The Global Galway Project - Internationalisation Events

The Global Galway Project Team will organise a series of short workshops and lunchtime webinars through April and May for you to hear about examples of internationalisation and give your thoughts on shaping the implementation of our global vision. 

The Global Galway Project is delighted to invite you to three internationalisation webinars and workshops as part of the Global Engagement series. These will be the first in an on-going series of events to inform and inspire internationalisation activity.

These events will give you the opportunity to join the internationalisation debate and help shape our global future.
