Draft program and objectives

This week gives us the opportunity and the time to further develop the ideas we already discussed in Karlsruhe and Lisbon (and before) and to share experiences and best practice in international cooperation and student and staff mobility. We will use the time to get to know each other better, select the most forward-looking ideas and projects and to define the milestones for our projects in order to get things running. To sum up: Deepening cooperation- gaining impact!

On Saturday, 29 June, KIT will open its doors for around 25.000 people. We can together use this event to present the CLUSTER Network as an inspiring and forward oriented group of universities and to enjoy a wonderful day full of ideas, impressions, and personal contacts and fun.
