Project RESINT “Collaborative Reformation of Curricula on Resilience Management with Intelligent Systems in Open Source and Augmented Reality”
DURATION: 01/10/2013 – 30/09/2015 (24 months)

RESINT wants to contribute to the reform and implementing of curricula in resilience management with the collaboration of not academic partners through the elaboration and offer in an open source platform, of a model that comprehensively reflects best practices from business companies, NGOs and government in managing operational resilience across the disciplines of business continuity management, security management, post catastrophe practices and IT operations management. The collaborative approach between academic and not academic organizations will overcome the existing inadequacy of university courses, curricula and syllabuses that do not meet the needs of the world of labour from one side and the lack of professional skills and attitudes from the other. The main results of RESINT are: Structured Educational Programmes (BSc, MSc, PhD) with syllabuses and courses; Pilot modules framed in Short Courses on Resilience Management; Tools based on Augmented reality and Intelligent Computer Learning Systems (its integration) implemented; Innovative didactical methodology (Simulimpresa) applied; Training courses with internship and stage in external organizations; Dissemination; Career and placement service implemented; Agreements between Universities and Enterprises. All these results will be made available by an open source WEB Site managed by the Project Network and freely disseminating Project Results. Once the virtual network will be created, it will attract new users because it provides an innovative method for delivering educational/training content for resilience management. Based upon the issues and resources identified in the study previous to this project proposal, RESINT consortium may wish to consider the following areas of potential future work: Address the platform issue; Build Continuing Education to support the online learning; Developing further projects in this field particularly as it concerns collaborative educational network governance.

Seventh Framework Programme - THEME [INCO.2013-1.6 INCO.2013-1.6 - Southern Asian countries Southern Asian countries]
Project CASCADE " Collaborative Action towards Societal Challenges through Awareness, Development, and Education "
APPLICANT: University of Salford
DURATION: 01/10/2013 (18 months)

CASCADE aims to provide the foundation for a future INCONET programme targeting South Asian Countries, which will promote bi-regional coordination of Science &Technology (S&T) cooperation, including priority setting and definition of S&T cooperation policies. The objectives of CASCADE, as an 18-month supporting action, are to: compile a regional position paper that identifies global challenges and research priorities; map and develop an inventory of national and regional stakeholders related to global challenges; and, raise awareness on research & innovation priorities for fostering cooperation and towards building mutual understanding on how to address
common global societal challenges. CASCADE targets & has the participation of all South Asian countries specified in the Call: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The project comprises five work packages (WP). WP1 will, coordinate the delivery of project outputs, ensure achievement of anticipated outcomes, and develop and manage project infrastructure. WP2 will produce national (Afghanistan, Bangladesh,Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) and regional (Southern Asia) position papers providing a consensus on the key societal challenges in the region linked to Horizon2020. These papers will be used as the basis for WP3: the identification and mapping of key national and regional stakeholders that can
influence and address these societal challenges. WP4 will engage these key stakeholders, raise awareness of the potential for EU-Southern Asia cooperation, and stimulate their participation in Horizon 2020. WP5 will use the position papers from WP2 and stakeholder maps from WP3 to compile a policy brief with recommendations to the European Commission on how to promote bi-lateral cooperation with Southern Asia with a view to tackling key societal challenges of mutual interest. WP5 will also promote Southern Asian contacts among major European stakeholders.

Project TEMPUS CHTMBAL - Network for Post Graduate Masters and PhD in Cultural Heritage and Tourism Management in Balkan Countries;  
APPLICANT : University "G.d'Annunzio" Chieti-Pescara
PARTNER: University of Bologna SCIENTIFIC RESPONSIBLE: Prof. Massimo Bianchi
DURATION: 15/10/2011 - 14/10/2014 (36 months)

The projects aims at creating a university network for Post Graduate Masters in Cultural Heritage and Tourism Management, starting also two Pilot Master Courses, one in Albania and one in Kosovo. Local institutions in the PC have in fact expressed their need to enhance cultural tourism in their countries as important element of cultural and sustainable economic growth; a result this also arises the demand for a professional figure with the skills and the proficiencies needed to work in this field. This aims will be pursued by reviewing and reforming the actual curricula of the PC with the Bologna Process guidelines and creating and implementing two master pilot courses (in Shkodra and Pritzen Universities). During the project many agreements with local institutions and enterprises will be established, in order to create stages where the students can apply what they have learnt and help them enter in the labour market. The project will also provide teachers and administration training thanks to the experience and the shared knowledge of the EU partners. The number of EU Partners is dued to the fact that they cover all the interdisciplinary aspects of the project. Teachers and students will also take advantage of short periods of study and stages in the EU partner countries. There will be set quality assurance standards for the master degree. The master pilot will be evaluated and then improved and implemented in the other PC, together with tutoring work to help the sustainability of the project. The dissemination activities will include opening conferences, short term and medium term workshops on partial results, a website and publications on the final results. The publications will work as guideline for cultural tourism development, giving the PC the cultural bases for heritage management policies and will contribute to the development of a sustainable tourism-based economy.

APPLICANT: University of Bologna – Department of Management
DURATION: 15/10/2010 - 14/10/2013 (36 months)

The project aims to develop and implement a Joint Doctoral Programme in Entrepreneurship and SME Management as a third cycle at Western Balkan (WB) universities. This Programme is among the first programmes organized as a 3rd cycle in accordance with Bologna Process documents and key EHEA/ERA goals and it is a new way of gaining doctoral degree in co-beneficiaries from WB. The main aim of this Doctoral Programme is to increase the level of scientific approach and entrepreneurial culture in WB countries, leading to the enhanced connectivity with the labour market. The Programme will emphasize the importance of the research and its link with the higher education on the doctoral level through stakeholders’ involvement in curriculum development and in supporting the research activities. Doctoral programme will start as a Joint multi-degree programme of five universities from MK,AL and XK. Representatives of the academic staff from all co-beneficiaries from WB will be involved in all activities of the project and also,in implementation of the Programme. Several doctoral students will use the opportunity to have short study visits to EU Universities. Representatives of the Administrative staff from all WB will be trained and prepared for administrative logistics of doctoral programmes. Doctoral programme technical capacities of the WB co-beneficiaries will be established, improved and upgraded. The Quality assurance standards for doctoral Programme will be established and Quality assurance of the entire Project will be provided. Dissemination activities and conferences together with the web site of the Programme will contribute for many universities not included in the project to become more familiar with this new approach. Implementation of a Distance Learning mode as a cost effective way of offering lectures and the establishment of a Body for communication among Universities and business community on permanent basis, will ensure the sustainability of this programme.
