Erasmus + is the European Union program in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport, for the period 2021-2027.
After the success achieved by the Program in the 2014-2020 period, Erasmus + increases the opportunities for a greater number of participants. Within the Program, some key issues such as social inclusion, environmental sustainability, the transition to digital and the promotion of participation in democratic life by the younger generations take on central roles. Spending time in another country to study, learn and work should become the norm, as should being able to speak two languages in addition to one's mother tongue.
For the period 2021/2027 Erasmus + has a financial budget of € 28.4 billion, which represents an amount almost double compared to the previous program (2014-2020).

Erasmus Mundus Design Measures
 

EESIC Engineering for Environmental Sustainability and International Cooperation

Duration: 01.02.2022-30.04.2022
Coordinator: University of Trento
Partners:

  • Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) Lisbon, Portugal
  • Universitat Politècnica València (UPV), Spain

Short description: Environmental sustainability is the key to guarantee a safe future to mankind on Earth and requires balancing the exploitation of natural resources and the social and economic development. The European Union is setting new ambitious standards thanks to actions, such as the European Green Deal, that reverberate on all continents. This proposal is aimed at designing a future Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in “Engineering for Environmental Sustainability and International Cooperation” (EESIC). EESIC aims at training environmental engineers able to tackle problems characterized by both technical and non-technical complexity, looking for innovative and sustainable solutions. The 2-year, 120 ECTS programme is organized in four semesters, with the first three at the main partners and the fourth that can be spent also at one of the several Associate Partners that will be selected in different continents. The MSc thesis will focus on applied research in the context of international collaboration engineering projects. Excellence in teaching, pursued also by means of a project-oriented, hands-on approach, and fostering of soft skills, intercultural understanding and open mindset in an international class of students, will characterize a study plan that revisits the traditional subjects of environmental engineering introducing the most advanced knowledge, cutting-edge research, nature-based solutions, and non-technical abilities. The educational approach will focus on fostering soft skills through the paradigm of development engineering, based on project-based learning within the contexts of international cooperation. Thanks to their poliedric competences, graduates will be employed in any type of environmental engineering problem characterized by complexity and interdisciplinarity. The programme is expected to have an impact on the promotion of environmentally sustainable solutions worldwide.
