TAMK negotiates with the first potential international strategic partner

Perttu Heino introduces TAMK's RDI to München's delegation: Heinz Ziegler (second left at the table), Sven Winterhald (third) and Wolfgand Döhl (fourth). The TAMK representatives are President Markku Lahtinen (left), Noora Kahra, Lauri Hietalahti and Kirsi Tolvanen.

TAMK aims at starting a strategic partnership with international partner universities. The plan is to choose two partner universities with which cooperation and student, teacher and/or staff exchanges have worked well for several years in more than one field. In the future, TAMK hopes to deepen cooperation with these universities by including more fields and especially the Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) units.

The first potential strategic partner is Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS) from Germany. Their delegation is currently at TAMK.

The universities review past cooperation and discuss possible future plans on 24 - 25 October 2012. The President, Vice-Preseidents and representatives of TAMK Schools introduce TAMK to the German delegates.

Another strategic partner TAMK wishes to have is the University of Salford from the United Kingdom. They were to visit TAMK this week, too, but the visit has been postponed due to scheduling challenges.
