The University of Kragujevac was the first HEI in Serbia that organized Erasmus+ International Staff Week in May 2018. Pursuing its goal of strengthening internationalization policies and raising its visibility, the University of Kragujevac organized the 2nd Erasmus+ International Week from May 20 -24, 2019.
The topic of this International Staff Week was “Serbia - partner vs. program country” reflecting the new status of Serbia in Erasmus+ program, as well as the new opportunities and challenges that the change of status will bring along. The guests from the partner countries shared with the colleagues from Serbia their thoughts, experiences and best practice in intercultural competence, personal skills development and student mobility. The participants were also invited to attend the celebration of the University of Kragujevac Patron Saint’s day and to get introduced to the activities carried out at the University.
During the five-day program, the participants attended various workshops and presentations, but also had an opportunity to be introduced to the cultural and historical heritage of Šumadija Region, Serbian history, culture and tradition, as well as the Serbian language through various lectures and sightseeing tours.
The organization of the 2nd Erasmus+ International Week once again confirmed the dedication of the University of Kragujevac to the process of internationalization, as well as the commitment to the overall improvement of its international capacities allowing its students and staff to gain knowledge, skills and competences that will raise their competitiveness not only at national level, but also at European and global labor market.
