ESDI - EStrategia De Internacionalización

Workshop 4, Valparaíso “Internationalization at home”


WS4 took place in Valparaíso from September 27th to October 1st 2014. Partners had an update session on the strategy roadmaps resulting from the previous workshop “Fund Raising, International Project Management & Industrial Networks”, aiming at connecting the matters of internationalization strategies with the subjects related to internal internationalization processes.

In this opportunity partners started the discussion over the “Internationalization Process Handbook” as part the outcomes of the project.

During the workshop, the DIES-ESDI consortium held various meetings where it was possible to share and compare what each univierity was doing up to that time in the relevant topics: “Internal workflow processes, Facts & Figures”, “Internal communication channels, Facts & Figures”, “Internationalization actors, centers and services”, and “Intercultural awareness and Capacity Building”









The project operational matters, ESDI-DIES partners discussed financial and communication issues.

As part of fundraising campaign #Help Valpo, led by PUCV to help the affected population of the April fires that devasted almost a third of Valparaíso’s hills, both Hoschschule Aalen and PUCV delivered a 4100 euro donation to the NGO “Junto al Barrio”. This donation will be invested in ameliorating a public space located in Cerro Ramaditas.








Finally, in the framework of WS4, PUCV and Aalen University were able to renew their institutional agreement.
