Business culture agents

The Business Culture Agents project creates a language and cultural mediation service for the internationalizing SMEs in the Päijät-Häme region, utilizing the expertise of LAB international degree students. In language and cultural mediation, students assist SMEs in starting or expanding their international business, especially in situations requiring language skills and intercultural communication. The project promotes intercultural encounters, the internationalization and growth of SME companies and responds to a shortage of skilled employees.

The Business Culture Agents service becomes a permanent part of the LAB business services. In the long term, the exploitation of the service model will help SME companies in the region to internationalize their business activities.
