Blended Staff Training is an innovative new approach, combining e-learning with a traditional staff training. The aim of the Staff Training Week is to introduce participants with essential competences university’s administrative worker shall obtain and improve for successful completion of daily work.

The “Skills and Competencies for Future" Training is composed of one online meeting on April 28, 2022 and a 5-day on-site event that will take place in the beautiful city of Riga, the largest of the three Baltic capitals, from the May 8 till May 12, 2023 .
