On November 27-28, 2017, SUCTI Partners met in Barcelona
SUCTI Partners held its last meeting in Barcelona on November 27-28 at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). In this meeting we had a look at the European Report on Systemic University Change Towards Internationalisation, we discussed the materials for the upcoming Train the Trainers to be held in April in Poznan and we made sure that the project is advancing at the right pace and in the right direction. It was a joy to see each other again and confirm that the SUCTI project is doing very well. Thank you, SUCTI partners for your commitment and hard work!
The SUCTI project is present at International Conferences
The SUCTI project will be showcased at a session during the upcoming NAFSA Conference, due to take place May 27-June 1st in Philadelphia, USA.
It will also be presented at the Open Conference of the WELCOME Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project, due to take place in Shanghai on December 9-10, 2017.
This past month of September, SUCTI was also presented at two sessions during the Conference of the European Association for International Education (EAIE), that took place in Seville, in September 12-15, 2017.

The SUCTI project was presented in two sessions at the EAIE Conference in Seville this past September, 2017. The two sessions were:
- Creating unity on campus: professional development for university administrators
- Internationalisation’s hidden force: administrative staff as agents of change
As the EAIE Conference was well attended by most project partners, a partner meeting took place on that occasion as well.
European Consultation Seminar (Brescia, April 2017)
In order to collect more quantitative and qualitative data and for further discussing the results of the national analysis, partners invited both national and European stakeholders to join this seminar and clarify the findings of the national survey and to consolidate recommendations for further improvements.
Open Seminars for staff of other HEI in the partner countries
The SUCTI Open Seminars are a shorter version of the SUCTI in-house training condensed in just one day (6 hours) including most of the contents of the in-house training except for the content related to the university per se nor the presentation of their personal ideas for contributing, which would not be applicable as participants will attend from different institutions.
Each partner country will organise this multiplier event in order to ensure the regional and national dimension of the project. Higher Education institutions (public and private) will be invited to join and participate in this seminar. It will be organised as a one day seminar led by the partner institution of each country and staff from other higher education institutions will be invited.
Date: October 2018 (TBC)
Best practices conference
This event aims at exchanging good practices received and evaluated by the network of training experts in internationalisation. A one day event will be organised by the University of Porto in order to share these experiences and motivate other higher education institutions to integrate SUCTI in their in-house training activities.
Date: March 2019 (TBC)
This last event aims at sharing all the results of the project, products, publications, online platform, training materials and invite other higher education institutions to join the SUCTI community as well as to implement its innovative practices.
