Kaunas University of Technology is a leading Lithuanian university providing a wide range of studies of engineering, technological, physical and social sciences, humanities and arts as well as closely cooperating with business. The University’s research groups contribute to the global scientific knowledge by conducting cutting-edge interdisciplinary research.

KTU kindly invites colleagues from partner universities worldwide to its 2nd “Global Faculty Week 2020” to be held on 19-23 October 2020.

The event is open for academic staff willing to give lectures, share experiences with our professors, find areas of cooperation and mutual interests. We believe that a comprehensive program of the event will give the opportunity to gain new knowledge, start discussions and networking as well as help strengthen the existing and create new partnerships with colleagues from all over the world.

The list of  study areas for lectures/workshops to be held by guest lecturers will be announced shortly.

Kindly note that participants coming with the Erasmus+ funding are required to prepare lectures of at least 8 teaching hours. Participants using other sources of financing shall agree on the workload individually with the receiving departments.

We will fully support you in applying for funding under the Erasmus+ Programme at your home university. Therefore, please let us know if you need any documents or confirmation from our side.
