Internship in Berlin

Valentyna Kondratenko
I never expected to have an internship in Germany since my knowledge of German language as well as legislation are near zero. Although during my studies at VU I started to research such an interesting area as blockchain technology. So I had to contact to a bunch of specialists keen on this topic to conduct my research. Thus I was lucky to contact to the organization which accepted me as an intern.
My application for the voluntary traineeship went smoosly as long as I abided necessary deadlines and requirements.
To the point of traineeship which I started in June at <blockchain.lawyer> it was really interesting and explorative. The receiving organization is based in Berlin, hence I was in the epicenter of innovative startups rise. I got opportunity to visit numerous meetups within topic I am interested in, find new contacts, finally have a look on various organizational metters.
My receiving organization mainly concerns on blockchain stuff as well as legal tech area. I was involved into so called Advocacy Group for blockchain in Germany <bundesblock.de>, for which I was exploring pilot blockchain projects undertaken by various governments. In the nearest future the mentioned  Advocacy Group will present consolidated report to German Government.
Also I was performing tasks focused on research within internal activity of the law firm. The final but not less important thing about my experience at  <blockchain.lawyer> is that my supervisor acted as a core organizer of <swisslegal.tech> Conference and Hackathon where I participated in the beginning of October in Zurich. The event gathered participants from at least 15 countries who shared there experience about industralization and law automation, blockchain implications, e-government etc.
No doubts this experience is valuable for my professional weight. It allows me to watch on my potential career from different angles.
Advice for other students: be specific with their research  and area where they are looking for placement :-)

        Internship in Italian National Research Council

        Odeta Taujanskaitė

        After my Master’s graduation (Molecular Biology and Biotechnology) I have spent the Erasmus+ traineeship in Trieste (Italy) for 3 month. I was doing my practice in Italian National Research Council, Institute of Materials. My traineeship was focused on bacteria strand identification with Raman spectroscopy.

        During traineeship I had an opportunity to work with biotechnological tools. Also I had a chance to see how scientists work with their projects and students on the topics for final thesis. I had very friendly collaborative colleagues and professors. I noticed that Italians are very friendly, talkative, helpful and nice people. Also I was traveling a lot and I saw how wonderful country is it. I had a chance to feel hot weather (45  ͦC), swimming in Adriatic, Tyrrhenian seas, visit the other cities and countries around Trieste.

        Summing up, I want to say that every practice, journey and different culture give an invaluable experience which helps in the future career and whole life. Now I feel more self-confident, independent and have a passion to travel. With my positive and open-minded view I am trying to encourage others to take an Erasmus program opportunity and go to another county to improve yourself.

            45-ASIS KTU GARBĖS DAKTARAS – PASAULIO EKONOMIKOS FORUMO STEIGĖJAS KLAUSAS SCHWABAS

            Spalio 13 d. Kauno technologijos universiteto garbės daktaro regalijos bus įteiktos profesoriui Klausui Schwabui, iškiliam vokiečių ekonomistui ir inžinieriui, Pasaulio ekonomikos forumo įkūrėjui ir vadovui.

            Universiteto garbės daktaro vardas profesoriui Klausui Schwabui bus suteiktas už ekonomikos žinių, pažangių koncepcijų plėtros bei socialinės entreprenerystės skatinimą, paramą jaunam verslui ir indėlį plėtojant ketvirtosios pramonės revoliucijos koncepciją.

            Profesorius taip pat buvo pirmasis, pradėjęs vystyti privačios-viešos partnerystės, socialinio verslumo, kompleksinio suinteresuotų grupių požiūrio bei kitas koncepcijas.

            K. Schwabo ryšiai su Lietuva prasidėjo 1990 metais, kai Lietuva buvo pakviesta dalyvauti Pasaulio ekonomikos forumo renginyje Davose. Jo nuopelnai Lietuvai buvo įvertinti 2009 metais, kuomet tuometinis Lietuvos Respublikos prezidentas Valdas Adamkus jam suteikė ordino „Už nuopelnus Lietuvai“ Komandoro kryžių.

