In November, 2017, representatives from HAMK university of Finland and Fevale of Brazil visited VIA University College to sign a new resolution for the existing partnership called the Beyond Alliance. 
The Beyond Alliance has been developing for some time. But a visit in Denmark in November, 2017, by representatives from HAMK and Fevale, took the partnership a big step further, explains VIAs vice president Peter Friese.

“VIA has a decade-long partnership with HAMK. And through our Finnish partner, we have seen a growing cooperation with Fevale. Our recent meeting here at VIA resulted in more concrete initiatives for the benefit of all three institutions,” Peter Friese explains.

The idea behind the Beyond alliance is to cooperate in ways in which 1 + 1 + 1 equals more than 3.  

“In a globalized world, we want to go beyond what each partner can do alone,” says Peter Friese.

The partnership includes cooperation on student and staff mobility, summer schools, research as well as joint courses for further education. 

"However, the partnership welcomes ideas from students and staff for further initiatives at the three institutions," VIAs vice president says.
