In an era marked by rapid changes, the resilience of universities has never been more crucial. Our upcoming International Week is dedicated to the multifaceted concept of resilience within the higher education sector. Together, we will share best practices, learn from experts, and collaborate on building a roadmap towards a more resilient future for our universities.

The IW 2024 will give participants a unique opportunity to find out more about our university, network and share best practices with other colleagues working for the international, study abroad offices or professional academics. The 5-day programme includes round table discussions, presentations, problem-solving cases and social events. The main objectives of the programme include networking, transfer of knowledge and sharing of experiences and best practices among colleagues from partner and non-partner institutions. Participants are expected to bring into the discussion examples from their institutions and present best practices or innovative approaches to the issues addressed. In the context of cultural activities, participants will have the chance to go on a guided tour of Brno city and a field trip to Punkva Caves. The selection of participants must take into consideration the relevance of their professional responsibilities. If all applicants fulfil the criteria, we will apply the first-come and first-served principle, moreover, if you are not selected it’s not necessarily personal! Priority will be given to partner Universities. Please register yourselves in this form. 

The programme will contain activities as follows: 

- Lectures (given by participants) and Workshops

- Tour of faculty facilities and laboratories

- Individual meetings with representatives of the particular departments and discussion on cooperation possibilities
