Erasmus+ MILETUS – Mobility Capacity Building in Higher Education in Ukraine and Serbia

Summary

By creating the needed governance on a ministerial and institutional level, MILETUS achieves the improvement of Master graduates’ employability chances in companies working internationally and the quality enhancement of PhD students’ research, and thus their contribution to high quality research in the partner countries.To build students mobility capacity, governance of ministries responsible for HE will be improved and functions of existing International Relations Offices at HEIs will be extended or founded newly. Teaching staff will be methodologically prepared for supervision of MR and necessary learning materials will be prepared. Focus on students with disabilities will open up mobility learning experiences to a wider range of students, primarily as a result of tapping into potential of virtual mobility.These virtual MRs for Master students will include tasks that enable mobilizing and developing skills that allow for working in international geographically dispersed teams, under consideration of competences expected of graduates by employers. Deployment of mobility programs addresses the need for broadening collaboration research circle for PhD students ultimately improving the quality of their research.

Erasmus+ Mobility Programme

Erasmus+ Mobility Programme refers to the mobility of students, teaching and administrative staff between higher educational institutions of EU and non-EU partner countries.

Implementation of the Study Program – Digital Broadcasting and Broadband Technologies

Summary

Capacity-Building projects in the field of Higher Education
This project and its foreseen results will contribute to capacity building in three Partner Countries involved (Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia), and thus to the objectives of the Capacity Building in Higher Education action, through the establishment of a Master programme for academic and vocational studies in the field of Digital Broadcasting and Broadband Technology.

The basic role of SINGIDUNUM is to prepare master study programme in the field of modern broadcasting technologies. It should be emphasized that development and further improvement of any telecommunications system or building a new system require urgent careful planning, testing of technical, economic and general social consequences. Therefore, the observed master program must include all of these aspects of the application of modern broadcasting technologies. Broadcast technologies are continually evolving and converging with other information and media distribution formats. This course aims to capitalise and maintain the domestic expertise in this area, along with the requirement to continually evolve the delivery of technology in this rapidly changing area. The course will be design both to prepare recent graduates for a technical/commercial career and to provide a route to the specialisation needed for a research career. It should also be suitable for past graduates of internet and communications related courses who may have worked for several years and wish to update their knowledge. The study programme will be designe to enable students to acquire and develop a thorough technical and theoretical teaching. Alongside the development of technical and analytical skills, students will also develop team and professional development skills through group work, peer review and reflective evaluation and consideration of legal and ethical issues.

 

ICT COST Action IC1303

Summary

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is an area of research based on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), medical research, and sociological research. AAL is based on the notion that technology and science can provide improvements in the quality of life for people in their homes, and that it can reduce the financial burden on the budgets of European healthcare providers. The concept of Enhanced Living Environments (ELE) refers to the AAL area that is more related with the Information and Communication Technologies.

To design, plan, deploy and operate, an AAL system often comprehends the integration of several scientific areas. The Architectures, Algorithms and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (AAPELE) COST Action addresses the issues of defining software, hardware and service architectures for AAL, on studying and creating more efficient algorithms for AAL, particularly those related to the processing of large amounts of data and of biosignals in lossy environments, and on the research of protocols for AAL or, with more detail, on studying communication and data transmission protocols for AAL.

This Action aims to promote interdisciplinary research on AAL, through the creation of a research and development community of scientists and entrepreneurs, focusing on AAL algorithms, architectures and platforms, having in view the advance of science in this area and the development of new and innovative solutions.
