About the webinar

First founded in Germany around 50 years ago, Universities of Applied Sciences offer excellent teaching coupled with a highly practical and business orientation. Nowadays, Germany’s more than 200 Universities of Applied Sciences account for an important part of the German higher education and research landscape and are regarded as an engine for regional development and innovative capacity. An important cornerstone of these type of universities is the collaboration between the universities and partners in industry.
