International activities

On international fora, Arene also influences university of applied sciences education and its position. Universities of applied sciences encounter the same challenges in Finland as they do in other European countries. Co-operation with Asia and North America is also becoming increasingly important.

Arene feels that international co-operation is necessary and has actively established relationships with European affiliate and umbrella organisations. Reciprocal visits with different organisations and jointly agreed targets for developing the European Higher Education Area are examples of this co-operation.
A concrete example of successful co-operation with European affiliate organisations is the joint statement regarding the Bologna Process.
