The project aims to promote the modernization, to expand the availability and to develop the internationalization of higher education in the partner countries; to promote intercultural and interpersonal exchange, the voluntary convergence with the tendencies of the development of higher education in the EU.

All partners of the consortium have a strong focus on technology and engineering and serve as regional centres for implementation of national strategies for training professionals. The problem of training professionals for the real sector of economy has emerged due to immense development of high technologies, shortening the period from development to implementation, growing technological needs of the society. As a result there exist a need for new approaches to the development of curricula sensitive and flexible to demands of companies based on innovations. This challenge is common for all regions involved in implementation of the project: EU, Russia and Asia.

To meet this challenge in the course of the project partners will:

° Identify needs, select key professions and areas of training.
° Develop and modernize curricula implementing the principles of the dual education under the guidance of European experts.
° Launch new or upgraded curricula, combining periods of study with periods of training at leading enterprises.
° Create a system of continuous professional development.
° Create communication and recourse centres at partner universities.


The main output of the project will be upgraded/developed curricula in engineering trades. It will be possible through development of methodological guidelines on professions and qualifications based on the analysis of the economic needs of three regions.

These outputs will be available to all stakeholders through the created communication and resource centres as well as the project website and through open communication of the partners that secures the reliability and high quality of the project outcomes.
