Last 5th November 2019, the kick-off meeting of RESONATE project- Development of Professional Courses in Sustainable Water Management, took place in Skopje (Macedonia), where UNIR participates as a member of the partnership.
The project is financed by the European Commission Programme Erasmus+ through the call ‘Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training’ (KA202). Coordinated by the Civil Engineering Institute Macedonia, the project started in October 2019 and will last for 24 months.
The project aims to provide comprehensive engineering knowledge and develop professionals’ scientific, communication and problem-solving skills through a combination of practical, hands-on courses, industry projects and theoretical foundations. During the first phase of the project, the required skills and practical knowledge will be identified. After the analysis phase, the project contemplates the design, implementation and certification of different professional courses.
A team of researchers from the School of Engineering and Technology will carry out the project at UNIR and will be responsible for the analysis of educational programmes and courses in the area of Sustainable Water Management, apart from collaborating in other project tasks.
