COOPERATION WITH OTHER HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS

In November 2015, Apeiron expands its cooperation with institutions in Croatia by signing agreements with the North University in Varaždin and the Industrial Development Institute in Zagreb. The objective that was presented by the signatories is a joint full par-ticipation in the single European educational space. The Faculty of Business Economics of Apeiron Pan-European University and Zagreb Business School agreed that the future cooperation will promote the student mobility within the Erasmus program and strengthening of inter-institutional partnerships. The Faculty of Law in Osijek recently became a new partner of the Faculty of Law of Apeiron Pan European University.
These two faculties prioritize joint work on the opening of the doctoral school in the field of law. At the end of the year, the cooperation was established with Celje Faculty of Logistics, Maribor University. The most important point of cooperation between the these two higher education institutions is a joint participation in EU projects (Horizon 2020), as well as opening of opportunities for the establishment of a joint study on the first cycle of the business logistics programme the end result of which would be a double degree.
