Staff Week took place at UWB during the first week of June. The event was attended by 18 representatives from 12 European universities across 8 different countries and included participants from existing partner universities as well as representatives from potential new partner institutions.

During the week of June 3rd to 7th, the International Office at the University of West Bohemia, in collaboration with the German university OTH Amberg-Weiden, organized the fourth Czech-German Staff Week. A diverse program was prepared for the participants, including three days at UWB in Pilsen and two days at OTH Amberg-Weiden in Germany. This year's theme was "Think Positive: Current Issues in Internationalisation – Critical Incidents, International Student Integration and BIP's."

Staff Week was attended by employees from partner universities such as the University of Ruse "Angel Kanchev" from Bulgaria and the Università degli Studi del Piemonte Orientale from Italy. Representatives from the German Philipps-Universität Marburg and the French Université de Limoges, both members of the EUPeace alliance along with UWB, also participated. New potential partners, including the Polytechnic University of Valencia from Spain and the French university ESEO, were also in attendance.

The event was officially opened on Monday by the Vice-Rector for Strategy and Development, Prof. Ing. Josef Basl, CSc. In the afternoon, all participants presented their universities and then met with UWB faculty representatives to discuss collaboration opportunities. Tuesday's program featured a lecture on "Critical Incidents in HEI," followed by an afternoon workshop. After the university program concluded, participants toured the Pilsner Urquell Brewery and the center of Pilsen. On Wednesday, the program continued at the university in Weiden, where a lecture and subsequent workshop on "Exchange of Experience on Blended Intensive Programmes" were held, led by representatives from the German University of Vechta.
