Chania Campus

Dear friends and partners,

After careful consideration, the International Relations Office of the Hellenic Mediterranean University has decided to postpone it’s Erasmus Week hosted by the Department of Electronic Engineering in Chania, Crete, Greece. We are working to re-schedule the event sometime during October 2020. This decision was made due to the health risks posed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the precautious measurements we are taking as University & Country to not spread the virus within the community.

The Agency has confirmed that all the actions regarding Erasmus KA103 can be extended from 24 months to 36 months so your International Office will not have a problem to support your mobility to Chania. Regarding our ICM partners (KA107), if you decide to travel (and we want it very much) please change your tickets and we will try to cover any charge regarding the re-booking of your tickets. So let’s make it!

For re-scheduling purposes, we have launched a doodle voting that will help us to select the most appropriate dates to meet and host you in the sunny island of Crete and the beautiful city of Chania. The proposed periods are two: 11 – 16th of October 2020 and 18th to the 23rd of October 2020. The link for the doodle to vote is the following: https://doodle.com/poll/uk52nwui2diguam2

The decision has not been taken lightly, as we have been working hard and were looking forward to meeting you and strengthening our partnership. However, for this global event with 120 registrations from 20 different countries, the IRO of the HMU feels the responsibility to make this decision for your safety.

Your health, safety, and wellbeing and that of our students, employees, and partners is and remains our number one priority. Better be safe than sorry!

We deeply apologize for all the inconvenience you may experience due to our decision, but we hope for your understanding.

In the meantime, we plan a lot of online actions to support and extend our collaboration. Stay tuned and see you in October on our island!!!!

With my best regards

The IRO Team and

Dr.Konstantinos Petridis

Academic Director
