Metropolia's partnership with HTW Berlin has been expanded once again. A delegation of twelve from Metropolia took part in an annual benchmarking seminar in early October. This year, there was another item on the agenda: to begin research partnerships.

The parties were comparing, for example, practices relating to student services, alumni activities and entrepreneurship. From the perspective of international operations, it was delightful to see that cooperation had become very fluent with HTW and that they had a number of mutual partners.

In preparation for research partnership, universities and universities of applied sciences were identifying common research strengths and interests before putting in applications for the Horizon 2020 research programme. The objective is continued cooperation between the experts and joint applications for the Horizon 2020 programme.

"HTW Berlin and Metropolia have struck a genuine chord in terms of strategic partnership," says Tuire Ranta-Meyer, Director of Stakeholder Relations and head of the Metropolia delegation to Berlin, and goes to describe that the partnership is based on genuine trust and an open exchange of ideas. She has also been impressed by how well the top management of both organisations have been committed to their work and how everything works so smoothly.
