The training week is directed to administrative staff dealing with international cooperation and exchange programmes.

The programme will comprise a range of issues related to internationalisation through interactive group sessions including, in this edition, workshops and short certificated training course 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.

We have designed a draft programme with the intention to offer an enriching international and intercultural learning experience and the opportunity to discuss interesting and important topics related to internationalisation.

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:

Participation costs can be funded via ERASMUS+ staff mobility funds – if you are interested, please contact katrin.hasenhuendl(at)  for further information.

Accommodation for all participants (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;

  • 5 Lunches from Monday 24th to Friday 28th;
  • 24 hours Travel card for local public transportation in Porto;
  • Information Kit;
  • Coffee-breaks;
  • Social Programme;
  • Institutional Dinner;
  • Certificate of attendance.

Since the number of participants will be limited to  45, we recommend the interested candidates to fill in the online application form as soon as possible, until September 12th 2014 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 September 26th.

Please be aware that we can allow a maximum 2 (two) representatives from each institution and only candidates working in International Cooperation fields are eligible to be selected.

The programme we are sending you is provisional. After the admission the participants will receive the final programme.
