Are you a professional working in career services, university libraries, research support, welcome services or international affairs?  ​

Then we are happy to invite you to participate in Freie Universität Berlin’s 11th International Staff Training Week 2023, which will take place for five full days from June 26 to June 30, 2023.

Five different units of Freie Universität Berlin’s central university administration, the Career Service, the Welcome Service for staff, the University Library, the Research Support Office as well as the Office of International Affairs have created a total of six interactive programs to engage with colleagues from all over the world during the week. The programs will allow enough time for sharing expertise, developing competences and peer learning as well as for networking, strengthening partnerships and socially interacting with colleagues from all four track.

Managing International Networks Program

My strategy, our network: maintaining impact and motivation in multi-lateral networks

Working in international relations, our international agendas, institutional strategies, and organizational particularities shape the way we structure and advance our international work. In cooperating with those outside of our institutions, especially in multilateral networks, it becomes harder to remain true to our own goals while in the same time negotiating common ground with others. During this program we will exchange good practice of multi-stakeholder management in international networks; discuss aspects of local, national, and international networks; learn about conflict resolution and strategy implementation in networks, and explore unique solutions to common problems. And while we learn a lot, we will also have some fun and the chance to build new networks.


The registration process ended. Due to the high number of applications received, unfortunately no late applications can be considered.

Participation Fee

The participation fee is 100 € per participant, which includes a welcome package, lunches and coffee breaks, an evening reception and a joint boat trip. You are kindly asked to cover the participation fee as well as other expenses for travel, accommodation and dinner by using Erasmus+ training mobility grants.
