3rd Erasmus+ International Staff Week 2018

After two successful years, we are proud to announce that the 3rd Erasmus+ International Staff Week at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic, organized by the International Relations Office, will take place 18th - 22nd June 2018 in our lovely university city. It is the ideal week to boost your knowledge on internationalisation issues and to network with partners from around the world. 

The main themes of the 3rd E+ISW UP 2018 are:

  • Erasmus+ programme
  • Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility
  • Internationalization
  • International Relations Management
  • Summer Schools

There is a limited capacity of 25 people and we will try to ensure the most diverse group from different countries. Thus we will not accept more than 2 people from the same institution.

In the previous years, we had the chance to meet with colleagues from Izrael, Poland, Croatia, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Brazil, Germany and many other. We discussed important topics during workshops and meetings and shared useful practices from our universities. In the afternoons, we enjoyed cultural programme. We showed our guests Olomouc and Kroměříž and its beauties and established personal and professional relationships from which we benefit until today. See the photo galleries bellow, the photos speak for themselves.

Welcome to Olomouc

Olomouc (pronounced ollo-moats) has it all, including UNESCO-protected architecture, great museums and energetic, student-oriented nightlife. It (or as the Czechs say: she) had always been among the most important cities of the Kingdom of Bohemia. With its convenient location, ancient university and spiritual, cultural and craft traditions, Olomouc has been for centuries a natural centre of Moravia, attractive to artists, intellectuals and businessmen.

The tourist guide Lonely planet ranges Olomouc among the best-kept secrets in Europe. 

Established in 1573, Palacký University Olomouc is the oldest university in Moravia and the second-oldest in the Czech Republic. It is a modern institution providing high quality teaching combined with research and supported by state of the art facilities – libraries, computer facilities, laboratories, etc. With 8 faculties, the university covers fields from health sciences and medicine through modern and classical languages, philosophy, teacher training, sciences, law, and theology. Palacký University has about 23.000 students and over 1800 members of teaching staff, which is the highest density of university students in Central Europe and it makes Olomouc a truly university city.
