LUT has signed an agreement to deepen cooperation with the Fulbright Finland Foundation. The aim is to explore joint opportunities and new ways of cooperation between the parties.
”Fulbright Finland provides invaluable experience and networks for Finnish-US academic collaboration. Together, we aim to explore new avenues for bridging the academic societies in Finland and the US,” says Kirsimarja Blomqvist, professor of business studies at LUT and board member of Fulbright Finland.
The purpose of the Fulbright Finland Foundation is to promote a wider exchange of knowledge and professional talents through educational contacts between Finland and the United States by offering grants, support services, and an active alumni programme.
“LUT University has been an excellent partner and we look forward to working together to build our collaboration even further,” Foundation CEO Terhi Mölsä says.
”I’m extremely excited that we’ve found mutual enthusiasm to explore opportunities together with Fulbright. My message to LUT staff and students is that when you consider cooperation with Americans, you consider Fulbright. I’m confident the outcomes of our agreement will be exceptional,” adds Petri Ajo, CGO at LUT and a Fulbright alumnus.
