Mendel University in Brno has the pleasure of inviting you to our Spring International Week 2020, which will take place from the 23rd to the 27th of March, 2020. The IW 2020 will give participants a unique opportunity to find out more about our university, network and share best practices with other colleagues working for the international, study abroad offices or professional academics. The 5-day programme includes round table discussions, presentations, problem-solving cases and social events. The main objectives of the programme include networking, transfer of knowledge and sharing of experiences and best practices among colleagues from partner and non-partner institutions. Participants are expected to bring into the discussion examples from their own institutions and present best practices or innovative approaches to the issues addressed. In the context of cultural activities, participants will have the chance to go on a guided tour of Brno city and the UNESCO heritage castle Lednice. The selection of participants must take into consideration the relevance of their professional responsibilities. If all applicants fulfil the criteria, we will apply the first-come and first-served principle, moreover, if you are not selected it’s not necessarily personal! Priority will be given to partner Universities. Please see the registration form below.

The programme will contain activities as follows:

TARGET GROUP: Both academic and non-academic staff of different fields of study (please, specify your specialization in the registration form)

WORKING LANGUAGE: English (at least level B2 is required)

COSTS: Participation in International Week is 90 EUR. The participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation costs (it is recommended to use an Erasmus + grant provided by your home university).

ACCOMMODATION: We can provide accommodation at our halls of residence upon request.

REGISTRATION: Registration will be opened until 31/1/2020. After this term, the International Week coordinators will contact the selected participants.
