The further development of cooperation between the units of the University of Gdańsk and Romanian universities and the international exchange of students and researchers were the main topics of the meeting between the authorities of our university and the Romanian Ambassador, Cosmin Onisii.
Researchers from eight faculties (Faculty of Chemistry, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Philology, Faculty of History, Faculty of Oceanography and Geography, Faculty of Law and Administration and Faculty of Management) are collaborating with researchers from 11 universities in Romania, including Bucharest, Timisoara, Oradea, Cluj-Napoca and Brasov, as part of the Erasmus+ programme.
- International cooperation at our university is developing dynamically. Also with universities in Romania. Some of the projects carried out jointly by our scientists with researchers there are part of large international projects carried out with scientists from Finland and Italy, among others," emphasizes Vice-Rector for International Cooperation dr hab. Anna Jurkowska-Zeilder, prof. UG.
Within the framework of the Erasmus programme, last year six UG students went to Romanian universities (from the Faculty of Management, Faculty of Oceanography and Geography, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Philology - Inst. of Cultural Studies, Faculty of Chemistry), and eleven students from there came to our university. We recorded a similar number of trips to Romania among academic teachers and administrative staff.
The dynamic development of international cooperation at the University of Gdańsk, our position as a leader in the national Erasmus Programme, has resulted in the establishment of the University Internationalisation Commission at the Conference of Rectors of Polish Universities, which in 2023-24 will be chaired by the Vice-Rector, Professor Anna Jurkowska – Zeidler.
