The institute is very active for many years in different activities supported by ERASMUS and CEEPUS.

Initiated by the members of the EFCE Working Party “High Pressure Technology” an Intensive Course Programme for High Pressure Technology has been established in 1995. Until 2007 the programme was financially supported in the frame of SOCRATES and since 2008 by Life Long Learning. In ERASMUS+ this very successful intensive course programmes are no longer included. But the members of the Working Party decided to continue this 2 week intensive course as “The European Summer School in High Pressure Technology, ESS-HPT”, because there is an increasing need of well-educated engineering staff in high pressure technologies. Since 2001 Prof. Thomas Gamse has organised this intensive Course Programme with enthusiasm and success. At present 20 universities from 16 European countries as well as 3 companies are involved. Starting with 2015 this summer school will be organised by the University of Maribor, Slovenia and Graz University of Technology every year at the beginning of July.

The institute is very active in the field of teaching staff mobility, supported by ERASMUS. Within these mobility programme the teachers are mutualy involved in lectures of the regular curricula of the partner universities. Prof. Thomas Gamse has initiated cooperations with Prof. Paolo Alessi from University of Trieste, Italy, Prof. Maria Jose Cocero from University of Valladolid, Spain, and Prof. Can Erkey, KOC University Istanbul, Turkey. In 2010 Prof. Marcus Petermann from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, in 2013 Prof. Edit Szekely,  from Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, and in 2013 Prof. Angelo Cortesi from the University of Trieste, Italy, joined the Task Force.

Student mobility is a highlight in academic education. An increasing number of ERASMUS students from different European universities perform their bachelor, master and diploma theses at our institute.

Since 2014 our institute is partner of the CEEPUS network “Chemistry and Chemical Engineering CIII-SI-0708-02-1415, which was established by the University of Maribor, Slovenia. Within this project student and teaching staff mobility is strongly supported.
