Urban Resilience and Adaptation for India and Mongolia: curricula, capacity, ICT and stakeholder collaboration to support green & blue infrastructure and nature-based solutions
URGENT’s aim is to promote green & blue infrastructure and nature-based solutions (GBI&NBS) for resilient, climate-friendly and liveable cities in IN & MN (partner countries – PCs) through ICT-enhanced tertiary education linked to labour markets & wider stakeholder circles. This aim will be achieved through the following objectives:
- To revise and upgrade selected GBI&NBS -relevant BSc, MSc & PhD programs in PIs to make them end-user-oriented & policy-relevant, and develop 6 modules addressing GBI&NBS-related hotspots, that can be used interchangeably in tertiary & LLL education.
- To develop shared UREGENT Collaborative Learning Platform & online training services of the new generation for qualitative improvement of the education process & academic workflow support among universities & stakeholders across the PCs & EU.
- To create sustainable feedback mechanisms to end-users, ensuring adaptive & practice-relevant teaching contents, knowledge co-production opportunities and stakeholder support to post-project course development & teaching.
To develop capacity for academic mobility, shared experimental facilities and joint research by PIs & beyond.
