The Brights Erasmus+ project
aims to contribute to boosting and valorizing the central role of HEIs in tackling the 2030 Agenda and the Green Deal objectives. This will be done at all levels of the academic community:

  • At the students’ level, the project intends to respond to the need for awareness on the SDGs and Sustainability, for skills development, necessary to ensure proper youth involvement in the transition, and as a tool of empowerment in the rising green jobs market.
  • At the teaching staff level, BRIGHTS responds to the need for new methodologies to help teachers upskill and reskill their didactic modalities, and to deliver content in new stimulating ways.
  • At a systemic and organisational level, BRIGHTS intends to meet the need highlighted by the Green Deal, to empower Universities in their capacity to address the green transition.

The project aims at reaching three results: 1. The creation of MOOCS and the implementation of Sustainability Leadership sessions to educate students about the 2030 Agenda.

ELSE – Erasmus+ aims at designing and disseminating a strategy to achieve the fundamental European goal of redesigning Higher Education, facilitating the application of Bologna principles across Europe through the design of an integrated curriculum and of an innovative web platform. The partners – mainly Universities, of different size and specialism, distributed across Europe – realise that the implementation of the Bologna process has been patchy, and that its potential benefits are underexploited. Two fundamental principles of Bologna (echoed in the Lisbon document and the LLP for adult education) remain unrealised: 1. Students continue to be peripheral to the process of knowledge co-construction; and 2. the potential for true pedagogical innovation through new technologies that can enhance the learning experience is underexplored.
The ELSE project aims to:

  • Design an innovative learning environment based on learner-centred pedagogies (holistic, constructivist, connectivist approaches), which can activate students’ learning process through problem-solving, learning-by-doing, gamification, or digital information research;
  • Demonstrate to teachers that these opportunities can be realised through the application of Higher Order Thinking ICTs;

CyberSafety II aims to enrich the existing awareness platform where actors can find resources and tools, share experiences, expertise and good practices. At the same time it aims to contribute towards a European approach and provide qualitative and quantitative feedback at European level, through the core service platform. The Awareness activity will be the core of all the Action Activities. It aims to create a culture among children, parents and teachers to take advantage of the affordances of the Internet with safe, responsible and ethical use. Awareness will continue the existing work that is taking place in Cyprus, update and enrich the digital content and resources already developed, enhance existing services and tools deployed and extend collaborations and synergies among stakeholders.

ReaDI-STANCE (RESTART 2016 – 2020 PROGRAMME) READING DIFFICULTIES INTERVENTION: SCIENTIFIC, TECHNOLOGICAL, AND NEW COMMUNITY EFFORTS: Early intervention is crucial to the prevention of reading difficulties (RD). Nevertheless, there are no empirically validated answers to the question of what intervention(s) work best, for which children, in what setting(s), for what duration, and for what reason. Hence, there is an urgent need for several educational systems to get more deeply involved in this area. The aims of the present project are three-fold: First, to examine the efficacy of two intervention programs, one with more cognitive (PREP: PASS Reading Enhancement Program) and one with a more phoneme-code (Graphogame) focus. Both programs will be delivered as web-based applications through platforms that will allow data storage and processing via remote servers. Second, to develop a novel framework for analyzing remediation data micro-genetically. We expect that this sort of data processing will help us explore the learning progress dynamics and developmental stages of the readers during the intervention and examine the type of early intervention most useful for treating specific RD. Finally, the third aim is to intensively train graduate students, special education teachers, and school psychologists to understand better how to apply evidence-based effective intervention in theory and practice.

ICT COST Action IC1302: Semantic keyword-based search on structured data sources (KEYSTONE)

Funding: COST Specific
ICT COST Action IC1406 High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications (cHiPSet)

Description: The Big Data era poses a critically difficult challenge and striking development opportunities in High-Performance Computing (HPC): how to efficiently turn massively large data into valuable information and meaningful knowledge. Computationally effective HPC is required in a rapidly-increasing number of data-intensive domains, such as Life and Physical Sciences, and Socioeconomic Systems.Modelling and Simulation (MS) offer suitable abstractions to manage the complexity of analysing Big Data in various scientific and engineering domains. Unfortunately, Big Data problems are not always easily amenable to efficient MS over HPC. Also, MS communities may lack the detailed expertise required to exploit the full potential of HPC solutions, and HPC architects may not be fully aware of specific MS requirements. Therefore, there is an urgent need for European co-ordination to facilitate interactions among data-intensive MS and HPC experts, ensuring that the field, which is strategic and of long-standing interest in Europe, develops efficiently – from academic research to industrial practice.This Action will provide the integration to foster a novel, coordinated Big Data endeavour supported by HPC. It will strongly support information exchange, synergy and coordination of activities among leading European research groups and top global partner institutions, and will promote European software industry competitiveness.
