Staff Week September 2021

Staff Week: From Cotutelles to Joint Programmes – Challenges and Opportunities

Venue: The University of Bremen, Germany, blended concept with 30 participants on site and digital access for 50 participants

Date: September 21 - 23, 2021

Welcome to the Staff Week „From Cotutelles to Joint Programmes – Challenges and Opportunities“! The Staff Week is organized by the University of Bremen as part of the Erasmus+ project “Joint Programmes at Doctorate Level in a European university network: Linking Education and Research towards the European Education Area” (Link EDU-RES).

The aim of this event is to bring together and connect deans, early stage and senior researchers, administrative staff, and other university members involved with or interested in the administration and initiation of joint programmes at the doctoral level. We would like to create an opportunity to discuss the vision behind joint programmes and opportunities both for institutions and for individuals. We will also consider the legal and institutional framework relevant to establishing various forms of international collaboration, from cotutelles to international graduate programmes and joint degrees. Steps and stops on the way to joint doctoral education as well as insights into the reality of doctoral research in more than one institution will be in the focus of our discussions.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Staff Week will take place in a blended format. 30 spots for on-site participants are available on the campus of the University of Bremen, Germany for members of the project and 50 more participants can engage virtually. If you attend the virtual event, we will appreciate your commitment to all digital parts in order to ensure the collegial spirit of togetherness intended by a Staff Week. Thank you very much for your understanding.
