, personal, professional and informational nature.


This fourth international conference and Erasmus+ staff week will be dedicated to the theme of inclusive internationalisation. The goal of this event will be to identify ways that more diverse groups of university stakeholders can benefit from various internationalisation initiatives.


This event will cover varied activities:
