Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is organizing a five-day staff week on “European perspectives on leadership in higher education” in Mainz from 12th to 16th September 2022. Participants will be offered space and input for exchange about good leadership at universities in the FORTHEM Alliance for executive staff and personnel development staff (HRD).


These questions will guide the FORTHEM staff week with input and discussion sessions, exchange formats, peer consultation, job shadowing and methodical workshops:

  • - Is there a European perspective on leadership in higher education?
  • - What do universities expect from their executive staff and from their personnel development programs?
  • - How can HRD support good leadership?

During the workshop, participants will strengthen their leadership skills, methodological competencies and develop a mutual understanding of leadership in higher education. Further information as well as the staff week’s agenda can be found in the flyer and via this website. Registration is open until 22nd July 2022 via this link.

Travel expenses can be covered by Erasmus+ Staff training upon funding application at your home institution. Confirmations to registered participants will be sent by the end of July.
