Project objectives (maximum 300 words)



The project aims to create a joint study platform for students of composition and performance. The study program will be organized to enable and encourage intensive cooperation and interaction between the students and the departments within the institutions and between the partner academies.

The masters programme aims to provide up-to-date broad-based study of music in the European educational field. Transdisciplinary approach will be one of the centre-points of the programme: the students will be offered an opportunity of creating cooperative projects in the fields of contemporary dance, theatre etc.

The programme will create possibilities for the students for presenting their artistic projects in cooperation with new music festivals and in new performing venues. Considering that the formats of music performance and broadcasting have changed, music technology and new media form an important part of the curriculum as means of creating, presenting and promoting the artistic projects. The programme aims to integrate new technological means into the pedagogical process. This will result in increasing the availability of music, reaching to an increasing number of beneficiaries and discovering and testing new audience target groups.

The joint curriculum will enable sharing the professional competence of contemporary music education of the partner institutions, with formal learning, artistic, creative and intercultural initiatives bearing a strong impact both on local/national level and on the European cultural landscape. It will be an excellent possibility to unite national expertise and competence to create an innovative high-level and broad-based joint curriculum.

The project aims at the development of a Master joint program in Water Reuse and Desalination Engineering (WaRDE) that gives response to a need in present economy of well-educated professionals in the water sector by identifying the common ground topics and fundamental subjects required to fit the expected competencies (defined by the partners in cooperation with the professional sector).

Definition of an innovative program of sustainable approach for safe water supply, it will promote a transnational environment considering operational, tactical and strategic issues from an integrated perspective instead of a compartmentalized perspective.

Define and operate successfully with one set of entry criteria, application forms and admission procedures.

Work for a joint diploma award, according to local regulations and procedures.


State of play of main deliverables/outputs of the project (maximum 300 words)



At present the major achievements have been:

Curriculum definition document: establishing the modules, content and description according to a somewhat standardized ECTS description. The document also includes a state of the art analysis regarding the education in Europe within the field. The study demonstrates the innovative character of the proposed programme. The consortium, after analyzing the resulting curriculum decided to change the name of the programme from that one of the project. The title for the resulting programme will be: DATWATER: Desalination and Advanced Water Technologies.

Academic procedures and guidelines document: A fully developed document that establishes all the roles and obligations of each partner and the interplay within the consortium and the future execution of the joint programme. This document also establishes common procedures for fees, student admission, enrolment, etc.

Dissemination: A website has been created (www.datwater.eu) and a paper was presented at the SEFI conference within the 1st World Engineering Education flash week, held in Lisboa.

Innovative aspects in education and training and good practices (maximum 300 words)



The use of Virtual Campuses and ICT tools is already well established among partners and all this will be inherited for the teaching and learning activities for this course.

One of the aspects the consortium is worried about is the incorporation of a good and excellent network of companies that ensure the incorporation of students into the labour market yet during the last semester of their studies.

Also as considered good practice, there is the point of student relocation and integration within the corresponding partner university. The student services and attentions during its preparation for travelling, and upon arrival are of primary importance.

Challenges ahead (maximum 300 words)



For this second year, the main concerns of the consortium are:

Definition of a business plan for ensuring the sustainable funding. Companies and organizations should be involved as programme supporters and sponsors. This should provide funds to support teaching/student mobility.

Also, private sponsoring to support practicum activities and to provide with scholarships to improve accessibility for economically disadvantaged students.

Project objectives (maximum 300 words)



Diversification of doctoral career options, curricula of academic entrepreneurship and highly specialised science-based innovations are promoted and on the increase in Europe. New innovations are expected to emerge in knowledge intensive fields, where lack of business competence is curbing the interest of postgraduate and doctoral students to commercialise their innovations by starting a business or realising it in an existing firm. Knowledge intensive business is global and requires work within and development of transnational networks and liaisons. Still transnational and interdisciplinary training programmes for PhDs in business competence are scarce.

The project seeks to fulfil the above task by developing a transnational joint MBA programme for doctoral students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics – at development stage focus is in bio), which combined to the earlier studies taken by the students will constitute a PhD+MBA entity, an entirely new and innovative training programme in European level. Preliminary name of the programme is at development stage “MBA4PhD”. The envisaged impact or the programme are enhanced understanding of business competence, business start-up and commercialization activities among PhDs, which will give the PhDs more employment opportunities and enable the transfer of their knowledge and value creation to the society.

Key development activities in the Erasmus project are benchmark research, module development, testing the selected modules via pilot trainings, evaluation of the pilots, and validation of the programme. The partners will adopt the programme to ensure that it forms an integral part of the academic curricula. Long term aim is to enable doctoral students and researchers across Europe to access learning opportunities. Therefore, the transnational elements of the MBA programme will enable the contextualizing of the materials for use in different sectors and business environments and the programme will be disseminated through university networks in Europe.

Innovative aspects in education and training and good practices (maximum 300 words)



The project will produce in LLP countries the first and highly integrated transnational and multidisciplinary joint MBA programme for doctoral students, which together with the previous studies of the participants will constitute a PhD+MBA entity. The main innovation of the project is the combination of doctoral science studies with business studies thus to achieve better business understanding and skills, entrepreneurial qualifications, and employability of the participants in science-based enterprises – either started by them or already existing. The programme aims at bringing the BIO researchers closer to the practical field.

