About the event

Idea in a nutshell:.

FARIA seeks to establish a mobility consortium consisting of Finnish higher education institutions and key universities in FARIA focus states to support these new frameworks with a concrete mechanism that contributes to the envisioned deepening of relationships. Focus will be on predominantly short-term mobility (1-3 weeks) of academics, university staff, selected company representatives and doctoral students under the umbrella theme of “Transformative SDG Innovation”.

We propose to organize a one-week training/teaching period in Finland for U.S.-colleagues once per year, which serves as anchor event and will be partly hosted in Helsinki, and partly at participating member universities. This training week serves as mutual platform for connecting our stakeholders in Finland and U.S. around the SDGs, while showcasing joint and individual strengths.

Individual short term mobilities that can be pursued throughout the year to deepen the emerging SDG-centered relations will complement the training week concept.

Funding for mobility activities will be applied for via ERASMUS+ (EU funding instrument for inbound and outbound mobility).
