Erasmus+ programme – an opportunity for personal development

Friday, 21. june
In June, Aleksandrs Okuņevs and Kristiāns Geršebeks, laboratory assistants at the Laboratory of Laser Technologies at Rezekne Academy of Technologies (RTA), and Pāvels Narica, Dr. Phys., researcher at Physical Processes and Laser Technologies Research Center, within the Erasmus+ mobility programme visited Jade University of Applied Sciences in Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
  1. Okuņevs notes that was his first experience in Germany and his second trip abroad.

"In another country, I want to pay more attention to nuances. My focus was on treatment of waste, which is less common in Latvia. In terms of an educational space, I would say that student and school relationship was modern, open and very responsible. My meetings with the German colleagues were also sincere and welcoming. In spite of possible language barriers, in my opinion our discussions were valuable, meaningful and interesting. In professors, I observed an inexhaustible enthusiasm. I will keep not only a positive impression of the journey, but also valuable knowledge and skills in PLC programming in accordance with Industry 4.0 principles, basics of electric machinery, structure of laser elements, and design of sheet metal parts, as I used the opportunity to work in labs, attend lectures, and visit libraries," says Aleksandrs.

The Erasmus + programme gives each participant an opportunity to learn about other cultures, speak a foreign language and establish new contacts.

"The biggest benefit is realisation that I should focus more on science. Science provides tools and a powerful community for environmental research and I`d like to be a part of this community," firmly adds A.Okuņevs.
