Staff Training

Staff Training Programmes

The Utrecht Network has a demonstrable history of providing Staff Training Programmes for staff within its member institutions.

The aim of the Staff Training Programmes is to encourage the internationalisation of staff at all levels, and in all fields, in its member institutions. It is hoped that the sharing of experiences and knowledge will result in strengthening links between colleagues in member institutions.

Past Utrecht Network Staff Training programmes have included programmes for Library staff, Admissions staff, Research Managers, staff involved in facilitating researcher mobility and staff involved in Joint Programmes.
