Join us for the first BI4E seminar!

Are you interested in learning how European universities are enhancing their vision for the future? Do you want to hear about the challenges and successes of the merger process that led to the creation of Munster Technological University? Then you should join us for the first BI4E seminar hosted by MTU!

What is the BI4E seminar?

The BI4E seminar is part of a series of events organized by the BI4E project partners to share their best practices and experiences in strategic planning, institutional transformation, research cooperation, knowledge transfer, talent attraction and entrepreneurship. It is also an opportunity to learn from each other and to strengthen the network of higher education institutions and cooperation with surrounding ecosystems.

The first BI4E seminar will take place on Thursday 29th June 2023 at MTU in Cork, Ireland. It will focus on the theme of “Building Strategic Planning and Forward-looking Capacities”, which is part of work package 2, led by the University of Rouen-Normandy.

The seminar will feature a hybrid event that will give partners an insight into the journey of the transformational merger process that took place for MTU to gain Technological University status and officially become Munster Technological University in January 2021. The event will be presented by Mr. Tim Daly, Head of Strategic Development at MTU.

What else is happening at MTU?

The BI4E seminar is part of a two-day study visit event hosted by MTU from the 27th to the 29th of June 2023. These study visits are aimed at students from the widening partners, Romania and Bulgaria, who want to gain deeper insights into selected universities. In this case, after spending a couple of days at the University of Skövde (Sweden), some Romanian and Bulgarian students will learn about MTU’s strategic planning processes and its innovation and enterprise activities.

The study visit will also include a tour of MTU’s campus and facilities, as well as a social programme to enjoy Cork’s culture and hospitality.
