Every summer, students from all over the world gather under the banner “Data Science for Everyone!” in Kempten to prepare professionally for producing academic work and final degree theses.
Our international project server offers students working on projects an optimum infrastructure for collaborating with international partners.
We have teamed up with international partners to develop a concept for networked online teaching, and are working on dovetailing module components and streaming videos of presentations.
In various expert groups, we work together with international partners to drive forward interdisciplinary research in different fields.
The Institute for Internationalisation (ifi) represents a milestone in the process of internalisation pursued by Kempten University of Applied Sciences. The interdisciplinary and cross-faculty research projects and activities we pursue make us the central point of call and assistance for all university stakeholders interested in international themes.
Our graduating students face numerous fresh challenges in the globalised world. Networking with our international partners in research and teaching – for example in joint student projects or research projects – is therefore a key concern.
Matching the requirements of business and industry and collaborating closely in this respect also belong to our main priorities. Representatives of internationally focused companies support us in our international advisory board and facilitate rigorous interaction between university learning and business practice.
We offer international lecturers attending our university a workplace in the ifi office. Please contact us well in advance to reserve it for your guest’s visit.

We perceive international networking as a huge opportunity. Our summer and winter schools offer international students a chance to get to know our university and the local region, engage with a current topic and make many new friends. This is a great springboard for spending a semester abroad with us further down the line. We offer our own students in Kempten to join in and work in these international, interdisciplinary groups and get to know not just other cultures but also a variety of different approaches. It’s a wonderful opportunity to gain an initial insight into international collaboration prior to perhaps also deciding to study abroad for a while.
Our members invest their expertise into three different specialist groups on interdisciplinary topics. In addition, they provide assistance in certain projects in relevant fields. Colleagues with international interests are warmly invited to become members of our network and benefit from the wide range of experience and contacts. Please contact ifi(at)hs-kempten.de if you would like us to send you an application form.
