Networking Event for US and Finnish Higher Education Institutions

Internationalisation Higher education Generation Study Abroad

Finnish National Agency for Education EDUFI will organize an interactive networking event for Finnish and US higher education institutions for creating new partnerships. The event is organized at EDUFI (Hakaniemenranta 6, Helsinki, Finland) on Thursday September 26th 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

EDUFI participates in IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative as a country partner. This initiative acknowledges the strong existing ties between institutions in our two countries, as well as the significant opportunities to form new, innovative linkages. The aim is to increase the number of American students who do an exchange or internship in Finland and to increase and deepen partnerships between US and Finnish HEIs. In that framework we have organised several events for US and Finnish higher education institutions in Finland and in US in cooperation with IIE.

Last year in September 2018 Generation Study Abroad International Symposium and International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP) was organised in Helsinki and in February 2019 a Finnish–American Networking & Partnership Forum in New York. These events have given a wonderful support and understanding that such cooperation is needed and useful.

This coming networking event is organized during EAIE Helsinki 2019 conference and it is a great opportunity to network with Finnish universities and universities of applied sciences while in Helsinki!  Our event is free of charge and does not require registration to the EAIE conference.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Helsinki! Warmly welcome!
