As Universities in Europe and worldwide are striving to continue their international activities and enhance international cooperation and partnerships after a couple of years of physical mobility restrictions, due to the pandemic, we will be expecting our guests in an exciting environment, with a rich programme of visits, cultural events, and activities to refresh the motivation of participants in internationalisation.

The main purpose of the 2nd DUTH International Week is to strengthen as well as to widen the cooperation with partner Institutions, to facilitate networking and to promote the establishment of new collaborations.

Participants will be have the opportunity to to present their home universities and projects, to share good practices and to exchange ideas about fostering student and staff mobility while conducting training activities in topics of interest, such as the implementation of the new Erasmus+ programme, digital tools in Higher Education, inclusion and much more.

Academic and administrative staff will share a common programme, except for Wednesday 5 October when they will split to have different activities; for academic staff emphasis will be put on the development of pedagogical and curriculum design skills for HEIs.
