Sustainable, responsible and ethical internationalization

Anyone who has been exposed to stories about time travel cannot have missed a principle often connected with it – the time traveler should leave everything intact on their travel, or their actions can have grave implications for the future. This seems to ring increasingly true for our current daily travel as well. We are presently living in uncertain times, with a global pandemic restricting our lives to smaller circles than before, and the future looking as uncertain, with the latest IPCC report presenting worrying consequences of the climate change. All of this affects travel greatly, but in a circular motion, travel affects these crises as well.

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.

Finishing the project – International project in wood processing industry

Our international project started in January. Our project is about the wood processing industry and innovation in it. The beginning of the project, was a bit nerve-wracking, but at the same time exciting start, because most of our project team haven’t worked on a multicultural project before. But very quickly, our teamwork started to improve. There have been many phases in our project and every step has been different. This made the project more interesting. The project time went very quickly, and we are happy with the results of our work.
