International Exchange with the University of Central Florida

From May 4 to 8, two top-class guest lecturers and scientists from the University of Central Florida (UCF) visited the IfMK: Professor Dr. Timothy Sellnow and Professor Dr. Deanna Sellnow.

Dr. Andreas Schwarz (Group for Research in PR and Communication of Technology ), Professor Dr. Timothy Sellnow (UCF), Professor Dr. Deanna Sellnow (UCF), Sophia Siegfried (Head International Office ), Franziska Rau (International Office), Sigrid Wille (Leonardo Büro Thüringen), Professor Dr. Martin Löffelholz (Department of Media Studies) (f.l.t.r.)

During their stay in Ilmenau, Professor Dr. Timothy Sellnow and Professor Dr. Deanna Sellnow, who are two of the leading international scientists in the field of risk communication, gave interesting guest lectures on this topic for students and lecturers. Their visit is also part of the plan to strengthen and sustainably expand the exchange between the IfMK and the UCF Nicholson School of Communication. To this end, discussions have also been held in recent days on the strategic development of the cooperation between the two institutes. The existing university partnership between TU Ilmenau and UCF already enables both students and lecturers of both universities to obtain funding for a stay abroad. However, there is still untapped potential for a closer partnership, as for instance in the form of a double degree program.
