In March 2022 MENDELU has organized International Week for both academics and non-academic staff. The event was named Weeks of International Teaching – Inclusive and Digital. After a long time, this event was face to face and twenty-nine participants from Poland, Jordan, Slovakia, Croatia, Thailand, Greece, Luxembourg, Latvia, Ukraine, Romania, Turkey, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom, Nepal, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Austria and Israel came to Brno. A rich program full of workshops with experts, networking, trip to the chateau Lednice or a visit to Villa Tugendhat was prepared. Our international students and ESN MENDELU Brno helped to prepare an International Market where participants could taste a lot of traditional food, drinks, enjoy music and dance.

Brno is one of the friendliest cities with excellent accessibility. The city of Brno puts Europe easily within reach but also boasts many attractions of its own. There is an International Airport just 20 minutes from the city centre and other major airports are very close (Prague – 200 km, Vienna – 120 km, Bratislava – 120 km).

The Czech Republic has developed an advanced social market economy and social policies that support a high-income welfare state. Industry plays an increasingly pivotal role in the Czech economy, because it contributes the most to gross value added. The Czech Republic enjoys a temperate continental climate with warm summers and cool winters. It is famous for its excellent beer, fine wine and delicious traditional cuisine.
"I really enjoyed my time during the International week held at Mendel University. It really looked like the organization of the event was planned accordingly, on a high level. The communication from the organization team was good. The program of the International Week itself was rich on the events like workshops,lectures, field trips, etc. The organization team made sure that every guest felt welcomed.
I think the event provided a great opportunity to strengthen collaboration between Mendel University and KFU and also build relationships with those universities that also participated in the International Week. At the GoAbroad Fair we could learn about each other, exchange university leaflets and business cards.
At the Farewell Dinner we had another chance to learn about each other and enjoy each other's company in a non - formal setting. It was a wonderful time in a beautiful place with great food and atmosphere.
I just want to thank all colleagues at the Mendel University for organizing such a great and useful event. "
