Sauna and Social Isolation – The Finnish Experience

Loneliness kills (Heikkinen and Lönnqvist 1995). It is associated with increased mortality risk for both men and women, along with a higher risk of the onset of disability as well as a 64% increased chance of developing clinical dementia (Jopling 2020, 7). Loneliness hung about me in my first few weeks in Finland so for the sake of my health, and possibly yours, let’s learn a little more about it.

Simulators as a modern teaching method

The main purpose of this project is to find new resellers for our client’s products and help our client to enter the new market areas. That may sound like an easy task, but when you take a closer look at the subject and our client’s product, you realize that this is not about picnic in the park. Customers and resellers for products like this cannot be found on every corner, but that doesn’t bother us, because if these projects were easy, everyone would do this work. The client of this project is a Finnish company called Nordic Simulators Oy. They have almost 20 years of experience in healthcare education and building different types of realistic simulators and simulation facilities.

Beginning of the project with a startup company – FireSea Equipment Oy

FireSea Equipment Oy is a new startup company that makes fire safety solutions for electric vehicles. They started in spring 2020 their business.

The company found out a few years ago that extinguishing the fire from an electric vehicle is very hard. Because electric vehicles are getting more popular, there must be a solution to deal with electric vehicle fires. So, the company decided to build a pool for the electric vehicles, which will be filled with water if there happens a fire. Electric fires need a massive amount of water to get extinguished, so drowning the car, will prevent the fire from spreading everywhere.

The company’s founder had the idea to patent the plan in April 2020. FireSea Equipment Oy was established in the spring of 2020 to develop a patented product and build a prototype. This product will prevent any kind of safety harm, which might happen if firemen are trying to extinguish the fire.

A journey through the wonderful world of internationalization

The current times have challenged internationalization in unforeseen ways. As borders have closed and travel restrictions tightened the internationalization efforts have also come to a halt, at least when it comes to mobilities. At another front, this unusual era has worked as a propeller for innovation, harnessed to discover alternative routes of internationalization. In between obstacles and innovation, we are living exciting times when it comes to the future prospects of internationalization of higher education. This is also visible in the new Erasmus+ programme season (2021-2027) where the priorities are set on inclusivity, environment and climate action, and digital transformation.  The future is sustainable, digital and includes us all.
