The ID2019 will build bridges between higher education and the professional field. It will offer a multidisciplinary platform, looking at inspiring perspectives, policies and practices from all over the globe.

Our guests will combine the programme organised by the department of their specific field of study with with social and networking activities offered to all our guests.

  • The field specific programmes consist of sessions, lectures or workshops by our international guests. Sessions will be open to our students, colleagues and representatives from the professional field. Lessons and presentations can be about the overall theme, but also about the specific expertise of our guests. Guests are also asked to present their institutions and countries to our students. Classes can be taught in English, French or German.
  • During social and networking activities guests and Thomas More colleagues of various fields will be meeting. There will be many networking possibilities!

We expect the participants to cover travel, accommodation and other expenses. Participation can qualify as an ERASMUS+ teacher/staff mobility or other mobility.

We expect more than 150 guests and warmly welcome all the old friends and new acquaintances!