            Jaunųjų entreprenerių ir lyderių rėmėjas

            Profesorius K. Schwabas yra Pasaulio ekonomikos forumo, tarptautinės organizacijos, inicijuojančios viešojo ir privataus sektorių bendradarbiavimą, steigėjas ir valdybos pirmininkas.

            K. Schwabas Pasaulio ekonomikos forumą įkūrė 1971-iais, tais pačiais metais, kai buvo išleista jo knyga „Moderne Unternehmensführung im Maschinenbau“ (angl.„Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering“). Jo vadovaujamas forumas paskatino sutaikinamuosius procesus įvairiose pasaulio dalyse bei daugybės bendradarbiavimo ir tarptautinių iniciatyvų atsiradimą.

            1998 m. su savo žmona Hilde K. Schwabas sukūrė „Schwab“ socialinio verslumo fondą, kurio tikslas – nustatyti, pripažinti ir skleisti socialinės verslininkystės iniciatyvas. Fondas remia socialinių entreprenerių (angl. social entrepreneurs) tinklą, kurį sudaro daugiau kaip 350 verslo atstovų iš viso pasaulio.

            2004 m., gavęs Dan Davido premiją, K. Schwabas įkūrė naują fondą – „Jaunųjų pasaulio lyderių forumą“ (angl. „Forum of Young Global Leaders“), skirtą jaunesniems nei 40 metų asmenims. Po septynerių metų, 2011 m., jis įkūrė pokyčių iniciatorių bendruomenę (angl. „Global Shapers Community“), skirtą potencialiems lyderiams nuo 20 iki 30 metų amžiaus. Šių dviejų fondų pagrindinis tikslas – integruoti jaunus žmones, kaip stiprų ateities balsą, į globalų sprendimų priėmimo procesą ir skatinti jų dalyvavimą konkrečiuose projektuose, kuriuose sprendžiamos socialinės problemos. Lietuvoje sėkmingai veikia aktyvaus, profesionalaus jaunimo padalinys “WEF Global Shapers Vilnius”.

            Vienas jauniausių profesorių universiteto istorijoje

            45-asis KTU garbės daktaras taip pat paskatino įsteigti globalų tarybų darbotvarkių tinklą (angl. „Network of Global Agenda Councils“), susidedantį iš daugiau kaip 1500 svarbiausių ekspertų, kurie sprendžia pasaulinius, regioninius ir su pramonės plėtra susijusius uždavinius.

            1993-1995 m. K. Schwabas buvo Jungtinių Tautų (JT) aukšto lygio patariamosios tarybos darnios plėtros klausimais narys, o 1996-1998 m. – JT Vystymosi planavimo komiteto vicepirmininkas.

            Profesorius K. Schwabas ekonomikos mokslų daktaro laipsnį (summa cum laude) įgijo Freiburgo universitete Vokietijoje, o inžinerijos mokslų daktaro laipsnį – Šveicarijos federaliniame technologijos institute. 1972 m. jis tapo vienu iš jauniausių profesorių Ženevos universiteto istorijoje. K. Schwabas per savo mokslinę karjerą yra gavęs daugybę tarptautinių ir nacionalinių apdovanojimų.

            Naujasis KTU garbės daktaras taip pat domisi akademiniais, kultūriniais ir viešojo sektoriaus klausimais. K. Schwabas yra entuziastingas plaukikas, taip pat praktikuojantis kalnų sportą ir dalyvaujantis „Engadin“ slidinėjimo maratone.

            Spalio 12 d. K. Schwabas lankysis ir skaitys pranešimą „Metų ekonomikos forume 2017“ Vilniuje, kur vyks diskusijos apie ketvirtosios pramonės revoliucijos kuriamus iššūkius ir teikiamus privalumus, o spalio 13 d. nuo 14.00 iki 14.45 val. KTU Kultūros ir renginių centro (Laisvės al. 13) Didžiojoje salėje skaitys atvirą paskaitą „Leadership Challenges in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution“ (liet. „Lyderystės iššūkiai ketvirtosios pramonės revoliucijos amžiuje“).
