Erasmus on the Horizon

International Staff Training Week @Ghent University

Erasmus on the Horizon

Through its Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020 programmes, the EU supports international exchanges for students, academic staff and researchers, as well as structured cooperation between higher education institutions, other stakeholders and public authorities in different countries.
Although there are differences between both programmes, there are synergies as well.

The International Staff week was geared towards colleagues supporting, advising or managing Horizon 2020 or Erasmus+ projects in a university setting at a centralized level. During the staff week we looked into different aspects of EU-project support at universities and offered an opportunity for networking and sharing best practices. Ghent University welcomed 28 colleagues from all over Europe.




Various topics were discussed:

  • Different approaches for project support services and the different organizational structures
  • Digitisation
  • Challenges for project implementation & project planning
  • Incentive policy, stimulating SSH researchers
  • QA processes
  • Training opportunities
  • Lobbying
  • Synergies between research & education
