Tempus Project No. 544498-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-SE-TEMPUS-JPHES

 Interregional Network for Innovative Development of Ecosystems Technosphere Based on Micro- and Nanoobject Technologies

The goal of the project was to create a single comprehensive vertically integrated system of innovative development of ecosystems technosphere (studying – research – production – maintenance - utilization) while achieving synergetic effect by using the results of Tempus projects in the field of green technologies and innovations support: UNI4INNO (Innovations support), GREENCO (Green Computing), REGENLAW (Energy and Environmental Law) etc.

The goal of the project could be achieved with the objectives:

The first of wider project objectives was to establish the international network Centers of Innovations in ecosystems technosphere (CIDECS) in UA and BY (3 UA / 3 BY) and integration with IITN and IP Master structures. The functions of each center included administrative, financial and technical supporting of eco-innovative projects, training activities for wide target groups (research, education, production companies).

The second objective included development of the international web platform CIDECS for collaboration between companies in development and commercialization of programs on eco-innovations. Also it included integration of this platform with the networks of Tempus projects in the field of green technologies and innovation support (IITN, IP Master) in order to achieve synergetic effect on the development of a comprehensive integrated  system of inter-regional development of eco-innovations.

The third project objective was to create the base for training a new generation of engineering/research staff for eco-engineering. The objective of development the new integrated Master program in Micro- and Nanotechnology in ecosystems technosphere was to provide top-quality multidisciplinary education. That program was attended 6 basic modules (BM1 – BM6) and gain a total of 90 credits (which includes pre-diploma internship/practice period of 12 credits). In-service training program (4 modules) in the area of innovative micro/nanotech eco-engineering were developed

The fourth objective focused on in-service training program (4 modules) in the area of
innovative micro/nanotech eco-engineering providing education for external stakeholders

Project results:

During the project period the following outcomes planned in the project application have been achieved:

1. Establishment of international network of Centers of Innovations in ecosystems technosphere (CIDECS) in UA and BY (3 UA / 3 BY) has been realised.

2. Development of the international web platform CIDECS for collaboration between companies in development and commercialization of programs on eco-innovations has successfully completed.

3. The curriculum for the new integrated Master program in Micro- and Nanotechnology in ecosystems technosphere has been developed. The developed courses help to provide the top-quality multidisciplinary education and single comprehensive vertically integrated system of innovative development of ecosystems technosphere (studying – research – production – maintenance - utilization) while achieving synergetic effect by using the results of Tempus projects in the field of green technologies and innovations support: UNI4INNO (Innovations support), GREENCO (Green Computing), REGENLAW (Energy and Environmental Law).

4. The Master's programme in Micro- and Nanotechnology in ecosystems technosphere consists of two semesters of course work, pre-diploma internship/practice , and master thesis:

  • - Fundamental basics of micro- and nanomaterials production (5 ECTS);
  • - Micro- and Nanosystems formation principles(5 ECTS);
  • - Metrology and standardization (5 ECTS);
  • - Micro- and Nanotechnologies for production, maintenance and waste recovery(5 ECTS);
  • - Certification of micro- and nanomaterials and structures (5 ECTS);
  • - Micro- and Nanotechnologies in ecosystems (5 ECTS);
  • - Pre-diploma internship/practice (12 ECTS);
  • - Master thesis (18 ECTS).

The teaching materials for the developed courses:

Methodical directions for Laboratory works

Manual for practical classes in SPRAYING PARAMETERS OPTIMIZATION

Lecture instructions in Technology of Enginearing (in III Parts) (1)

Lecture instructions in Technology of Enginearing (in III Parts)

5. The teaching materials for the developed courses have been developed in cooperation between all project partners and published for sustainable use at partner universities.

6. The in-service training programmes have been developed for providing educational cervices by CIDECS centers.

7. A wide range of services have been launched at Cidecs centers: including administrative, financial and technical supporting of eco-innovative projects / e-commerce in eco-innovation projects (with the help of Web platform SIDECS service) / training of engineering and research staff for wide target groups (research, education, production, trade companies) in technosphere objects production (energetics, machinebuilding, metallurgy), technosphere objects maintenance (production equipment, transport), technosphere objects waste recovery.

8. The project achievements have been disseminated via media (TV, newspapers), social media, website, universities websites, local dissemination events and international conferences.

9. The project team have developed and are continuously updating the project web-platform CIDECS – https://nado.tech/  and website cidecs.net with all relevant materials. The project platform includes a special password-protected area where all materials related to developed courses have been uploaded by all PC administrators. The project results will be presented on the website, including the information on developed courses, published thesis works and reports.

10. In addition, designed and developed dissemination materials: project logo, leaflets in Russian and English, templates for press -releases and event advertisement booklets will be disseminated through the developed partners network.
