A look back at the ALTECS Summer University 2014

Today the participants of the ALTECS Summer University received their well-deserved participation certificates at the Closing Ceremony at STU MTF Trnava.

ParticipantsIn the ALTECS Summer University, 28 Students from Austria and Slovakia had the opportunity to learn about the complexities of future-oriented regional development, first of all through lectures on a broad range of topics – such as Climate Change, Food Systems, Creativity and Knowledge Exchange – held by experts in their field. Second of all students gained real-life knowledge by implementing projects with regional SMEs in cross-country project groups. Multiple excursions to companies as well as other sites of interest (such as Hainburg at the Danube on the topic of Participation and Regional Development) gave participants the opportunity of experiencing yet other relevant practical side of the issues tackled.

ParticipantsLast but not least personal relations developed in the course of the Summer University, the student group quickly developed a team spirit that made participating in ALTECS even more interesting.

The student evaluation showed that overall students were very glad to having been part of the ALTECS Summer University.
