During last week, professors from the Department of Architecture, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emina Zejnilovic and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Erna Husukic have visited Porto University. The visit was organized with the aim to strengthen the collaboration on COST Action project ‘Culture and Technology for Sustainable Development’, where they act as partners. As academic staff from Port University expressed great interest in participation on the mentioned project, professors from IBU have decided to use this opportunity to establish connections and improve the project application.
Professors had meetings with the Porto University representatives, where they presented our IBU, talked about the project application, possibilities for improvements and likelihoods for implementation. Furthermore, professors also reflected on the prospects for further cooperation between these intuitions.
The meetings were the first planned activity of a project ‘Kultura i tehnologija za odrzivi razvoj’ funded by the Federal Ministry of Education. In the upcoming months, this project will be implemented though additional events such as an exhibition as well as a student based workshop, with the theme of correlating contemporary technologies and their impact on space and place.
