Academic Staff

We invite academic staff to give lectures from a variety of fields, such as management, economics, finance, health, international relations, IT, political science and other topics to provide a multi-faceted insight into current issues. Possible topics can include corporate social responsibility management and controlling, Artificial Intelligence, digitalization, sustainability or socio-ecological transformation.

International Relations Staff / non-academic staff

We invite colleagues from a variety of areas, such as International Relations, Erasmus Offices, Inclusion and Diversity, to participate in our workshops and activities. Participants are welcome to present experiences and related topics. The focus in 2024 will be on social inclusion and equal opportunities in the Erasmus program. Social participation and diversity are key themes of the Erasmus+ program generation 2021-2027.

- How can universities contribute to more equal opportunities with Erasmus+?

- What impact does social inclusion have on outgoing and incoming mobility?

- Do International Offices need to reposition themselves in order to attract students with fewer opportunities?

- What measures to increase inclusion and diversity are supported in the various European countries?

- What are inclusion strategies of the individual universities?

- Where can we learn from each other?
