Launch of the European Project Team2Share: Integrated Training & Teaching for Learning further aiming Knowledge Sharing Across Generations

Published

on

The National Scientific Research Institute for Labour and Social Protection (INCSMPS, Romania) will host the Team2Share: Integrated Training & Teaching for Learning further aiming Knowledge Sharing Across Generations project (no. KA2 2020-1-RO01-KA204-079963), financed by the European Commission, Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, through the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union,  during the period 01/11/2020 – 31/10/2022.

In partnership with eight other European organisations from four European Union countries (Austria, Belgium, Greece, Romania) plus Turkey, INCSMPS aims through this project to support the acquiring of key competences, including basic skills for all through the development and transfer of innovative learning methods for low-skilled adults, including but not limited to vulnerable groups.

The project was elaborated in a context where almost three quarters of the population in the EU has at least an upper secondary qualification, yet basic literacy and numeracy skills cannot be taken for granted. In 2017, around 61 million adults aged 25 to 64 had stopped their formal education before completing upper secondary education.

Further, we will lay down the partners involved in the project, main objectives, target group and deliverables, termed ”intellectual outputs”.

Partners:

  • ANA (Romania)
  • EMC (Romania)
  • Culti Multi (Greece)
  • K.A.N.E (Greece)
  • BLICK (Austria)
  • e-BL LLC (Turkey)
  • TAKIDD(Turkey)
  • EfVET (Belgium)

The main objectives of the project are:

  • Strengthening key skills, including life skills, through introducing innovative methods useful for teachers and trainers;
  • Supporting the development and uptake of innovative approaches in learning methodologies and digital technologies for teaching and learning;
  • Improving the access to training for low skilled adults, with focus on vulnerable groups by increasing quality, supply and accessibility of learning opportunities tailored to their learning needs;
  • Providing opportunities for professional development of teachers/trainers through the development of effective digital, open and innovative methods supporting the work with low skilled adults.

The Team2Share project’s target group consists of: trainers, teachers, mentors who work with low-skill adults and low-skilled adults with a focus on youth, women, low-skilled seniors. It will include 120 low skilled adults, 50 teachers/trainers/mentors, 15 experts.

The project will develop during 2 years of implementation 3 intellectual outputs as follows:

  • Training programme for trainers/teachers/mentors working with low skilled adults, consisting of a training curriculum and content that will be inserted in an ICT state of the art tool “Android application – App1” which will be based on an innovative methodology “team-oriented learning in interactive working groups” that was developed based on the principle “reproduction of the learning material in its own words deepens the acquired knowledge”.
  • Training programme for low skilled adults aiming their Team2Share, consisting of a training curriculum and content developed and included in second app, namely “Android application – Team2Share App2
  • Guidelines for Formative Monitoring and Assessment of learning outcomes, consisting in a collection of methods for formative performance monitoring, including numerous methods of performance assessment in various formats, aiming to increase performance motivation through targeted and helpful feedback.

MEP Vasile Blaga: The crisis in Afghanistan, especially in its social dimension, must have a firm response from the EU

MEP Vasile Blaga (PNL, EPP) argues that the current crisis in Afghanistan must be a priority on the agenda of the European institutions, which have resumed their work after the summer break.

In a statement for CaleaEuropeană, MEP Vasile Blaga said that the crisis in Afghanistan, especially in its social dimension, “must have a clear and firm response from the European Union.”

“The European Parliament has put the crisis in Afghanistan on its agenda this session. I expect that all the debates on the situation in Afghanistan will lead to solutions to the serious humanitarian situation that is about to unfold in Afghanistan. The EU, but also the Member States, owe a debt of gratitude to Afghan citizens who suddenly see their security and that of their families threatened”, added the EPP MEP.

The European Union this week began discussing the implications of recent events in Afghanistan for security and migration within the 27-nation Union.

The Foreign Affairs Committee, Development Committee and Parliament’s Delegation for relations with Afghanistan will hear from Gunnar Wiegand, Managing Director for Asia and the Pacific at the European External Action Service, who will present an assessment of the latest developments in Afghanistan. European Commission representatives are also expected to address MEPs.

Afghanistan has been rocked by deadly violence and a brutal terror attack against Kabul airport over the past few days, in the midst of U.S. and international troops evacuating from the country by 31 August.

