In cooperation with our partner organization Sandson in Lund, we have carried out a further education from the 4th to the 8th of February with the focus on early childhood education. There we have seen how integration in the institutions is more advanced than in Germany and how the children are encouraged to become self-employed. However, it was also learned how similar work is being done in the two countries. On this basis, good cooperation can be deepened.
The so-called “student city” is multifaceted with numerous cafes, parks and old brick facades. The sea is nearby and in the area there are many medieval castles and palaces to admire.
But we were especially impressed by the entrepreneurial spirit of the inhabitants of this city. Tetra Park was founded in Lund, and companies such as Gambro (medical device companies) and Sony Mobile have their headquarters in the city. The IDEON Science Park is home to numerous small and medium-sized businesses in the fields of IT, biotechnology and high technology. It is working closely with the University of Lund, especially with the Technical University.
Overall, we had a very pleasant week!
