ATHENA Meet & Greet


On the end of September 2023, the School of Health Sciences & Social Work of Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS), Associated Partner of ATHENA since January 2023, organized a Meet & Greet for all interested staff members with reference to health and social sciences within ATHENA.

In total, eight participants from the Hellenic Mediterranean University, the University of Maribor, the University of Orleans and the University of Vigo seized the opportunity and participated in a hybrid setting. Over the course of the two days, the participants, primarily from the professions nursery, social work and physiotherapy, had a lot of possibilities to discuss important topics and options for further cooperation during three workshops regarding the curricula, the internships and the different research topics. Additionally, a panel discussion took place with experts from Intercultural Management, Medical Information Technology, Didactics, Nursing, Radiology Technology and Social work, on the topic “Developments & Trends in the different countries and health professions”. Times for socializing were of course also planned. The Meet & Greet ended with a wrap-up session and the identification of the next steps.

The organizers from CUAS, under the lead of Michael Suppanz, head of the degree program physiotherapy, and with support from Jama Aleksandra, head of the International Relations Office, and many colleagues, want to thank all participants for the open-minded and enriching exchange. We are looking forward to successful cooperation in the future!