Such a programme integrating science studies with business competence studies are globally scare if any, and the proposed programme is unique in Europe (see e.g. www.find-mba.com database that is supported by results of inquiry of the field). In addition, the methodology of the programme is innovative since it provides the target group, PhDs, with needed business skills in a compact, tailored and contextualised form that enable parallel studying, which helps the participants to develop their business idea along with their scientific studies or pursue a career in existing small and large business transferring the knowledge into business and society. This is achieved by usage of ICT-based learning tools, tailored contents (e.g. practical learning methods, involving real life cases in the field) and efficient facilitation.

In the project phase the focus will be on STEM (BIO). The focus on BIO in the project is justified, because the field is the breeding ground of new break-through innovations and solutions and considered as the engine of European economy. In addition, according the previous inquires, this target groups has expressed clear interest towards business studies.

Challenges ahead (maximum 300 words)



Consortium does not see major obstacles in the development and implementation of the future coming MBA programme, or the execution of the project. There are, however, some issues common to this type of international development projects that our project will also pay special attention to in order to ensure the success of the project and its final output, the MBA programme:

Objective of our project is to produce an entirely new MBA programme constituting of several modules. Major part of the development process involves formulation of the suitable and joint philosophy, approach and learning model and less attention at this point can be given to production of large scale teaching / learning materials since the EU-funding is limited (and is most likely usually not used to produce large scale programmes as ours). As planned, consortium will produce teaching / learning materials and cases for pilot trainings. Rest of the materials (other than pilots, not included in the project plan) are to be produced outside this development project in respective institutions, but jointly. In all, consortium is confident with the plan and does not see any problems in the design and launch of the programme.

Consortium recognises student and staff mobility as an important development area in EU and works towards securing needed mobility in the MBA programme. Mobility elements are necessary in transnational programme, even though usage of ICT and distant learning opportunities are in key role. Consortium will need to actively seek mobility funding for the doctoral students. Searching for funding is started during the life-time of this development project.

As the programme will be transnational, its success lies much on the smooth co-operation of the partners. The consortium is working towards securing shared agendas and objectives among project partners. No major problems are foreseen at this moment.

Innovative aspects in education and training and good practices (maximum 300 words)



Numerous high level international conventions, statements highlight the right of all type of migrant’s for access to appropriate health care/ health assistance that is prepared to address their special need. Herby we list some examples.

The 8th Conference of European Health Ministers - People on the Move: Human Rights and Challenges for Health Care - states: As health issues concern all people on the move, regardless of age, gender and cultural diversity, when designing health policies, governments should take into account the cultural (including religious), social and economic diversity of these people;

Article 3 of the Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine (ETS 164), refers to the need to take appropriate measures to provide equitable access to health care of appropriate quality;

The European Convention on the Legal Status of Migrant Workers (ETS 093), Article 19, requires that “Each Contracting Party undertakes to grant within its territory, to migrant workers and members of their families who are lawfully present on its territory, social and medical assistance on the same basis as nationals”.

Several Recommendations of the Committee of Ministers exist to ensure more comprehensive protection, notably Recommendation Rec (2006)18 on health services in a multicultural society, Recommendation Rec (2006)10 on better access to health care for Roma and Travelers in Europe.

Well-managed migrants’ health measures, including public health, promote the well-being of all and can facilitate the integration and participation of migrants within the host countries by promoting inclusion and understanding, contributing to social cohesion and enhanced development;

In spite of all these well articulated statements and arguments at present there is serious shortage of comprehensive training programs addressing this continuously increasing need with human resource capacity building in the in the EU.

Project objectives (maximum 300 words)



A consortium of eight European partner universities is working towards a three year Bachelor program to introduce a completely new and unique profession in the field of Healthy Ageing:

The Physical Activity and Lifestyle Counsellor (PALC)

This professional will specialize in the development and implementation of evidence-based lifestyle counselling interventions. The PALC is an expert in the fields of Health Enhancing Physical Activity, One-on-One-Counselling and Nutrition. These skills enable the PALC to not only detect disease, but to fight the very basic reason of typical western society`s health issues such as adiposity, cardiovascular diseases, and other illnesses.

An unhealthy lifestyle

Over 4,3 million people in Europe die every year of cardio vascular diseases. The epidemiologic numbers of other chronic diseases are also inconceivably. Obesity, Impaired Glucose Tolerance and Diabetes, COPD, high cholesterol and hypertension are factors which evoke a lot of grief and costs to society due cure, care and loss of productivity of labor. Unhealthy lifestyle is the main origin of problems. In order to make people aware of their lifestyle and to help them to change, custom fit physical activity programs and nutritional advices are not sufficient. To secure long-term effects, the PALC professional is able to provide counselling, which is supposed to cause permanent and vital changes in the people`s behavior. The PALC operates in the areas of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention. The main focus is on evidence based interventions within physical activity and behavioral change.

Curriculum


Important features: the exchange of knowledge and talent, cross-border mobility of staff and students.  Next to the development of professional competences, special attention will be given to project management, research methods and study- and career guidance. The PALC student has an international orientation, an entrepreneurial mindset and is looking forward to the challenge of doing parts of the study abroad.
