From July 2 to 6 Mira Buchner, a member of knowledge and technology transfer, was visiting the Portuguese university Instituto Politécnico de Setúbal (IPS). The focus of her visit was the topic of science communication. Buchner and the colleagues in the departments “Support Unit for Innovation, Research and Development and Entrepreneurship”, “Communication” and “International Office” exchanged experiences as well as best practices and developed new ideas for the public relations work in research.
The project focuses on the modernization and development of curricula for the qualification students in transdisciplinary education system in the network with companies, research institutions and stakeholders of the region. The project strengthens European co-operation in transdisciplinary education and internationalization, which has been rather limited due to the strong scientific traditions in HE-education systems.
