At the end of September, a partnership meeting between the Juraj Dobrila University in Pula and RED FORK was held in Pula as part of the DYNAMIC Erasmus+ project. As part of the DYNAMIC project, students of the Department of Technical Studies - Juraj Vivoda and Ante Bačić are doing professional practice by creating project tasks. Student Ante Bačić participates in practice, which includes modeling devices for receiving, mixing [...]
What is the DYNAMIC project?
The project will address the need for more flexible pathways to acquire current industry-related skills needed to stimulate and sustain innovation in sectors identified by national smart specialization strategies and regional innovation in the new Member States. To this end, regular practical phases in companies will be integrated into ongoing engineering curricula to accelerate the updating of knowledge provided by higher education institutions. In order to achieve this, the project will apply the dual higher education model adapted to the county.
The goal of the DYNAMIC project is to develop, implement, test and validate 3 undergraduate programs in the fields of Mechatronics and Robotics (Sibiu, Romania), Shipbuilding and Construction (Varna, Bulgaria) and Mechanical Engineering and Production (Pula, Croatia).
In order to ensure the successful implementation of the 3 dual programs, the project will develop tool documentation and an evaluation of practical training for academic supervisors. In order to strengthen the training capacities of companies involved in dual education, the project will develop materials for the on-site training of industrial supervisors. The main intellectual result of the project is "Methodological guidelines for the design and implementation in practice of integrated dual programs of higher education in science and technology studies" in the context of Bulgaria, Romania and Croatia. The result will satisfy the need for a strategic approach in updating engineering curricula that include a dual education model.
Znanje i iskustvo stečeno tijekom projekta bit će sintetizirano u ovom metodološkom dokumentu koji će opisati različite skupove metoda korištenih u različitim fazama procesa. Potpuna predanost 16 partnera iz Bugarske, Rumunjske, Hrvatske, Njemačke i Austrije i aktivno uključivanje ključnih dionika osigurat će održivo dugoročno iskorištavanje rezultata projekta nakon životnog vijeka projekta.
Ukupni budžet projekta 679.644,00 EUR.

This September we were visited by Dr. sc. Ivona Peternel from Jurja Dobrila University in Pula. At our meeting regarding the Dynamic project, we checked the implementation of activities related to student practice, documentation and how it all translates to students. Our student Ante Bačić participates in practice by modeling a device for receiving, mixing and dosing additives, [...]
The conference was aimed at strengthening cooperation between education and the economy and the future development of dual education in higher education. The international scientific conference University Business Cooperation in International Dual Higher Education was supposed to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, but due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, it was held online from September 3-4, 2020.
