ITACA – Innovative training center to support a 3rd cycle advanced education course to face environmental emergency in Azerbaijan

Project Details

Description


ITACA project deals with the design and building up of a Training Center, involving EU and local institutions, as well as enterprises active in the field of environmental impact of oil and gas production, to contribute to the strengthening of the relationship between university and industry, by jointly training graduated students to be employed in the field.
The Training Center will design and develop a one year postgraduate 3rd cycle course managed in collaboration between industry and academia. The current HE system in the Country does not include a 3rd cycle of education different from PhD courses, while in EU it has been proved successful, especially in the field of ecology and environmental sciences, as well as engineering. The introduction of this new type of course, constituting a bridge between Universities and industries, could contribute to solving the emerging issues in the field of environmental remediation in the Country. An innovative teaching methodology will be applied, based on EU experiences, thus contributing to the modernization of local HE system.
