Pohjola Norden and its teacher scholarship enabled me to visit three universities in Iceland in the framework of Erasmus non-teaching staff exchange between 4 and 10 November 2008. The University of Iceland and University of Akureyri are currently TAMK partners, and hopefully we will have a new agreement with the Iceland Academy of the Arts, too.
There has been dynamic student and staff mobility from TAMK to the Icelandic partners for more than a decade, and now we wish that we would also welcome Icelandic students and staff for exchange and visits in Tampere.
For more information of the visited institutions of higher education:
