Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) is pleased to invite you to the International Conference and Erasmus+ Staff Week in the picturesque capital city of Riga!

The Conference and Staff Week will address issues such as strategically managed internationalisation and its challenges, partnership-building with international stakeholders, mobility and exchanges, international scholarships and so forth. The delegates of this conference will be the staff of international offices. 

Each day the conference programme will be divided into morning sessions with speakers and panel discussions, and afternoon sessions that will consist of workshops and discussions. 

RSU is one of the leading public universities in the Baltic States. Last year the University celebrated its 65th anniversary. Although it was established as a medical institute in 1950, over the years it has expanded its academic reach by adding other healthcare disciplines, as well as social sciences and humanities. RSU has been educating international students for the past 25 years. Currently international students from 52 different countries constitute 22% of the University’s full-time, degree-seeking student body. RSU has also developed a broad network of partnerships with 150 universities abroad.
