Erasmus+ with Israel
HTW Dresden receives Erasmus+ funding for the expansion of the cooperation with the Design Faculty of the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT). Not only the Design Faculty of the HTW Dresden benefits from this
The Erasmus+ worldwide program promotes mobility and cooperation between universities, also beyond the borders of Europe. Since 2014 there has been a cooperation with the Design Faculty of the Institute of Technology in Holon, not far from Tel Aviv. It is the first Erasmus+ cooperation of the HTW Dresden.
The Holon Institute of Technology is a multidisciplinary university that focuses on science, technology and design and works in a highly interdisciplinary way. With the bachelor's programs Industrial Design, Interior Design and Visual Communication as well as the master's program Integrated Design, design education in Holon is very broad. "The extensive profile, the excellent reputation in the design community and the very good international networking of the Faculty of Design makes the HIT a promising partner for us", says Professor Diana Simon, Dean of the Faculty of Design (HTW Dresden), who shares the cooperation together with Dr. Yael Eylat Van-Essen (HIT).
"Multicultural understanding is essential for designers. The development of international partnerships and the promotion of mobility for students and teachers are essential components in conveying an intercultural identity. With this in mind, we would like to make our collaboration with Holon sustainable and lively in the coming years," explains Diana Simon.
Students, lecturers and staff of the Faculty of Design can now submit applications for travelling to the partner university. But also lecturers and employees from other faculties and departments have the opportunity to apply for the exchange program. Interested parties will be advised by the International Office. The selection of applications is carried out in cooperation with the Faculty of Design.
