Kaunas University of Technology kindly invites colleagues from partner universities worldwide to its “Global Faculty Week 2024,” which will be held on 22-26 April 2024. The event aims to integrate international and intercultural dimensions into the curriculum, strengthen the idea of internationalization at home, and maintain and develop international cooperation. The event is open to academic staff in engineering, technology, physical science, social sciences, and humanities.

The event will be held in a hybrid format. Colleagues who cannot come to Kaunas for a physical visit are welcome to choose the possibility of virtual teaching.

This year, we are also happy to invite administrative staff to our event and join us on the relevant topic “Burnout at the workplace”. You can join us in the workshops and lectures on this topic.

In addition, we will prepare a week-long social programme with cultural presentations, networking events and workshops that will allow the opportunity to gain new knowledge, start discussions and networking, and help strengthen the existing and create new partnerships with colleagues worldwide.

The application deadline is 15 February 2024. But we strongly encourage you to apply much in advance so we have enough time to contact the faculties and find you a hosting programme. The participants selected for the training week will also be announced after 15 February. Also, please note that we have a very limited amount of places for this part of the staff week.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at incoming@ktu.lt or visit our website for more information about the event and registration.
