Conference Cooperation Public

On October 26th, guests cooperating with the Faculty of Economics within the Erasmus+ program arrived at the University of West Bohemia. The delegation was also accompanied by a representative of the Danube-Vltava Euro-region.

The nine-member group headed by the Dean of the Faculty of Chemical Technology and Economics Professor Philipp Keil represented the campus in Burghausen on the German-Austrian border. In addition to education in the field of entrepreneurial economics, this workplace also offers study in other areas, such as chemical technology, chemotronics or environmental technology.

Vice-rector for internationalization Dita Hommerová welcomed the guests to UWB’s campus, and members of the Faculties of Economics, Applied Sciences and Engineering along with the International Office took part in discussions with them. “We have a bilateral agreement within the Erasmus+ program with TH Rosenheim,” said the Faculty of Economics’ Vice-dean for internationalization and external affairs Jiří Preis. “During the joint meeting, various opportunities for expanding cooperation, for example in cross-border projects, were discussed not only with our faculty, but also with our colleagues from the Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Applied Sciences,” he added.

Members of the delegation also had the opportunity to meet with students over the course of the day. Professor Silvia Seibold gave a presentation for the subject KMO/MSA (Marketing studies and analyses), lecturing on marketing to students in their post-graduate master’s studies at the Faculty of Economics. The whole program was also simultaneously interpreted into Czech and German. The group of nine guests ended their visit with a tour of the campus in Bory and also took a trip to the RTI research center.
