The contact seminar targets individuals who work with internationalisation or university teachers with an interest in creating or strengthening collaboration between Ukraine and Sweden. Due to the covid-19 pandemic this event has been postponed until further notice.

About the seminar

The seminar is jointly organised by the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) and the National Erasmus+ Office in Ukraine (NEO).

The focus of the seminar will be on the international dimension of the Erasmus+ programme (Capacity Building in Higher Education, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees and International Credit mobility) as well as the Linnaeus-Palme programme (advanced planning visits and partnerships).

During the seminar, you will find out more about the different funding opportunities and receive an introduction to the education systems of both countries.

Much time will be devoted to networking in order to facilitate discussions on future meetings and collaborations.

Target group

University teachers or those who work in another capacity with internationalisation at their higher education institution.

When and where?

The seminar will take place in Ukraine.


Participants are expected to cover their own costs for travel and accommodation.
