Project Description

The Joint Tempus Project “Knowledge Transfer Unit - From Applied Research and Technology-Entrepreneurial Know-How Exchange to Development of Interdisciplinary Curricula Modules (KTU)” aims at development of sustainable relationship between universities and economy in Ukraine. The wider objective of this project is to strengthen the PCUs in a way that will allow them to fulfill their central role as innovators in their national economies and to become a respected partner of the enterprises.
The project has the following two specific objectives:
1.) With the support of the EU partners from Austria, Hungary, Spain and Sweden, the PCUs will establish Knowledge Transfer Units and develop their capacities. This will allow them to attract enterprises by offering them specific services and technologies (rapid prototyping technology). By working jointly on pilot projects universities and enterprises will develop direct and sustainable relationships that will considerably contribute to the development of both universities and the national economy.
2.) In second line this project aims at curriculum modernization using the inputs gained from the activities of the Knowledge Transfer Units and developing of new and modernized practice oriented interdisciplinary modules which will be implemented during the project
