Eurydice project’s first face-to-face meeting

In its ongoing efforts to improve students’ employability in the field of renewable energies, the Eurydice project partners held their first face-to-face meeting at the Bloemfontein campus of the Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) from 26 to 27 September 2022. As the new normal dictates, this two-day gathering adopted a hybrid format whereby some project members who could not travel joined the meeting virtually. The meeting focused on progress updates about the Eurydice project, whereby the project partners reported their successes and challenges.

Among the priority topics that were discussed were project finances; procurement practices and systems; project planning and reporting; project timelines; dissemination of information; curriculum development; the sourcing of experts to assist in the program; and promoting student participation in the projects acceleration activities. The gathering lit up frequently when progress updates about the purchase of mobile labs by the CUT, DUT, and TUT were shared since it poses to enhance the dissemination process and bring students closer to the core of what the Eurydice project aims to achieve.

Attending the meeting was a team from the CUT Centre for Global Engagements led by Mrs. Refilwe Moleyane, alongside some academic personnel from the Faculty of Engineering Information Technology and Built Environment (FEBIT) led by the faculty dean, Prof. H Vermaak; the financial management partner, Deloitte was represented by Paivi; the Durban University of Technology (DUT) represented by Dr. Rathilal; with Ntombi representing the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT); Budapest University of Technology (BME) by  Dr Plesz Balaz; University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien (UASTW) represented by Prof. Marc-Otto Oliver & Dr Momir Tabakovic; and the Ulm University of Applied Sciences (UUAS) was represented by Prof. Commerel.
