Science Bench on 8 October

Science at the weekly market with the Science Bench

29.9.2021 | DIT / ECRI Public Relations

On Friday, 8 October, the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) will host the Science Bench for the second time. Professor Dr. Michelle Cummings-Koether will take a seat on the Science Bench between 9 and 11 a.m. and exchange views with the public on the topic of "Intercultural Competence as the Key to Success?".

Science does not always have to take place in the lecture hall. That's why ECRI brings science outside with the Science Bench, more precisely to the town square in Pfarrkirchen. The topic of intercultural competence in particular is an area that is becoming increasingly important in a society characterised by diversity, globalisation and digitalisation. It is an area that affects everyone and can also harbour faux pas alongside opportunities.

Prof. Dr. Cummings-Koether is an interculturalist and deals extensively with intercultural management and communication in an international environment. This includes areas such as project management and leadership skills, as well as soft skills. These are not only important at work or in international negotiations, but can also make a difference at the regulars' table at home. Interested citizens can ask Prof. Dr. Cummings-Koether directly how exactly. During a little chat on the science bench.
