The project of the virtual laboratory of cultural exchange with Ohio University helps strengthen the internationalisation focus of HSE University–Perm and develop students' soft skills of students, primarily improving leadership qualities. In addition, it is an opportunity to gain experience in international cooperation without leaving the country.
After the first round, we received a lot of positive feedback from laboratory participants from both sides. We hope that the second round of the project will be vivid and interesting and will strengthen intercultural understanding and our cooperation with Ohio University.
