Building Successful International Partnerships is a second, international edition of a training event that took place in October 2022. The 2022 event was attended by 30 participants from the Czech Republic, mostly academics who have coordinated a KA2 Cooperation Partnerships project, who have applied for one and almost succeeded, and / or who are in the process of preparing a new project application. There were also a couple of university project support staff members. During the two-day training the participants attended workshops on how to find partners from other HEIs and how to make the most of the synergies between the individual actions of Erasmus+ and other funding schemes (Anna Stina Sinisalo, University of Helsinki), how to successfully engage all important stakeholders in their project (Shane Lordan, University College Dublin), how to go about establishing a successful cooperation with private companies (Perry Hobson, Breda University of Applied Sciences), and how to employ virtual and co-creative methods for successful projects (Philipp Baur and Björn Nyström, Uppsala University).
Upon the completion of the training, the participants will have improved their ways of forming and managing an international project team, planning a project and writing a project application, finding further funding for after their current project will have run its course, gaining the interest of the relevant stakeholders and keeping them engaged, working with the lump sum model, and organizing project events.
