Advantage Austria organizes Austrian-Swedish know-how exchange on education system

4. May 2017

Knowledge imperative to increase export of services

Almost every day, we receive inquiries on the subject of service export to Sweden and Norway, Commercial Counsellor Albrecht Zimburg explains. Without the proper training of Austrian experts this would not be possible.

From 25 to 28 April the Austrian Society for School and Law visited the most important stakeholders within Sweden´s education system, in order to trace current trends and best practice examples. Expert consultant Waltraud Heinrich of Advantage Austria organized visits at the Ministry of Education, the University Council, the Swedish Teachers' trade Union and the Education Department from the city of Stockholm. A joint lecture also highlighted the important cooperation of the Austrian Embassy´s commercial and the consular section.

In addition, the group was given the opportunity to attend lessons by various educational institutions, as good education is the basis for successful service export and trade within the EU. The preschool "Täppan" at Södermalm, the "Stockholm Science & Innovation" high school with focus on technology and innovation as well as the University of Stockholm let the group participate in classes. Also questions about integration and language teaching methods for newcomers to Sweden of different age groups were explored, when visiting the employment agency as well as “Globala Gymnasium” in Stockholm.
