We were pleased to have 3IN Alliance staff and students joining our second joint webinar on Wednesday 18 November 2020 at 15:00-18:00 CET. The webinar was hosted by University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS).

The experts from VID – Specialized University (Norway), DIAK – Diaconia University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and FHWS – University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (Germany) shared their insights and experiences on how to respond to the challenges in including disadvantaged groups in higher education.
