Visitor from Trento

We have a visitor from the University of Trento in the department for the next two weeks.  He is visiting under the ERASMUS scheme, which supports staff and students who want to teach or learn at partner institutions across Europe.  Our guest is here to learn about our approach to software development and how we implement our portal, identity management, and business intelligence systems.  In return, we are learning how his home institution go about these same tasks with a much smaller team.

Although I had heard of the ERASMUS support for students, I wasn't previously aware of its support for staff.  It may be interesting to find institutions elsewhere in Europe who we could visit.  ERASMUS also supports teaching staff who want to teach for a period in other institutions.
