A new perspective for Universities in Europe: the Albanian Process 2020 - 3° Multiplier Event at WUC
Updated: Dec 10, 2020
On 24 and 25 November 2020 the Albanian partner organized the 3rd and last Multiplier Event and in respect of COVID restriction it was developed a very new strategy in order to assure participation and safety. As you can see from the pictures the university used all the spaces and rooms apart from the conference hall. Speakers could give their speeches to all and be at the same time, through technologies in other rooms and online. We can consider this way a "diffuse mixed online and in presence" international conference. International thanks to speakers connected from the USA. Great job the University College Wisdom!
"It was successfully completed the International Scientific Conference “A NEW PERSPECTIVE FOR UNIVERSITIES IN EUROPE; THE ALBANIAN PROCESS 2020”, organized by the University College "Wisdom". This conference was held in the framework of the KA2 project “Cultural Studies in Business”, Erasmus +".
