Invitation to International Staff Week, FH JOANNEUM, 8.-12.5.2023

Dear partner,

we are very happy to invite you to our next International Staff Week at FH JOANNEUM, Austria which will take place from May 8th – 12th, 2023.

The topic of the International Week will be “Tackling the grand challenges from a multidisciplinary perspective”. The ecological crisis, new technologies, political instability, changes in society, etc. are problems that need to be addressed with collaborative effort in an interdisciplinary approach.

During the week our global challenges will be identified and addressed in different workshops. In addition to that we will take a look at our role as higher education institutions and discuss how we as universities can react to these problems.

Of course we will also be very eager to hear more of your experiences and are happy about best-practice examples from your institutions.

We will put together a diverse program of presentations, group discussions and fun cultural and social activities for you. You will not only get to know FH JOANNEUM in Graz but also our campus in Bad Gleichenberg. You will be expected to present your home institution at our International Fair, where you will also have the chance to meet our students and staff.

Our staff week is directed at staff from all parts of your university who are interested in discussing how our universities can help tackle the grand challenges of our time.

The international staff week is a good chance for colleagues who would like to visit us in the frame of an Erasmus+ Staff Exchange.

Registration will be open from now on until March 1st,2023 under this link:
