Half-time summary of FHWS 3IN

[Translate to Englisch:] Halbzeit Header

The project FHWS 3IN supports the 3IN Alliance, together with other universities from Finland (Diak), Norway (VID), Romania (UniTBv) and Portugal (ISAVE). Together, they fight for the three INs inclusion, integration and involvement. The project FHWS 3IN started in 2020 and now, after 18 months, it is time for an interim conclusion.
Corona was a big factor and especially the problem of keeping an international project going in between lockdowns and travel restrictions was a big challenge. However, FHWS 3IN succeeded by hosting several online events accessible to students, professors and employees of all 3IN partner universities. International lectures, events during the Human Rights Week or intercultural workshops: 3IN adapted well to the situation and made the best of it. They chose to focus on digital networking, and it definitely paid off.
Of course, it was a shame that stays abroad had to be postponed, but overall 3IN has gained a lot of experience and strength over the last 18 months. The team thought outside of the box, got creative and enjoyed implementing new digital ways of teaching.

If you want to know what we have achieved so far, you can find the latest mid-term report here.

Joint Online Course

[Translate to Englisch:] ""

On October 4th, the 8-week joint online course (JOC) of the 3IN alliance started with students from the 3IN partner universities DIAK in Finland, VID in Norway and FHWS. This exciting pilot project of the 3IN Alliance, where, for the first time, students from the partner universities are enrolled in a joint course, was organised by Christine Lukash (VID), Meg Sakilayan-Latvala (DIAK) and Sven Warnke (FHWS).

In the first session one could immediately get an impression about the use of the digital space: to get to know each other, interactive methods were used and the use of break-out session for direct contact of the students created a pleasant atmosphere in the digital classroom.

The three lecturers joined together in creating a course that is not only aimed at gaining knowledge and scientific skills about the “Planetary Health” field, but also to improve students’ skills of international cooperation and teamwork. The sessions will last for about three hours each time over the course of eight weeks.

Anna Lassonczyk, international journey

[Translate to Englisch:] Aktuelles Header

Anna Lassonczyk, certified intercultural coach, will take us on a virtual international


On the 20th of April, Intercultural Competence Coach Anna Lassonczyk was invited for the afternoon at FHWS. The project FHWS 3IN coordinated the virtual meeting and 20 participants from different partner universities of the 3IN Alliance were invited to join. Ms. Lassonczyk normally advises big international companies on how to maintain and establish successful international relations, but on Tuesday she coached students of FHWS. The three hours on Tuesday afternoon were filled with a good mixture of facts & figures and useful tips & tricks on how to deal with a typical culture shock or the traditions of cultures all over the world. Participants were enlightened that Germans can be seen as peaches as well as coconuts as it all depends on the perspective: Are Germans hard on the outside and soft on the inside or is it the other way around?

International lecture „Responses to the Crisis – a Transnational View”

[Translate to Englisch:] Header Ringvorlesung

The international lecture „Responses to the Crisis – a Transnational View” took place via ZOOM on 14th and 15th May 2020 and was organized by our project FHWS 3IN, a cooperation of FAS and HSIN.

For the lecture, ten speakers from six of the 3IN Alliances’ partner universities came together and gave a report on how the Corona Crisis affected their home countries. As the speakers came from different European countries, participants, as well as lecturers, were able to exchange information and expertise on an international level and to gain an insight into the crisis management of other European countries. The topics covered a wide field of expertise: from methods of how to make a higher education institute crisis-proof, over general crisis strategies, to the role of religious organizations during a crisis. Thanks to the input of the lecturers as well as the lively discussions afterwards, it became clear that we can still learn from each other, even during isolation and in times of a crisis.

Human-Rights-Week 2020

Header Human rights Week

Julien Cazala (USPN, France), Marja Katisko (DIAK, Finland) and Achim Förster (FHWS, Germany) are all lecturers from universities that are members of the 3IN Alliance. This alliance follows the joint mission to address societal challenges with innovative life-long learning opportunities. The 3IN member universities share a strong commitment to human dignity, social justice and diversity.
The European Union and its member states have long been committed to Human Rights, to protect them for EU citizens and to promote them worldwide. However, violations of those rights still occur or are even fostered due to questionable policies. Therefore, we want to focus on the European Union and its member states to analyse how they protect and promote Human Rights. We want to bring different perspectives from different regions together and have short inputs about the situations on site.
