During the week-long group visit, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the EU policy on international education, the European Education Area and current strategies, and to delve deeper into the functioning of the Erasmus+ programme. The aim of the group visit is to give participants the opportunity to better understand the European organisations and the EU institutions and their activities in the field of international education, to introduce them to how the project offices at Belgian universities operate and to help Czech institutions to find suitable foreign partners for future cooperation.  

The group visit will consist of thematic meetings with staff of the EU institutions, representatives of universities and university networks based in Brussels, experts from the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU, representatives of Belgian universities and other Brussels stakeholders. Throughout the visit, participants will be accompanied by the CZELO office staff. The final programme of the visit will be also determined depending on the profiles of the selected participants and the current situation.  

The visit will take place between 19 and 23 June and applications are open until 31 March inclusive. Candidates selection will be based on their motivation letters, which are included in the registration form. A total of 5 places are available, ideally, each place should be covered by a different institution. Applicants will be notified of the results no later than 14 April 2023.  

Participation in the group visit is free of charge, travel and accommodation costs are to be covered by the sending institution/participant. The cost of the visit cannot be funded by Erasmus+ grants.
