START UP FOR DEVELOPMENT

START UP FOR DEVELOPMENT

Project summary:

The project is focusing on the concept of smart cities/villages and the understanding of this concept by the municipalities who are the ones implementing smart solutions in their environment. It is based on a premise that the understanding of the concept of smart cities/villages by municipalities is on a low level due to the fact that the problem is too wide, solutions even wider and there is also the lack of experts offering comprehensive solutions for municipalities. Especially those small municipalities that can not afford to have such experts in their employment.

START UP project is an adult education project focused on smart cities/villages. The concept of smart cities/villages is in principal too wide, making it difficult for the municipalities and wider public to understand and start implementing. Thus the general idea is to create a training material to train the trainers who would then work with municipalities promoting the smart cities/villages solutions and their understanding.

The overall objective of the project can be defined as development of a course for training of trainers on the issues of smart cities/villages. The overall objectives will be achieved by achieving partial goals that can be defined as:

  • curriculum development
  • methodological design of course delivery development
  • development of physical course materials
  • development of an online course

Expected results:

The long term expected result from the project realisation is the development of a new innovative course material (physical and online) for training of trainers on smart cities/villages. The long term expected result is expected to be achieved following the development and adaptation of Intellectual Outputs that are:

  • Survey of needs
  • Course curriculum
  • Course materials
  • Webinar for training of trainers
