To give you a chance to meet colleagues working in the same discipline as you from the other FORTHEM universities, we are proposing a "FORTHEM Speed Dating" event on Monday, March 29th from 3-5pm CET / 4-6 pm EET, in the field of history and philosophy. This online event will help you to better understand the opportunities offered to you by FORTHEM and to meet potential partners you could work with.

FORTHEM invites all university members to get involved in the Alliance. We encourage all teachers and researchers to get in touch with each other and to start an activity that could finally lead to our shared goals within FORTHEM:

*Adding an international component to your classes by collaborating with groups in the other universities

*Detecting possible areas for research collaboration

*Developing shared tutored projects with colleagues for alliance students

*Setting up guest lectureships within the FORTHEM network (Erasmus+ funding)

*Organising and participating in joint staff weeks

*Developing joint e-learning courses for our FORTHEM Digital Academy

*Developing ideas for future joint degree programmes

*Developing joint Horizon 2020 projects


The "FORTHEM Speed Dating" event will take place online.

In order to access our FORTHEM Speed Dating webpage with more information about the event, access the event itself, and find proposals and bio-notes from colleagues looking to collaborate in the areas of research or teaching, you are asked to fill in this form. The link to the webpage will be send to the e-mail address you provided in the form.

If you wish you may also share a short bio-note which will then be posted on the webpage. This way other colleagues will be able to identify the potential collaboration partners.
