WP4 – Upgrade of existing and development of new syllabi for Smart Environment Change Management

The curriculum for Smart Environment and Climate Change Management is developed after having analysed strength points and gaps of existing similar syllabi in EU universities and EG universities. EG and EU staff receive training in Psychical sciences, Environmental research and innovations an in technologies. The outcomes of the trainings are integrated into the content of new syllabi for the MSc SECCM. The workload of the educational program in Egypt is converted according to the European system. New textbooks, mobile lectures and e-Learning modules will be created for the disciplines belonging to the new competence-based curriculum.

The following activities have been done:
