ERASMUS+ Staff Training Week 2019
Let´s care about us: Creating an Environment for the Perfect Study-Work-Life Fit

Future challenges of universities

Digitalization, virtual realities, modern workspaces, continuous learning – our universities face many challenges in the future. Thus, new hardware, innovative software, IT-infrastructure and processes are becoming core elements in strategies to develop and keep up with other universities and competitors.

Put the goals into practice

However, all these challenges can only be tackled if our universities can rely on motivated, open-minded people who are willing to put these ambitious goals into practice.

So - how do we keep motivation high? How do we keep employees healthy and satisfied? What do universities have to do to be a competitive and attractive employer? These are some of the questions we want to discuss during our international week in November.

We invite you to share your experiences and visions with us about creating a healthy, inspiring and open-minded workplace that is ready to cope with future challenges.

Let's spend the week exploring topics such as:

  • ­Architecture of ideal learning and working environments
  • Learning and development / life-long learning
  • Well-being
  • ­Life milestones
  • ­Family care issues­
  • ­Work-life initiatives
  • ­Sustainability

­and getting to know each other, spending time at the lovely Saarbrücken Christmas market and enjoying other social activities.
