Are you involved or interested in Virtual International Collaboration (VIS)? Would you like to be inspired and exchange ideas and best practices with experienced and starting VIS colleagues? Then come to the first Live VIS Event on Tuesday 8 November 2022 at Hogeschool Utrecht!

A wide range of issues will be addressed, such as: how to develop and structure a project, what are good ice-breakers, how does a project with 500+ participants work.
