Tarptautinę tyrėjų bendruomenę suvienys medicinos srities konferencijaThe International Week “Going International” takes place at KAUNO KOLEGIJA / University of Applied Sciences for the ninth time in April 3-7, 2017. This year the main focus of the Week is put on sustainability, technological and eco innovations, entrepreneurship and partnership.

The core event of the Week is the annual international conference “Innovative (Eco-)Technology, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development”. Another not less interesting event of the Week will be presentation of the new book “International Financial Institutions, Climate Change and the Urgency to Facilitate Clean Energy Investment in Developing and Emerging Market Economies” Prof. Hilmar Þór Hilmarsson (University of Akureyri).

We expect that the intercultural communication seminar “Intercultural Issues with International Studies: from Teachers’ and Students’ Perspectives“ held by the lecturer Wilfred Tchasse (KAUNO KOLEGIJA/UAS) will draw attention not only of the local academic staff members but international guests as well.

During the International Week over 30 lectures, workshops and seminars will be held by the lecturers from abroad.
The guests will be acquainted with KAUNO KOLEGIJA/UAS and its’ resources as potential for international cooperation in projects and applied research/art. They will have an opportunity to participate in different workshops offered by the KAUNO KOLEGIJA/UAS lecturers. Furthermore, such events as International Students’ Massage Championship or Practice Enterprise Trade Fair „Creativity – Successful Business Mover 2017”, which will take place at KAUNO KOLEGIJA/UAS during the days of the International Week, will give a chance for our guests to get a deeper insight into our academic process.

The international guests will be invited to the guided tour around Kaunas which is famous for the modernist architecture of the interwar period.
