In Memoriam: Prof. Rimantas Gatautis passed away on Saturday, March 3rd

On March 3rd, our respected cooperation partner, Prof. Rimantas Gatautis from Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania, passed away. We would like to express our sincere condolences on behalf of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts. The death of professor Rimantas Gatautis is a terrible loss and we wish you and all his friends, family and colleagues strength and endurance to continue his ideas and vision. In our fruitful cooperation, Prof. Gatautis was always the leading example and the source of inspiration we needed. With his support, we established the double degree for the EuroMPM Master programme, our PhD cooperation, and innovative projects in the field of the digital transformation. He supported our activities with the Dortmund International Research Conference and Summer School and several successful international workshops and block teaching units. Under his guidance, we established a comprehensive memorandum of understanding between our two universities. We will always keep his memory in high regards. He was a true modernizer in the digital transformation and a close friend and supporter in the European community of scientists, students and practitioners. The news came as a shock. Our thoughts are with his friends, colleagues and family in Kaunas.


European Partnership for Project and Innovation Management

The Project, supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), is a project about internationalisation.
Within this project the existing relationships to the universities in Bilbao, Leuven, Kaunas and Trondheim are to be devolped into strategic partnerships.

These partnerships are based on joint Master's programmes in the field of Project and Innovation Management and Engineering as well as the corresponding research in these subjects. The target is to strengthen these partnerships with an offer of joint modules, e.g. Summer Schools, Block Weeks, Workshops, Cross Border Projects, eLearning, Case Studies, Conferences, etc. The main focus is on processes, methods and tools in Project and Innovation Management, mainly related to Engineering, IT and Business Development.
