Closer cooperation in the two areas is expected to have positive effects on the universities' internationalization strategies. The participants will have an opportunity to present their own policies and practices and to discuss various options with all the stakeholders. Tours of the campus of Freie Universität are scheduled, including a tour of the university's Water Sports Center in Wannsee. There will also be field trips to various cultural institutions in Berlin and the Carnival of Cultures. At the beginning of the International Week Dr. Siegbert Wuttig, the director of the DAAD's National Agency for Cooperation with European Universities, will give a presentation on how the new Erasmus+ Programme promotes cooperation projects in the areas of sports and internationalization. Prof. Dr. Gudrun Doll-Tepper, a professor of inclusive education, physical activity, and sport at Freie Universität Berlin, will give a presentation on the potential of sports for integrating international students in everyday life at universities. Doll-Tepper is also vice president of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), president of the German Olympic Academy (DOA), and an advisor to the World Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE).
The 2014 ERASMUS International Week is being sponsored by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the Directorate General for Education and Culture (DG EAC).
