For who? 

The staff week is dedicated to technical and support staff who wish to improve their international and intercultural skills in order to be better prepared for communicating with international students, researchers and staff in their daily work. Both junior and senior staff are welcome. We strongly encourage the participation of colleagues who don’t usually get the chance to reflect on or train in aspects of internationalization in their daily activities.


Employees who will be selected to participate in the training will receive funding from Gdańsk Tech for mobility under the Erasmus+ program. In total, it will amount to EUR 1,075 (EUR 800 for individual support and EUR 275 for a return trip). Receiving a grant will require you to go through the Erasmus+ mobility procedure. Employees who use green means of transport will be able to count on additional funding for their trip (more information about it can be found here).

How to apply?

Employees interested in participating in the training have until September 10 to send their application. An application containing name/surname/position/unit/ and information whether the employee has previously benefited from trips to training/language courses under the Erasmus+ program should be sent to the e-mail address justyna.sudakowska@pg.edu.pl. E-mails confirming participation in the training will be sent to participants by September 12. Employees will be selected by lot. Gdańsk University of Technology may "nominate" up to 3 employees to participate in the training.
