A successful integration of international academics is a key element in building truly international higher education institutions. High-quality assistance provided to incoming PhD students and academics at different stages is crucial for reaping the full benefit of mobility and for increasing the universities’ chances of attracting and retaining talents.
The UniWeliS project will create practical tools to facilitate the development of welcome services and professional capacities to support mid-term and long-term mobility of international PhD students and academics in the Central-Eastern and South-Eastern European (CESE) region. The partners will deploy synergies with the existing support services provided at institutional, local or national level (e.g. EURAXESS network, Migration information centres).
