Freie Universität Berlin is ranked among the best universities worldwide (currently ranked 104th Worldwide for Times and 130th Worldwide for QS) and part of the eleven “Universities of Excellence” in Germany. Founded in 1948, this dynamic and internationally oriented institution today hosts around 33,000 students in 178 degree programs.
Spotlights of the “Internationalization: New Networks – New Responsibilities” Staff Training Week:
Mr. Abrignani also joined a Erasmus Staff Training counting 150 participants, making AGU the only Turkish institution represented. The week was organized into networking sessions, discussions on the integration of refugees, academic freedom, Study-abroad opportunities, research strategies and centers, as well as Digitalization.
The Key Note speech was given by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, who spoke about Global Refugee Protection.
The Training was the perfect opportunity to make new connections and expand AGU’s international network for future collaboration and partnership opportunities, as well as to exchange good practices to improve institutions’ systems, services and performances.
