Call for CEENQA Staff Exchange 2021

CEENQA is launching a new call to member agencies to participate in the staff exchange scheme in 2021. Given the ongoing pandemic and uncertain outlook to the future with respect to international travel, the 2021 staff exchange is foreseen to take place fully online. The recommended activities to pursue include: online meetings, focus groups, presentations, job shadowing, etc. Observation of online site visits and of online training of experts is strongly recommended.
Agencies planning to host and/or send staff members for fully virtual staff exchange in 2021 are asked to reply to this call by 10 January, 2021. After collecting the responses from interested agencies, CEENQA will match mutually suitable agencies and put them in touch with each other to organize the details of staff exchange.
The responses to this call and any requests for more information should be sent to Dr Olgun Cicek, Board Member (olguncicek@yahoo.com) by 10 January, 2021. Mark your calendars now!
