International Staff Week

International Staff Week

Incoming Lehrende & Staff 2

FH JOANNEUM is happy to welcome colleagues from partner universities to share their experiences at our International Staff Week which takes place May 9th - 13th 2022.

This year’s International Week runs under the topic “Sustainability”. Different workshops will be held on technological, social, economic sustainability and what each of us can do to make our institutions and our living more sustainable. We are very eager to share our experiences and hear some best-practice examples of our participants.
A diverse program of presentations, group discussions and fun cultural and social activities will be offered. During the week our international colleagues will not only get to know FH JOANNEUM in Graz but also our campus in Kapfenberg. The participants are expected to present their home institution at our International Fair on May 15th 2022, where they will also have the chance to meet our students and staff.

Who can participate?

Our staff week is directed at staff coming from various divisons of a university (International Office, Gender & Diversity, Library, Student Administration, Facility Management, Human Relations, Health Services for Staff…).
There will also be time for job shadowing sessions. An extra workshop is offered for librarians.
Only staff from partner universities of FH JOANNEUM can participate in the International Week.
The international staff week is a good opportunity for colleagues to visit us in the frame of an Erasmus+ Staff Exchange (KA131 and KA171).

How to register?

Registration will be open from now on till March 15th 2022 under this link.
Working language will be English.
A participation fee of € 150 will be charged. The organized social program and lunches are free.
Participants have to cover travel and hotel costs as well as costs for possible activities outside of the organized program on their own. We recommend colleagues from our Erasmus+ partner universities (KA103) to apply for an Erasmus+ grant in the International Office of their home institution.
Please do not book flights and hotel before you have received a mail that confirms that you are selected to participate. We would appreciate it if you restricted the number of registrations to one person per university since the maximum number of participants is 20-25. Thank you.
