Call for papers: UAS Journal 1/2020, Current topics

AMK-lehti / UAS Journal issue 1/2020 is themed with current topics and the diverse functions and different roles of universities of applied sciences in cooperation with companies, as well as in research and development activities.

How do universities of applied sciences develop their cooperation services to promote cooperation with companies and the world of work? How can R&D activities help create permanent service and cooperation models to support communities, and support teaching facilities?

In this themed issue we want to bring forward varied current topics in higher education, such as developing higher education pedagogy and career guidance, cooperation with the world of work, developing services, and possibilities in R&D and work-based learning.

We are also looking for concrete examples of cooperation between universities of applied sciences and the world of work, as well as sustainability and effective results in R&D.

We wish to receive article manuscripts both from universities of applied sciences and other organisations. In addition to articles, we welcome reviews and summaries concerning research, development and innovations in universities of applied sciences, as well as news and literary reviews in the field. You may also submit audiovisual content.
