Overseas Mission 2013
7th November 2013
HEURO will be holding its 2013 Overseas Mission in Helsinki, Finland on Thursday, 7th and Friday, 8th November 2013.
The purpose of the study visit is to bring together Finnish and UK professionals working with Erasmus, student exchange and other European mobility programmes to discuss current issues and exchange best practice.
Locating the study visit in Helsinki allows colleagues a valuable opportunity to explore the Finnish perspective on European mobility and international partnerships.
Hosted by CIMO, the Finnish National Agency, the workshop has been designed to inform and develop colleagues’ knowledge of a broad range of relevant European education issues as they affect Finland. There will be a range of presentations and opportunities for discussion with colleagues from CIMO as well as other Finnish Educational Institutions.
The workshop would be ideal for members of staff who are new to or experienced in European mobility and who would like the opportunity to engage with colleagues from around Finland.
The British Council has confirmed that this workshop, although only of two days duration, is eligible for Staff Training Mobility funding.
Accommodation is available on Thursday, 7th November at the Hotel Cumulus Hakaniemi which is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from CIMO and next to the airport bus stop. Rooms cost €131 (double) or €111 (single) including buffet breakfast and use of the common sauna. Rooms are being held at this special rate until 21st October and participants are advised to make their reservation as soon as possible direct with the hotel using the code ‘HEURO’.
