ERASMUS+ International Staff Week 2018



Sharing experience, expertise and knowledge in international context

The Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg is inviting colleagues from partner universities in Europe to participate in the ERASMUS + Staff Week that will take place from 27th to 30th of November 2018 in Magdeburg. 

The program of the Staff Week is varied but the primary focus will be on the issue of academic recognition. Sessions and workshops will include presentations of best practices from the OVGU and participating partner institutions as well as discussion about the common challenges in international student and staff mobility. A number of opportunities for networking will be provided through cultural activities, welcome dinner and coffee breaks in-between the sessions. You will have a chance to visit the Christmas Market in Magdeburg and enjoy the Advent atmosphere with traditional German Glühwein and Christmas snacks.
