Welcome Centers and International Offices at German Universities and Research Centers benefit from a huge European network: EURAXESS Germany not only provides information and assistance to mobile researches, it also supports us with latest information about integration issues and the possibility to get to know colleagues in other European countries.
Recently, the TU Dresden Welcome Center staff applied for a Study Visit in Scandinavia and was able to meet various people from the universities of Aarhus, Lund and Oslo to exchange ideas about integration, housing, alumni, dual career services, talent transfer, marketing, and so on.
We also got the chance to visit the International Citizen Service (ICS) in Aarhus, Denmark. As a so-called “one-stop shop” the ICS combines local authorities, the tax office, the “Work in Denmark” institution and the international community. It was very impressing to us.
Campus tours, sessions and presentations gave us broad insights into Welcome Services in the Northern European countries. We appreciated this opportunity a lot and hope to be able to welcome colleagues from Europe once at TU Dresden campus.
