University of Vigo staff members, Roman Lago and Javier Rial, took advantage of the celebration of University International Week; “Internationalization and Sports – New Perspectives for Universities”, 03-07 June, with colleagues from Freie Universitat Berlin. It was an ideal opportunity to present ENAS to several new Universities and meet colleagues from Turkey, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and many more.
The International Office and University Sport Service of Freie Universität Berlin hosted the 3rd International Week with the topic “Internationalization and Sports – New Perspectives for Universities“. The University welcomed about 40 ERASMUS administrative staff colleagues from the fields of International Relations and University Sports from all over Europe at the beautiful University Campus in Dahlem. Guided by the topic and several presentations, the participants discussed in workshops how to improve cooperation between International Offices, University Sports Units and other institutions in between the University system to create a better environment to integrate students from abroad on site.
Additionally, the participants had opportunities of guided tours through Botanic Gardens, the Spree River and other touristic views within the German Capital. They were also invited to try some water sports in the beautiful water sport base of the University Sport Service. The week ended with a walk within the beautiful Carnival of Cultures, which gives an idea of the wide intercultural scene in Berlin itself.
