International Staff Training Days will be held at the University of Iceland 16-18 May 2018. The Staff Days are hosted by the International Office and are open to university employees working in the field of international relations and mobility at their institution. We especially welcome colleagues from our partner universities.

This year’s theme is Quality of Mobility. The programme will include talks, presentations and interactive workshops revolving around these central questions:

• What are the key indicators of quality in mobility? How can we measure the quality of existing partnerships? 

• How can digital technology be used to improve the quality of mobility?

• How can we increase mobility to/from less active faculties and to/from less active partners? 


The International Staff Training Days provide a unique opportunity to develop personal and professional skills relating to internationalisation and mobility, participate in cultural events and network with colleagues from a wide range of international higher education institutions.

Highlights of the program include our ever-popular international tasting reception, professional guest lecturers, a networking dinner in downtown Reykjavík plus an excursion to the Krýsuvík Geothermal Area. Details of the program will be published later.

Participation fee is 190€ for the full programme from noon, Wednesday and all-day Thursday & Friday. The fee includes two lunches, a welcome reception, dinner Thursday evening, handouts, coffee and refreshments and the excursion.  Please note that participants are responsible for covering their own accommodation and travel costs.

The deadline for submitting an application is 22 January 2018. Limited places available. 

Applications will be answered by 1 February 2018.