MEP Vasile Blaga: EU response to future health crises and progress of national recovery and resilience plans, important issues on EP agenda

Published

on

MEP Vasile Blaga  (EPP) argues that the September plenary session of the European Parliament should debate as a priority the EU’s instruments in the face of health and humanitarian crises, as well as the progress of National Recovery and Resilience Plans.

According to the MEP, the European Parliament is putting on the agenda extremely important issues for the future of the Union.

„I believe that an EU response to the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic is vital. The future of the Union must find us prepared for potential health threats similar to the coronavirus pandemic. We can all see that a health emergency of the scale of the present one can only be managed by joint measures taken by all Member States. This unfortunate experience of the last two years has shown us the fragility of the EU in the face of external health threats. We need to learn from this so that the negative social and economic effects will not be repeated in the future”, said Vasile Blaga in a statement to CaleaEuropeană.

A second priority, says the EPP MEP, is linked to an accelerated recovery of the EU economies: “National recovery and resilience plans must be urgently adjusted and approved so that investment policies become engines of development in each Member State and, as a whole, kick-start the EU economy as a whole. The European Parliament must closely follow, also during this session, the progress of the national recovery plans and the way each Member State spends the money allocated by the NRRP to achieve the objectives listed in the Recovery and Resilience Facility”, added Vasile Blaga.

After working on infrastructure projects for NASA and the British Air Force F-35 aircraft, Lagan Aviation & Infrastructure will modernize Campia Turzii Air Base, together with the consortium represented by Leviatan Design

The British company Lagan Aviation & Infrastructure, with extensive experience in the field of infrastructure and logistics projects of the British Royal Air Force and with collaborations at NASA level, will participate as a subcontractor in the infrastructure project in the operational area of the air base at Câmpia Turzii, according to the announcement on the public procurement platform SICAP.

The British company Lagan Aviation & Infrastructure, with extensive experience in the field of infrastructure and logistics projects of the British Royal Air Force and with collaborations at NASA level, will participate as a subcontractor in the infrastructure project in the operational area of the air base at Câmpia Turzii, according to the announcement on the public procurement platform SICAP.

The tender for the first phase of the project, worth 514 million lei, on “Realization of infrastructure – operational area in barracks 1833 Câmpia Turzii” was won by the joint venture Telekom Romania Communications SA – Ubitech Construcții SRL – Petrodesign SA and Leviatan Design SRL, as leader of this partnership.

“Our consortium has the necessary experience, both from a national perspective, through similar specific projects it has carried out, and from an international perspective, through the partners we collaborate with”, said Cătălin Podaru, director of Leviatan Design, the company that participated in the pre-feasibility study for the multi-roller infrastructure at Câmpia Turzii.

Among the key international partners involved in the Câmpia Turzii project is Lagan Aviation & Infrastructure, part of the Lagan Construction Group Ltd, established in 1962. The Brits build infrastructure to the highest safety standards for Romania’s most important strategic-military partners: Among the most recent major British-managed projects are aviation projects at Dublin Airport and RAF Marham, an important strategic base for the British Royal Air Force, for the operation of F35 multi-role aircraft. The contract to upgrade infrastructure and facilities at RAF Marham is worth £135 million.

Recently, the company has successfully delivered projects at Heathrow, London City Airport, RAF Akrotiri and RAF Gibraltar. In recent years, the company has also executed a £23 million runway resurfacing contract at RAF Northolt.

The group also has a specialist US airport team based in Virginia, Washington DC, currently working at Ronald Reagan National Airport and the Wallops Flight Facility for NASA.

This company’s expertise in infrastructure projects for F-16 aircraft is important for defence projects at Câmpia Turzii, as the Romanian base hosts F-16 aircraft of the Romanian and allied air forces, as well as American MQ-9 Reaper drones.

The Campia Turzii Air Base is one of the key strategic points in Romania’s defence and security infrastructure, being treated as such even by allies. In May this year, the US Air Force announced that the United States will invest $152 million in 15 infrastructure upgrades at Romania’s Câmpia Turzii Air Base.

The first works have already started in May-August 2021. The US Air Force plans to spend $130 million this year on “mission optimisation” at the Romanian air base. This amount is reflected in the Department of Defense budget for this year and represents the largest US military investment in Europe for 2021.

Other new modernisation projects are due to start at the end of 2021.
