The large number of German academics working in the USA and Canada all consider returning home, and many of them eventually do so. A conference of the annual general meeting of GAIN discussed the ways and means of attracting them to a University of Applied Science when they eventually decide to make the move.

Working under the title “Europe: Integration and/or Disintegration”, this year’s Summer School from the Institute for Cooperation with Central and Eastern European Countries in Public Reform (IMO) at the BSEL saw some informative debates amongst its international students drawn from Poland, Ukraine and Germany.
