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.
The IPSERA Veszprém Workshop on Experimental gamification studies into decision making in buyer-supplier relations was a great success. On 24 and 25th June, a mix of PhD students, senior academics, practitioners and researchers had an interesting discussion of the aspect of ‘uncertainty’ in decision taking. With 8 presentations and enough time for discussion in a wonderful and stimulating environment, it certainly will be continued in the future! Thank you IPSERA and University of Pannonia for sponsoring flights and hotel of invited speakers and the great catering by Oliva!
