    November 24, 2023 - Martin Spalt and the Realschule Vaduz receive the European Innovative Teaching Award

    Today, Martin Spalt and the Realschule (secondary school) Vaduz were awarded the European Innovative Teaching Award in Brussels. They received the award for the STE(A)M education involving peer-to-peer teaching project, which has been implemented together with the partner school Campus Sint Ursula in Lier, Belgium, since 2018. You can find more information about the project here or here.

    The award recognizes successfully completed projects funded by the Erasmus+ programme. It provides an opportunity to highlight the benefits of European cooperation in education through transnational activities. Over 90 projects were honored during the event, covering a wide range of topics such as the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), robotics, virtual reality and 3D printing. As part of this, Florian Nuxoll (teacher and research associate at the University of Tübingen, Germany) gave the keynote speech on the topic of artificial intelligence and showed how important it is to teach children how to use AI from a young age.

    We are very pleased for Martin Spalt and the Realschule Vaduz  and congratulate them on their successful project!

            11 and 12 September 2023 - Heads of state of the German-speaking countries meet in Belgium

            On 11 and 12 September the King of the Belgians as host was joined by the Heads of State of Luxembourg, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein in Belgium.

            The main topic "Space" led to a very interesting exchange of experiences with astronauts from the European Space Agency (ESA). It was shown that Europe – while facing other pressing problems - will have to decide in the coming months whether it sees a perspective for itself in space travel, or whether it will miss decisive steps and run the risk of being further marginalized politically and industrially in this area.

            In his speech, Hereditary Prince Alois was also able to briefly discuss the Space Act, which is currently being dealt with by parliament, and explained that the pleasingly rapid implementation phase is mainly due to the short distances in Liechtenstein.

            On 12 September, the focus was on the circular economy and, in addition to an open exchange on this important topic, the heads of state also visited Kabelwerk EUPEN AG, which is one of the leading companies in Europe in its field and, due to its production processes, represents a concrete and illustrative example of the circular economy in practice.
