At the beginning of October 2021, University of Pardubice hosted the IX International Conference “Intercultural and Transcultural Dimensions in Linguistic, Cultural and Historical Context”, which was joined by the representatives of Kryvyi Rih State Pedagogical University, participating in Erasmus+ program.


In 2020 University of Pardubice and Kryvyi Rih State Pedagogical University signed an agreement on cooperation which continues under the program Erasmus+ KA1: Academic mobility.

This program is aimed not only at students majoring in “German Language and Literature”, but also at lecturers of Department of the German Language and Literature and Methods of Teaching (Faculty of Foreign Languages). It provides four mobilities for higher educational students for 5 semesters and two mobilities for 10 days, which are aimed at lecturers.

From October 3 to October 12, the following lecturers of KSPU were invited to University of Pardubice: Vice Rector for Research, Doctor of Pedagogical Sciences, Professor V.A. Hamanyuk, Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Associate Professor V.A. Karpiuk and Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Senior Lecturer at Department of History I.A. Selyshcheva.

The main purpose of this trip was the participation of KSPU representatives in the international conference, acquaintance with the structure of educational programs, curricula, as well as the organization of the educational process in one of the leading Czech universities.

Within the framework of academic mobility, our lecturers are provided not only with attending classes, but also holding some lectures and presentations.

V.A. Hamanyuk told the press-center (translated): “The Erasmus+ KA1 agreement, which requires prior experience of cooperation between universities, is the result of four-year cooperation that began in 2017. We had applied for the conference in Pardubice in winter, and within this program we were invited to join its participants. During these days we presented our reports and listened to other speakers. After the conference we also had time to visit various excursions, visit museums, a wooden church and a medieval fortress”.

We wish all our scientists and students to get a useful experience of international cooperation!
