Developing resources for international academics

The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) hosted a hybrid meeting of the UniWeliS project partners in its Warsaw headquarters on 7–8 April 2022. The partners presented the best from among 80 good practices in supporting academic staff’s mobility that had been gathered in the course of the project. Moreover, the project partners have developped a training manual for management staff at higher education and research institutions and the next step is to develop a model training in supporting the mobility of doctoral candidates and scientists. ACA has recently published the report Attracting and supporting global talent in Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe as part of this project.

Since its foundation, NAWA has offered programmes that support the mobility of scientists, but also increase the universities’ potential to host foreigners. Thanks to UniWeliS, their activities can be enhanced with the use of good practices and modular trainings in hosting foreign scientists that are developed under the project. Other partners in the EU funded Erasmus+ project are: the Slovak Academic Information Agency (Slovakia) – the project coordinator, the Academic Cooperation Association (Belgium), Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski (Bulgaria), Comenius University (Slovakia), and the University of Niš (Serbia).

ACA shares the belief that distributing knowledge in the form of good practices, as well as model trainings, is a key instrument to neutralise the existing barriers in scientists’ mobility.
