HTW Berlin and Metropolia UAS organized their seventh joint annual meeting in October 15th-16th at the stunning campus of Wilhelminenhofstrassen in Berlin. For the first time this forum of interaction and cooperation was held as a conference open to all staff. The theme was
Future City Challenges which is associated with many topical research areas.
From Metropolia conference presentations were held by Pekka Hautala / Harri Santamala, Kaija Matinheikki-Kokko, Timo Leppänen, Aarne Klemetti, Timo Seuranen, Kari Salo, Seppo Vanhatalo, Anitta Pankkonen as well as Merja Bauters via Skype. In addition, Katrina Schrey-Niemenmaa held a workshop of curriculum cross-evaluation for the conference participants.
The purpose of the conference was to present topical research projects related to the theme as well as newly emerging cooperation ideas. It was truly rewarding to see that HTW Berlin already considers Metropolia as the first choice of partner when planning international projects. Although research interests and areas of expertise do not always match with each other, there is plenty of common ground for developing the internationalization of teaching and RDI-projects.
Berlin is a great city and the atmosphere of co-operation at HTW Berlin is absolutely fabulous. Vice-Rector Matthias Knaut is committed to cooperate; he was both the chairman of the conference as well as the host of the visit.
Before the conference, a first rector-level visit to Alice Salomon Hochschule was made. Alice Salomon is an important partner in Berlin because HTW Berlin does not offer education in the field of health care and social services.
The cooperation with ASH Berlin began three years ago and it has expanded gratifyingly: in addition to teacher-, student- and staff mobility Metropolia and ASH Berlin plan joint minor studies together with the European network of social and health care sector. Also in the field of research, prospects for close cooperation are really good, as a lot of common shared experiences, strengths and challenges came up in the discussions. Also, at ASH Berlin the spirit of the meeting was very natural and effortless.
