Online-Conference ‚Strengthening Applied Sciences in Teaching and Research through Internationalisation'

Riga, Latvia

On 25 March 2022, DAAD KIWi in cooperation with the Estonian Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Agency hosted the virtual conference 'Strengthening Applied Sciences in Teaching and Research through Internationalisation'.

The conference served as an exchange opportunity between higher education institutions from Germany, the Baltic and Nordic countries. The event focused on innovations in teaching and research in the applied sciences through international cooperation.
Participants had the opportunity to learn about different approaches to internationalisation in the applied sciences, identify potential cooperation partners and establish new networks.
