The FRIENDS Project 5th Partner meeting in Poland was a success. The consortium of HEIs from across the globe led by Bulgaria’s VUM shared great sustainability efforts toward intercultural awareness that benefit stakeholders.
Amidst the pandemic that served as the foreground of the playing field of the Erasmus+ FRIENDS Project for a significant part of its timeline, the university partners’ spirits were not dampened. High spirits continue to soar, forge ahead, rally on their accomplishments along Internationalization at Home and scramble to create a sustainability plan to achieve an excellent performance mark for this Erasmus+ capacity building for HEI project.
Yet as the adage goes, all work and no play make us dull hence at the end of the 5th Partners’ Meeting at the lovely Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland (4 July – 7 July 2022), Polish cultural sites were visited by the participants. The walking tour in Krakow, Poland, with all the sights to behold, is a memory to live on. The partners are now looking forward to holding the international conference in Bhutan this October.
