Workshops (17:00 - 18:00)   

Strategic opportunities for university networks - Daniel Casten - 7th floor Rectorate building

Practical issues in partnership development and strategic alliances. In this workshop we will discuss practical aspects of developing partnerships utilizing common modes of cooperation that drive institutional goals.

Opportunities for ELLS in KA1 projects (BIPs and PhD mobilities) - Lukáš Pospíšil - FEM D138

BIP = Blended Intensive Programme. A novelty in the Erasmus+ we are getting used to. We are sure there were good intentions of covid time with BIP when it was born, but let´s talk frankly about its positives and negatives. Can it all BIP?

Opportunities for ELLS in KA2 projects - Jana Pitrová - FEM E255

Why is it worthy to apply for KA2 projects? How to come up with ideas that could work and succeed? What are the examples for Life Sciences KA2 projects? You will get answers for these questions from the point of view of a project coordinator leading several KA2 projects. Moreover, you will be encouraged to think about possible future projects and bring some interesting ideas to the table.

Opportunities for better not only Erasmus+ promotion - Petra Hatalová and Ondřej Votinský - FEM E323

Nowadays, having a solid yet light and up-to-date promotion seems to be a must-have. Especially now, when the number of outgoing students is stagnating. However, how does it fit into a university's - mostly conservative - environment?

Using the knowledge from a unique project CZUgoAbroad, we will share with you not only valuable tips and tricks but also reveal our activities, the thinking behind them, and how much it all costs.

Come with us now on the journey through Instagram and the PR world, where your imagination is the power.
