To expand the EU-funded mobility program (Erasmus+) and research cooperation between IfMK and the Department of Journalism, Media and Communication in Gothenburg, Dr. Andreas Schwarz, Head of the Group for Research on Public Relations and Communication of Technology, visited the University of Gothenburg from 17t to 21 September.

To expand both mobility and research cooperation between IfMK and the Department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMG), Dr. Andreas Schwarz, Head of the Group for Research on Public Relations and Communication of Technology as well as Commissioner for Internationalization of the Faculty Economic Sciences and Media, visited Gothenburg University from 17 to 21 September. So far, the cooperation has been limited to the exchange of lecturers. Provided that the respective offices responsible for international cooperation authorize the plans, the agreement is to be opened for students. In addition, talks were held to intensify research cooperation in the field of risk and crisis communication.

In addition to negotiating more intensive cooperation, Andreas Schwarz gave a number of guest lectures at the JMG as well as the Department of Applied IT, among others on various topics of strategic crisis communication. In addition, he lectured at a research seminar for communication scholars at JMG in Gothenburg to present current research projects currently conducted by his Group for Research on Public Relations and Communication of Technology.

With approximately 25,000 students, the University of Gothenburg is one of the largest universities in Scandinavia and one of the most important research institutions in Sweden.
