Guest lecturers from Japan

Last week Turistica was marked by Japanese culture and the Erasmus+ exchange programme. We hosted assoc. prof. Kunio Shirahada from the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) Institute, an Erasmus+ partner of the University of Primorska. The topic of the lectures for students as well as other interested participants was trends of service innovation and knowledge and value co-creation for human well-being with a case of traditional Japanese services in tourism.

We also hosted dr. Hisashi Masuda from Kyoto University, who presented a conceptual model on collaboration between local and big businesses through tourism to our students.

Turistica values a lot our cooperation with the colleagues from Japan and the integration of knowledge with the tourism business, because Japanese old traditions of hospitality encompass many wisdoms, which we lack in today’s boutique tourism products.

Exchange programmes – a priceless opportunity for students

»Erasmus: Changing lives, opening minds« is a slogan defining the Erasmus+ programme. Moreover, it really seems that Turistica’s students accepted it, as each year they are being more and more active in this field. This year as well, almost 70 students applied for the Erasmus+ exchange programme, but in contrast to the last years, most of them applied for the student mobility for placements (practical experience).

We congratulate the students and wish them a lot of success!

This study year we will host 30 incoming students from other European countries, i. e. Spain, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary and Romania, who will present their countries and universities at the traditional International evenings of UP FTŠ Turistica.

Some facts about Erasmus exchanges at Turistica (period 2012-2015):
