The aim of Nordplus is to promote the mobility of students and staff within the Nordic and Baltic countries and to promote cooperation in developing new courses and new intensive courses within higher education.
Within Nordplus, a number of various networks exist. These are mainly directed towards different disciplines. The Nordplus Framework Programme offers financial support to a variety of educational cooperation projects between partners in the area of lifelong learning from the eight participating countries in the Baltic and Nordic regions.
EkoTekNord is one of these networks and was launched in 1998 based upon earlier networks, which in started developing in the early 1990s. Business, Information Technology, Engineering, Logistics and Media are its main disciplines.
The main goal of the network is to promote student and teacher mobility between the partners within it. It is also of importance to promote the Nordic/Baltic dimension at the partner universities within the network. Students wishing to apply for a mobility semester at ViA can view the courses offered in English and have a look at our EkoTekNord partner institutions.
Developed in close cooperation with local industry, intensive courses involve students and teachers from different universities within the network come together and work with a set theme. This cooperation enables a dynamic interaction between the participants from the network and industry and opens possibilities for future internships for the students.
