USMB international Highlights

International events

International week – October 2017

The Université Savoie Mont Blanc organized this autumn its third international week, an event dedicated to international mobility and cooperation projects with foreign partners, this year under the sign of the 30 years of the Erasmus + program. Different types of events were organized on the three campuses of the USMB: conferences on international mobility opportunities for students, workshops for staff wishing to develop existing or create new networks of collaborations, a mobility fair allowing the various actors to meet and exchange and festive moments and conviviality. 67 partners representing 47 institutions from 28 countries with which the USMB and its units have links, have travelled for three beautiful days of meetings or for the entire week. In addition to meetings with the students on the stands, the partners had the opportunity to discover each campus to better understand the organization and operation of the institution, its training units and its laboratories.

“I really enjoyed my time in Savoie, it’s a wonderful area. I was very impressed with the facilities on both campuses. It was good to speak with existing Erasmus students & learn from their experiences. I hope to start sending our students to USMB in the near future. It looks like we may expand our incoming/outgoing numbers in the future. Overall you delivered a very professional event & I wish you all continued success & thank you for inviting me.”
“I had a wonderful week! Visiting your university, meeting your « dream team » and the participating colleagues from around the world made this international week a fantastic experience. Thank you to everybody involved! I will definitely recommend your university to our students!!”
