CAS in a New Transnational Project

In March 2014 the Warsaw University of Technology signed a grant agreement with the National Centre for Research and Development to conduct a project called Supporting Educational Initiatives of the Warsaw University of Technology in Teaching and Skill Improvement Training in the Area of Teleinformatics.

The project, which is addressed to WUT MSc and PhD students as well as academics, provides opportunities for maintaining transnational scientific relations between the Warsaw University of Technology and three foreign institutions of higher education, i.e. the University of Luxembourg, Polytech Nantes and the Technical University of Denmark. The following leading ICT enterprises will also be closely cooperating with the WUT: Huawei Poland, IBM Poland, Samsung Electronic Poland – the R&D Center, Systemics-Pab, Orange (TP S.A.), and the Office of Electronic Communications The main aim of the project, i.e. strengthening the didactic (including a practical mode of teaching) and scientific potential of the WUT academic community, will be achieved by implementing diversified forms: specialised courses, internships at enterprises specialising in innovative teleinformatics techniques, running regular postgraduate studies with the use of distance learning techniques, organising training sessions, organising Do It Yourself workshops, and granting targeted international research scholarships. All of the methods, innovative technological solutions and know-how to be used within the tasks of the projects will be designed in collaboration with transnational partners.

The project leader is the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology. Other WUT units collaborating within the project are the WUT Distance-Learning Centre and the Center for Advanced Studies. The latter is responsible for organising the task of Targeted International Research Scholarships. Scholarship winners will be selected via a competition. The laureates will be offered a 3-month-long study visit at one of the transnational partners.  

The time framework for the project is March 2014 – June 2015.

The project is financed by the European Union within the European Social Fund.
