Study and practice - cooperation between universities and companies

The Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes | University of Applied Sciences is pleased to invite you to its Virtual Staff Training Days, held on December 1st – 2nd 2020, and it is designed for administrative and academic staff responsible for the international agenda. The Staff Days were originally foreseen to be face-to-face in Saarbrücken but, given the COVID-19 situation, the program has been switched to a fully online event.
