Welcome to the conference: Blended Erasmus+ for Higher Education professional - a leap into the future.

Join us for an exciting conference in Brussels to learn more about Blended Erasmus+ Staff Training, a new and innovative approach to maximise flexibility and learning outcomes for your staff members, allowing them to grow professionally and create networking opportunities for your institution.

The conference concludes a 2 year pilot project co-funded under Erasmus+ that has tested different approaches to blended mobility for Higher Education professionals. 

Throughout the 1-day programme you will learn more about how to utilise the platform that allows your institution to promote a blended mobility and provide the dedicated virtual content to your participants.

Have you attended a staff training week in the past and believe there is room to improve the learning outcome?
Do you feel the quality of staff exchanges is difficult to measure?
Or are you simply interested on how technological and pedagogical innovation is changing the Erasmus programme and internationalisation at large?

Then this conference is for you!

The European University Foundation and its member universities look forward to meeting you on the 24 October 2018 at the EESC in Brussels.

There is no registration fee and lunch & coffee will be provided.
