The closing conference of the Scholarship and Training Fund (implemented in 2008-2011) took place on 28 March 2011. Seven of the IROs Forum member universities were represented at the event.
The conference programme included a summary of the activities carried out under the Fund so far, and the plans for the next stage of the STF.
The participants were provided information about the basic aims and objectives of the programme’s actions, and descriptions of different projects carried out under STF or scheduled for the future. The main topics discussed during the closing conference included the content of the projects, a summary of the awarded grants, partner projects, areas supported by the Fund, and target groups.
The conference was primarily focused on the programme objectives, however some time was also devoted to the promotion of the next Fund edition. An important element of the conference were the discussions among the participants, which will no doubt contribute to an even better work organization during the continuation of the programme that we all look forward to.
