For the first time this year, Technische Hochschule Rosenheim organised the International Staff Week targeting the staff working in offices for international cooperation. Lidija Getto, Head of International Relations Office, and Josipa Pleša, Erasmus coordinator for outgoing student mobility, participated in the International Staff Week as representatives of the University of Osijek. During a five-day meeting, they presented the University of Osijek’s activities related to international and bilateral cooperation, as well as student and staff mobility. In addition to active participation in workshops dealing with teamwork issues, blended intensive programmes – BIP and international student exchange, Lidija and Josipa held several meetings with colleagues from France, Germany and Finland. Study programme of the Faculty of Medicine organised in German language, study programme in Nursing organised by the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Health and study programmes offered by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek attracted special attention. Among workshops held during the International Staff Week, two workshops were especially interesting, namely the workshop about industrial production process during which the hosts presented organisation of practical classes for students of technical studies at Technische Hochschule Rosenheim, and the workshop on teamwork in an international environment with practical examples on how to organise and realise international cooperation efficiently through teamwork.

Studying in Rosenheim provides study conditions in one of the most beautiful regions in Germany. With a wide choice of courses, excellent programmes, close links with industry and research, Technische Hochschule Rosenheim offers a promising perspective. As one of the best higher education institutions in south-eastern Bavaria, it combines a diverse and innovative profile with strong regional roots and an international reputation. Students have an opportunity to create not only regional, but also national and international connections with the industry sector and actively participate in research. Study projects, diploma theses and applied research programs provide a framework for continuous cooperation with industry, including small and medium-sized enterprises. Technische Hochschule Rosenheim acts as an initiator, partner and catalyst of positive economic development in the region and beyond. Referring to international cooperation, contacts and partnerships are realised through exchanges of students, lecturers and staff, as well as educational and research projects. As the International Staff Week organisers emphasised, this makes them an excellent team among competitors. The way they think and act is shaped by a sense of responsibility for achievement of a common goal. Their cooperation with others is characterised by trust, personal integrity, mutual respect and open communication.

The project is funded by the Erasmus+ KA202. The project objective is to create a platform that will enable the so-called research-based teaching. The main idea is that teachers introduce more easily the latest scientific findings into the course contents that they teach. For this purpose, a software platform is to be created that would use machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to find appropriate scientific materials (publications, books, scientific articles), research groups which deal with the requested topics, institutions and organisations, etc. On the other hand, students shall be encouraged to use the latest scientific materials when dealing with their obligations in certain courses. The company Research Unfolded Sweden AB acts as a project coordinator.

Project partners are:

  • University of A Coruña, A Coruña, Spain
  • Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek, Osijek, Republic of Croatia (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology – FERIT)
  • The company RUnIT, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Sapienza University, Rome, Italy
  • University West, Trollhättan, Sweden

From 24 – 25 May 2022, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mirko Kohler and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Zdravko Krpić attended a two-day kick-off project meeting held at the University West in Trollhättan, Sweden. During the meeting, they visited laboratories of the Production Technology Centre (PTC) which are engaged in the development of production processes for the processing industry.
