Active Twinning for Enhancing Physical Activity in Rural Areas

The main goal of A-TWIN is “to promote education in and through sport” that is focussed on promoting sport practise in natural spaces through urban active parks where all those elements that are included in, are related to cultural education. Leaded by Fundacion Universidad San Jorge, three pillars hold it:
– Outdoor physical activities and sport for all, leaded by a grassroot mountain activities club (Boira, Spain).
– Cutural learning based on common interest, history and links between twinned towns (Zuera -Spain, Ramonville -France and Trescore-Italy).

Promoting Deep and Wide Thinking / Early Dual Degrees in Basic Sciences

About EU Higher Education Policy: EU leaders have agreed a target that 40% of those aged 30-34 should have a higher education or equivalent qualification by 2020. While higher education graduates are more likely to find employment than people with lower levels of qualifications, higher education curricula are often slow to respond to changing needs in the wider economy, and fail to anticipate or help shape the careers of tomorrow. Addressing Europe’s high-level skills needs requires action.

First, more people need to be attracted to the fields of study that prepare students for jobs where shortages exist or are emerging. In many EU Member States there is unmet demand for graduates in SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, (arts) and MATHS (STE(A)M) fields, medical professions and teaching.

Asistentes Evolutivos Inteligentes para iniciar Líneas de Producto Software

Vivimos en un mundo donde la frontera entre la economía tradicional y la economía digital ha desaparecido. Productos tradicionales tan heterogéneos como electrodomésticos, vehículos o teléfonos han sido transformados por un mayor protagonismo del software en los mismos. Tal es el impacto del software que influencia la capacidad para satisfacer una demanda global de productos cada vez más personalizados. El estado del arte para atender con éxito esta personalización en masa son las Líneas de Producto Software (LPS). Una LPS consiste en la ingeniería de un conjunto de productos con elementos comunes y variables mediante un proceso que maximiza la reutilización entre las diferentes variantes. Esto incluye la construcción de un modelo de variabilidad que explicita las características de los productos. Las diferentes variantes de la LPS pueden ser configuradas y producidas mediante el ensamblado de activos reutilizables reduciendo el coste de los productos personalizados.

Sino – european interculturality valorizing professionalizing knowledge in institutional and marketing communication

Le projet est né de plusieurs constats effectués dans plusieurs pays européens au regard de leurs relations commerciales et institutionnelles avec la Chine.
1.C’est une évidence, les pays asiatiques et en particulier la Chine prennent de plus en plus part à notre économie, ce qui se traduit par un afflux d’entreprises qui viennent s’installer en Europe. (exemple très récent : le China Belgium Technology Center qui va s’établir à Louvain La Neuve)
2.Et l’inverse est également vrai, beaucoup d’entreprises européennes veulent découvrir le marché asiatique.
