We have up to five places for UK higher education institution representatives to attend a contact seminar in Istanbul in October 2018.
The seminar will gather approximately 200 representatives from HEIs from all 33 Programme Countries and Serbia, as well as from the Central Asian countries (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan).
The aim is to help HEIs establish links with partners in different countries, with a view to submitting applications together. The event will cover all international actions of Erasmus+, with a particular focus on International Credit Mobility and Capacity Building in Higher Education. There will be networking sessions and a series of workshops addressing topics such as recognition, application forms, selection and support to participants.
The European Commission will cover the accommodation and catering expenses of all participants. However, participants will be asked to cover their own travel expenses. The proposed attendees should be familiar with international cooperation activities and be qualified to negotiate new (or expand existing) partnership agreements.
Higher education institution rapresentatives are invited to send an expression of interest up to 500 words outlining why they would be suitable and want to attend the event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline to submit the EOI is Tuesday 19 June 2018.
