IRUAS (International Relations - Universities of Applied Sciences) was formed in 2008. It is a network organisation for all employees at Swiss universities of applied sciences and arts in the area of international issues and mobility.
Its activities are coordinated by the IRUAS Committee, which is composed of up to two people from each university of applied science. The IRUAS Committee is headed by Sandra Somer (Hochschule Luzern) and Maude Freléchoux of the Haute École spécialisée de la Suisse occidentale (HES-SO). IRUAS forms ad-hoc working groups on current topics, delegates people who represent the international offices of universities of applied sciences and arts on various bodies (e.g. Group Accompagnement Erasmus, or GrAcE2 for short), organises a regular IRUAS networking event on current important topics and ensures the good exchange of information among universities of applied sciences and arts.
