Visiting WSTiE The University College of Tourism and Ecology in Sucha Beskitzka, Poland
Within the framework of NAWA Project we had the opportunity to visit WSTiE, the University College of Tourism and Ecology in Sucha Beskidzka, south Poland in June 2019. With the participation of four countries (Poland, Hungary, England and Italy), the first phase of the project workshop was about Design thinking as a tool for practical support of science and business development based on international partnership. The project (ending in autumn 2020) involves both practical and theoretical activities in connection with tourism and business.
During the project meeting we visited the main attractions in Lesser Poland, including Krakow and Babiogórski National Park, to get a closer look at the touristic features of the area. Based on our previous knowledge and experiences we filled in some SWOT analysis and McKinsey Matrix to contribute to the research of the Polish university concerning the tourism development of the region.
In order to enhance the spirit of entrepreneurship, all students were supposed to give a presentation on their ideas about how their university supports them to become an entrepreneur or start a career in business life.
To sum up, this project meeting was a great opportunity to encounter and successfully collaborate with international students and professors. Inspired by the best practices shared in Poland we are looking forward to the next phase of the NAWA project.
Let’s Learn How to Learn! – Learning skills development for secondary school students
Consortium led by the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Pannonia won the grant titled ’LELLE2 – Let’ learn how to learn! – Learning skills development for secondary school students’ in the frame of Erasmus+ announced by the European Committee in 2018. The European Union supports the project number 2018-1-HU01-KA201-047839 with €297.386 starting on September 1st, 2018 planned ending on December 31st, 2020. The University of Pannonia leads the strategic partnership project collaborating with Eszterházy Károly University – Hungarian Institute for Education Research and Development (Hungary), the Statny Pedagogicky Ustav (Slovakia), the Cirkevná spojená škola MARIANUM (Slovakia), Liceul Teoretic „Téglás Gábor” (Romania), Kuressaare Gümnaasium (Estonia), and the I. Béla Comprehensive School, Dorm and Primary School from Szekszárd (Hungary).
The LELLE2 project idea came from the success of ERASMUS+ project LELLE (http://lelle.gtk.uni-pannon.hu/en/home/) which focused on the research, measurement and development of learning skills (managing own learning process, critical thinking, problem solving). In order to be successful during the higher educational studies or finding a job factual knowledge is not enough, certain additional soft skills are also needed.
These key competences are not taught in the institutions so that secondary students need to acquire these skills themselves. The main objective of our project is to provide secondary school students with learning skills development and to equip them with skills that can be used on the job market and in the secondary and higher education.
During the 28-month project the Partnership lead by the Faculty of Business and Economics is to achieve the implementation of the
following intellectual outputs:
- Best Practice Collection on Learning Skills Development (compilation of state-of-the-art learning skills development methods available for assessing and developing the learning skills of secondary school students)
- How to Teach How to Learn – teachers training in secondary schools (training material for secondary school teachers and provide training for them)
- Learning skills assessment of secondary school students (taking into account the skills and abilities of secondary school students, and the demands of higher education and employers)
- Pedagogical materials for learning skills development
- European Learning Skills Development Gateway (it will be a knowledge share portal and will also function as a knowledge community)
The first transnational project meeting was held in Veszprém on 8th – 9th October, 2018. The Partnership successfully started the project work in the Kick-off meeting.

The FESSUD project will close 5 years of research about financialisation of our economy. It will present its main findings and policy recommendations for a financial system better serving the economy, society and the environment.
FESSUD brings together expertise from 14 leading universities across Europe and South Africa and PLS as the only civil society organisation to look afresh at how the financial system affects the world around us. This project has studied the growth and impacts of the financial system in Europe and offers recommendations to make the financial system work for society, the economy and the environment and not – as has sometimes been the case – the other way round.
The FESSUD project targets a wide public going from policy makers to representatives of the business sector, through civil society, to academics and citizens from the EU and beyond.
