University of Iceland International Staff Training Days

May 16-18, 2018

University of Iceland, Reykjavik

The University of Iceland pleased to announce that International Staff Training Days will be held 16-18 May 2018.
The Staff Days are open to university employees working in the field of international relations and mobility.
We especially welcome colleagues from our AURORA 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?

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. The fee includes a welcome reception, dinner Thursday evening, handouts, lunches, coffee, and refreshments and the excursion.  Please note that participants are responsible for covering their own accommodation and travel costs.

The deadline for applications is 22 January 2018. Limited places available.
Applications will be answered by 1 February 2018.
