The project is organized in such a way that a large number of teaching staff (over 40), students (over 100) and resource persons (over 30) from public and private organizations will be physically meeting each other at the universities of the consortia.
Planed 15 activities are covering most of the objectives in the Eurasia Call to various degrees. The project activities are carried out through 8 project meetings, short and long term student mobility programs to Norway, involvement of external partners through workshops and student mobility placements and between partners as well as divided work carried out at partner universities.
Planned activities should bring following results:
- Eight project meetings with 20-30 participants representing 10 universities in Dnepropetrovsk, Shymkent, Kiev, Oslo, Dushanbe, Khojand, Bishkek, Minsk, Cherkassy, Chisinau (Three meetings are combined for rational use of resources).
- 10 one-day workshops open for external partners and students in 10 cities, back-to-back with project meetings.
- Four batches of 20 master students with three weeks intensive courses in NMBU
- 11 master students from Ukraine in Norway for one year research fellowships (funded with Erasmus+)
- Six master students from Norway to Ukraine for five months for research fellowship evaluating project results, (funded with Erasmus+)
- Six staff members from Ukraine to Norway and six from Norway to Ukraine for one week training courses (funded with Erasmus+)
- One textbook on water management & treatment produced, translated into seven languages and distributed to at least 1000 recipients. The textbook will be the expanded version of the textbook produced under the phase-I, to include (among others) biological treatment methods.
- Handbooks/Guidelines on graduate supervision, entrepreneurship/innovation produced, translated and printed.
