In November, it was finally time for the St. Pölten UAS International Week again: From 21-25 November 2022, international guests from all around the world, students and staff had plenty of opportunities to get to know the many opportunities for international experiences the Austrian UAS leading the E³UDRES² Alliance has to offer. With the theme of the International Week revolving around "Future Universities", various items on the programme offered insights into different aspects of future-proof higher education, especially highlighting the E³UDRES² approach in this regard. For example, almost each day of the International Week started out with a Morning Session hosted by E³UDRES²: Plenary sessions held in the St. Pölten UAS Future Lab, where topics like "Research at the Future University" or "The Students of the Future University" were addressed in various ways, such as for example panel discussions. The panel discussion involving students was especially interesting for visitors who never had the chance to participate in E³UDRES² events before - students who took part in formats like the I Living Labs or the Bootcamp talked about their experiences on stage, providing insights into how these formats can benefit students and university staff alike.

At the heart of the International Week is also the Go International! Day - a yearly fair-like event at the campus premises, where different opportunities for getting international experience are showcased. E³UDRES² not only was present with its own booth, providing information and fun booth activities for anyone interested, but also individual membering institutions such as Fulda UAS hosted booths at the event, drawing attention to mobility opportunities for students and staff.
Another highlight of the week certainly was the E³UDRES² Science Pub Quiz hosted during the traditional Lecturers' Dinner. Taking place at the "Rendl Keller", a classic Austrian restaurant built into a wine cellar, participants not only got to enjoy delicious Austrian cuisine, but also had to prove their knowledge in the Pub Quiz. After a tight race between the teams coming from different departments and backgrounds, an international team of seven higher education professionals took the prize home with them.
