The Felleshus – or pan-nordic building – is the cultural centre and event venue of the five Nordic embassies (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden). It is open to the general public and the site of exhibitions and readings, concerts, film screenings, lectures and conferences.
»Each autonomous, and yet together.« At the inauguration of the Nordic Embassies in autumn 1999 Queen Margrethe II of Denmark formulated this motto for the future cooperation of the five Nordic countries – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. This motto reflects the longstanding relationship of the Nordic countries over decades and even centuries, out of which this common building emerged as a logical development. The cooperation was initiated not out of necessity but rather out of a sense of a common heritage, common languages and shared values and convictions – a unique project worldwide.

Oskar von Miller Forum
The Oskar von Miller Forum is an educational initiative of the Bavarian construction industry.
As an international forum where people from diverse construction-related disciplines can meet and exchange ideas, the Oskar von Miller Forum contributes exciting ideas and inspiration to the education of a new generation of civil engineers, environmental engineers and architects at the Technische Universität München through its programme. Challenging lectures by high-ranking architects and engineers on current and interdisciplinary topics from construction-related fields are main elements of this programme.
The Oskar von Miller Forum considers technical expertise and social skills to lie at the heart of excellence. The ability to recognise connections, personal initiative, staying power, a sense of responsibility and specialist knowledge, these are some of the characteristics that are of central importance. Social skills, such as the ability and willingness to communicate, to respond appropriately in any given situation, and reliability in one’s dealings with others also play an important role in the cultivation of excellence.
