IN SEARCH FOR NEW COMPETENCES
The BIO-Save methods relate to:
- Digital design and cloud technology;
- Testing and implementation of innovative practices in biotechnology;
- Novel skills in information technology including 3D interactive education images;
- Use of new materials and products;
- Managing new solutions for recognition and validation of the knowledge, skills and competences acquired via EQF/NQF/HE instruments;
- Building of pilot training skills and green competency in the European Higher Education Area;
- Promotion of cooperation among regional authorities for efficient education.
The BIO-Save approach provides training in:
- Modern sustainable technologies in biotechnology – 3D-printing, genomics, nanotechnology and synthetic biology.
- Specific skills for handling new advanced biotech technologies.
- Risks posed by modern biotechnology.
- The new eco-friendly green use of agro-chemicals which reduce pesticides through the deployment of genes conferring resistance or tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses.
- Assessment and monitoring of eco-friendly technologies in addressing climate change.
The BIO-Save innovative differentiators involve:
- Blending of different learning tools.
- Creation of “formal” hard-skill courses and resources involving the university and the business sector.
- Hosting peer-to-peer learning opportunities, such as the “action learning” approach.
- Offering online support, a learning programme, a hub of cloud-based digital resources.
- Organising events across the EU to address the new opportunities for networking.
- Developing a creativity-led web-based application as the basis for a diagnostic tool kit, a repository of learning objects, and provision of personalised learning.
