15 lecturers and students from Riga, Sankt Petersburg and Lahti are paying a visit to the University of Gävle this week. According to Karl, such an international collaboration on the development of educational programmes is unique, especially since businesses and students take part in the process.

The program for the week includes study visits to regional businesses at the forefront of environmental technology and lectures at the University of Gävle.

“This international exchange gives us valuable knowledge about the state of the businesses in these countries,” Karl Hillman explains.
