Dr. Helmut Voulliéme, Guest from Ostfalia UAS
Dr. Helmut Voulliéme, Professor in Interactive Media from Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences (earlier Braunschweig/Wolfenbüttel UAS) paid a visit to TAMK this week. On Wednesday he visited TAMK main campus to meet Head of International Office Riku-Matti Kinnunen & other international office staff members and Director of R&D Perttu Heino.
Ostfalia UAS has been TAMK partner for a long time and the exchange and cooperation have been intense, but there has been no contacts in the fields of art and media. On Thursday Helmut Voulliéme visited the School of Art and Media at Finlayson Campus.
Helmut Voulliéme is head of the Media Design Programme which started a couple of years ago in Salzgitter Campus of the university, so he is the right person to talk about extending cooperation between Ostfalia and TAMK to include exchange and other cooperation between the Ostfalia Media Design Programme and TAMK Media Programme during the visit. The result of the visit was excellent, and we might see professors and students from Salzgitter already in May participating in School of Art and Media International Week 3-7 of May.
After the School of Art and Media tour he visited our neighbour, the ProAcademy study programme in entrepreneurship, which was introduced by Jukka Siltanen.
Of course there was also a visit to Demola, the joint innovation space of companies and students of all Tampere Universities.
