What is the goal of the training program?

The main purpose of the Erasmus+ STT week on New Ways of Thinking is to provide participants with skills related to concept development, applied creativity, prototyping, and experimentation. When design thinking approaches are applied to universities, the success rate for innovation improves substantially. Creative thinking, design thinking and critical thinking are powerful processes of problem solving that begin with understanding unmet needs. Participants will interact in a dynamic scenery, designed to foster dialogue and debate, being constantly challenged through tasks and case studies consisting of implemented projects.

Whom does it address?

Participants to the training should be members of the academic community, either teaching or administrative staff, with an English level of B1 or above, looking to develop and/or improve their knowledge of new ways of thinking applied to the academic field. PhD candidates and researchers are also more than welcome to join.

How is the program structured?

The training program will take place in the lovely city of Timisoara, Romania. Timisoara is also known as the ‘little Vienna’ because of its habsburgic look and traces of the Austrian Empire. Timisoara was elected European Capital of Culture for 2023 because of its beauty, rich cultural life and peaceful blend of ethnic minorities. The training program will be divided into presentations and workshops. With a total duration of 25 hours, the classes will take place from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm (except from the Cultural Immersion Day, see the annexed preliminary program). After completion, all participants will be awarded Erasmus+ Staff Mobility (STT) certificates. The training includes also a cultural immersion day filled with fun, knowledge and experiences.

Can the training be funded through Erasmus+ STT grants?

Yes, each participant can apply for a mobility grant within his/her/their institution. We will provide all the required documentation for the Erasmus+ STT grant applicants: invitation, training curricula and certificate of attendance.

What is the cost of the program?

The program package costs 700 euro and it includes:
