INTERNATIONAL WEEK at the University of Porto, 29th of June - 3rd of July 2015 in Porto, Portugal

This Staff Training Week, in English language, is open to administrative staff from different departments such as International Cooperation, Human Resources and Academic Affairs. With an intensive programme focused in the expansion of cooperation (through new tools and financial possibilities), this capacity building will offer an enriching international and intercultural learning experience and the opportunity to discuss interesting and important topics related to each department fields of interest. The activities will comprise a range of issues through interactive group sessions including workshops and short certificated training courses, among others. With this initiative, we wish to open the University of Porto to our partners and other foreign universities in order to strengthen international cooperation by encouraging the exchange of best practices and experiences.

In order to make more comfortable the organization of the participants’ travel to Porto, we decided to centralize in our office the reservations of accommodation and meals assuring special rates for our guests (through specific protocols with hotels and restaurants in the city). Therefore, there will be a fee of 550,00 Euros/participant, which will include both work and social programme:

  • Accommodation (in a Hotel in Porto downtown close to the main touristic attractions and also to the Rectorate – 10 min. walking distance) for 6 nights in a single room with breakfast included;
  • Information Kit
  • Visit to the University Facilities
  • Travel card for local public transportation in Porto
  • Networking activities
  • Workshops
  • Lunches
  • Coffee-breaks
  • 1 Multicultural Dinner
  • Certificate of attendance

Since the number will be limited to 100 participants, we recommend the interested candidates to fill in the online application form as soon as possible, until May 17th 2015 the latest.

The selection will be made on the basis of position, experience, motivation, home institution/country and the results will be sent to each participant shortly after the application deadline, by May 22nd. Please be aware that we can allow a maximum 2 (two) representatives from each institution.
