Due to the large number of applications received for the INTERNATIONAL WEEK in May, the University of Porto is pleased to announce that an ”extra” edition will be organized between 6th and the 10th of June, in order to give the possibility to a larger number of applicants to participate in this event.
This edition of the Staff Training Week, in English language, is open to staff in the area of the International Cooperation. 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 this area. 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 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 for all participants for 6 nights in a single room with breakfast included;
- 5 Lunches;
- Information Kit;
- Social Programme;
- Multicultural Dinner;
- Certificate of attendance.
Since the number of participants will be limited for this edition, we recommend the interested candidates to fill in the online application form taking into account the following application deadlines for each edition:
