Our academic international coordinator Sohvi Sirkesalo was very busy last week. The beginning of the week she spent in Brussels preparing EU funded projects, then hosting three international delegations.

First visitors on Wednesday were Jurate Urboniene, Gene Sliaustiene, Gerda Ivanickiene, Vaida Bartkute-Norkuniene and Inga Dabkute came from Utena University of Applied Sciences, Lithuania.

On Thursday and Friday Sohvi hosted Jitka Hejtmanová from FAMU, the Film and TV Faculty of Academy of Performing Arts and Jan Louis De Bruyn and Bart Geerts from MAD-Faculty (Media Arts Design) of KHLim, Belgium.

The guests were very impressed by Demola, our joint project and innovation platform with Tampere universities and enterprises.

FAMU and MAD-Faculty are our old partners and the visits gave many ideas and stimulation to develop further the cooperation.
