The Litewski Square Portal Connected the Rectors of Two Universities

On June 10 this year, there was a virtual meeting between the representatives of Lublin University of Technology and the representatives of its partner university - Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VILNIUS TECH).

For this purpose, the Portal located on the Litewski Square was used.

The Portal is a concrete construction object resembling a virtual door in the shape of a circle. The installation, through cameras and a large round screen, transmits in real time via the Internet the image between Lublin and Vilnius, where the same installation is located. With its help, the residents can observe each other, greet and establish contacts.

It was in this unconventional way that the authorities of the two universities could meet and talk about mutual cooperation. Due to the fact that the Portal does not transmit sound, the conversation was conducted by phone.

The Lublin scientists emphasized that during a pandemic digital tools play an important role in shaping our lives. They also drew attention to the need for cooperation between students.
