International Erasmus+ Staff Week

The road to digitalization in Higher Education

Join us for this year’s Erasmus International Staff Week! 2 to 6 December 2024

Located in the Rhine-Main region, and known as the "The City of Science", Darmstadt is a great place to experience German culture and get to know colleagues from around the world.  

This year we have created an attractive programme from 2 to 6 December 2024 for you: The road to digitalization in Higher Education. We will emphasize not only the challenges that digitalization has proven to be for universities but also on the benefits of digital teaching and learning and the paths it opens up for dealing with societal changes and challenges. We will round it off with a cultural programme, tasty "Glühwein" and the opportunity to get to know our students.   

Programme at a Glance

During the Erasmus International Week, you will be able to experience life at h_da through the eyes of our students and staff by:
