International Cooperation

From 4 to 8 November, Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) will host the annual Internationalisation Conference and Erasmus+ Staff Week. The events are organised by the International Department (ID) at RSU.


This year’s event will be dedicated to the theme of inclusive internationalisation. 

Having international experience has been linked to gaining various personal and professional advantages: personal growth and development, enhanced career opportunities, broadened networks, strengthened knowledge and skills, intercultural awareness and others. There are nowadays multiple opportunities for university stakeholders to acquire international experience. Although the number of individuals who have access to these opportunities continues to increase, many others still encounter financial, personal, or professional obstacles, or do not have access to adequate information. The goal of this event will be to identify ways in which more diverse groups of interested parties can benefit from various internationalisation initiatives.

Internationalisation experts from various European institutions of higher education will speak at the opening plenary of the conference: Gülsün Sağlamer, President of the European Women Rectors Association (Turkey), Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen, former Danish Minister for Culture and Rector, Kolding School of Design (Denmark), and Luciano Saso, Vice-Rector of European University Networks of Sapienza University of Rome and President of the UNICA network of the Universities from the Capitals of Europe (Italy).

In conjunction with the conference, RSU will also host Erasmus+ Staff Week featuring several events: an interactive workshop, a partnership fair, university presentations, networking activities and a cultural programme.

As in previous years, Erasmus+ Staff Week serves as a platform for networking and initiating further international cooperation. These contacts are essential for developing joint study programmes, strategic partnerships, and education and research networks, as well as initiating other internationalisation-related activities. Our colleagues from various departments and faculties at RSU are especially welcome to participate in these events to contribute to achieving our university’s goals for internationalisation.

Director of the RSU International Department

The conference will gather participants from various countries representing universities and other institutions engaged into the internationalisation of higher education.

Rregistration open until 1 november
