CESAER as partner in former Thematic Networks


In January 2013 CESAER has confirmed its particpation in a new project, tentatively called “EUGENE Dissemination”, which is an initiative taken by the former members of the EUGENE Management Committee.

The project will focus on creating different publications regarding the results of the EUGENE project (EUGENE Book, Final Conference DVD etc.) and also organizing a conference on the occasion of the 2014 SEFI Annual Conference in Birmingham. The duration of the project will be one year.

This proposal builds on the results of a previous project - EUGENE - which is the acronym of the Academic Network (AN) EUropean and Global ENgineering Education which started operations in September 2009 and was concluded this September after a total of 3 years. Its overall aim was “setting up a top level discussion and action forum to follow the continuous evolution of Engineering Education (EE) in Europe and enhance its competitive profile worldwide”. It is well recognised that socio-economic growth and competitiveness is “technology driven” and that EE plays a central role in supporting key factors such as innovation and entrepreneurship. In order to ensure managerial effectiveness, EUGENE was organised in 5 Lines and 3 Transversal Actions (TA), identifying main issues in the development of the current EE scenario in Europe and important tools for reaching the overall aim of the AN.

The five Activity Lines in EUGENE were:

A) Ph.D. Studies, Structure and Bologna follow-up: “Establishment of a European common set of excellence standards and principles, in order to make the PhD training in Engineering and Technology in Europe more effective, competitive and innovative (Leading Partners: AU Thessaloniki, KU Leuven);
B) [Promoting EE in Europe as a research field and in comparison of worldwide developments, a true and innovative research area to improve entrepreneurship, innovation and competitiveness (Leaders: Aalborg Univ., TU Delft);
C) Improve trans-national mobility of engineering students, graduates and professionals, also through contacts and synergies with the International Engineering Alliance and the Washington Accord (Leaders: ENAEE; O. Engineers–Portugal; ASIIN);
D) LLL & continuing education as a tool to improve competitiveness and innovation of European engineers (Leaders: Helsinki Univ. of Technology/TKK, EuroPACE at TU-Leuven);
E) Increase attractiveness of EHEA: towards an ERASMUS Mundus Network in EE (Leading: Univ. of Birmingham, TU Wien).

Project outcomes and addtional info are available on www.eugene.unifi.it

CESAER was also a partner in the previous thematic networks  dedicated to Engineering Education in general:

  • H3E (supported under Socrates I)
  • E4 (supported under Socrates II)
