Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) is disseminating a call for papers from the international academic community for the final conference of the SUCTIA project, ‘Academics for Internationalisation’. AMU, the coordinator of this Erasmus+ project, will host the event on 2-3 June 2022 in Poznań (Poland).

The SUCTIA project

The aim of the SUCTIA project, funded by Erasmus+, is to raise awareness and change the internal culture of institutions towards internationalisation, thus creating a systemic change in institutions and in European higher education.

SUCTI Academia (SUCTIA) is built on SUCTI, a project coordinated by Rovira i Virgili University from 2016 to 2019 under the same European Commission programme. SUCTI focused on the internationalisation of administrative staff.

SUCTIA now aims to enhance the third pillar, the academic staff, by providing them with knowledge and skills related to the internationalisation process of their universities.
