Mobility & Training

Mobility & Training within YUFE is an essential part of the Staff Journey, for both academic and non-academic staff. It opens up the whole YUFE European campus to any staff member, regardless of their current position and experience level. Through intense staff interaction, our Alliance stimulates collaboration and mutual learning among the universities and their local/national ecosystems. Short staff visits and long-term affiliations will be instrumental in developing the integration that is needed to one day achieve the vision of one YUFE European University with ten branches across Europe.

YUFE Staff Programme

The YUFE Staff Programme offers mobility and training opportunities for staff members of all universities within the YUFE Alliance.

Training sessions may consist of teaching activities (for academic staff) or training activities such as job shadowing, professional development courses and specific competence-building trainings for all staff groups.

The activities should fit to individual staff development needs at all career levels and facilitate:

  • building and fostering a professional and personal network within the YUFE Alliance and beyond
  • improvement of transferable and practicable skills relevant for current activities and professional career development
  • exchange of experience and good practice among YUFE partners
  • familiarity with working in a different national context in terms of culture, rules and regulations

Vision and Strategy

Staff Development Policy

The main goal of staff development within the YUFE Alliance is to implement Charter and Code, to create a productive and inspiring work environment for all staff members, and to realise the vision of a European University. The Alliance strives to support and develop all staff members with regard to their knowledge, skills and talents and to empower all staff to build the YUFE university. In its Staff Development Policy, the YUFE partners identified shared views, challenges, and basic principles, both at the university and the YUFE level.

Diversity and Inclusivity Strategy

YUFE aims to become the reference model for a human-centered, open and inclusive European University that can strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and cohesion by closing the social gap. All partners commit to embrace the principles of diversity and inclusion. The YUFE Diversity and Inclusivity Strategy expresses the vision of YUFE partner institutions that is at the core of our identity. It is ambitious and challenging and requires all YUFE institutions to be open to change.  The strategy will be complemented by an action plan in due course.
