The Faculty had the idea of organizing an international spring school in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Munich. The first school was held in March 2011. The school is prepared and organized by the academic staff from both institutions. The school’s field of study and its topics are based on a previously conducted joint research simultaneously organized by institutions in both countries. Added value is a comparative analysis of the results and different phenomena occurring in both countries. In the beginning, the participants of the school were only the students from the two partner institutions, later to be joined by students of regional universities/faculties which have good cooperation with the Faculty. The working language of the school is English.
