Universities in light of COVID-19 – Challenges and benefits

The Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes | University of Applied Sciences is pleased to invite you to its second international Virtual Staff Training Days (VSTD). This exclusive online event will be held on December 1st – 2nd, 2021, and it is designed for administrative and academic staff responsible for the international agenda.

As we all know, the corona pandemic has changed working, teaching and research at universities worldwide. That's why we have chosen this year’s Staff Training Days theme: Universities in light of COVID-19 – Challenges and benefits. We want to discuss challenges, benefits and opportunities related to universities in pandemic times, share experiences and best practices. A further purpose of our second Virtual Staff Training Days is to promote the idea of internationalisation (@ home) and strengthen our international partnership. In addition, the event represents a unique opportunity to learn remotely about the theme with colleagues from across the globe. 


Who can participate: Administrative and academic staff members from Higher Education Institutions across the globe, especially from our partner universities. 

Language: English

Costs: The event is free of charge. 

Program: Is being prepared. (Please note: We plan to hold the Virtual Staff Days in the morning CET)

Important note from the International Office: Virtual formats, including the VSTD 2021, are unfortunately not financially supported in the current ERASMUS program. To avoid misunderstandings, you should therefore pay attention to this in your planning.
