    Staff Mobility

    brussels_6This is a unique opportunity to meet your colleagues involved in international cooperation. The report of the Bologna Follow-Up Group (BFUG) working group on mobility will present its report that was delivered to the EHEA Ministerial Conference in Yerevan (Armenia) on 15-16 May 2015.

    Staff mobility is an important issue at institutional level. It is part of the policy and practice in internationalisation. It is a corner stone of the Bologna Process and the development of the European Higher Education and Research Area (EHERA).

    This is the background of EURASHE’s round table on staff mobility in cooperation with Flanders Knowledge Area (FKA), the Flemish agency for the promotion of the international dimension in higher education.

    The aim of the round table is to present the findings of the BFUG, to organise a peer-learning activity on the basis of an international SWOT-analysis and to define the key success factors for staff mobility. Staff mobility is considered as the involvement of staff members in international cooperation in the field of education, research and also the world of work.

    Staff members involved in international cooperation in higher education institutions affiliated to EURASHE are invited to join the round table.

    The round table will close with conclusions and recommendations, that will be further developed and addressed by EURASHE’s working groups.
