Об университете

Университет Лунда (LU) — это комплексный университет с 47 000 студентов. Университет входит в число 100 лучших в мире. У ЛУ есть интернационализация как одна из ее четырех стратегий достижения цели стать университетом мирового уровня. В рамках этой стратегии LU сотрудничает с университетами по всему миру посредством двусторонних соглашений, образовательных и исследовательских программ, сетей и исследовательского сотрудничества. Университет насчитывает около 680 университетов-партнеров по обмену студентами в более чем 50 странах мира и приглашает в Лундский университет около 3100 международных магистров и 1500 студентов по обмену. Количество курсов и программ, преподаваемых на английском языке, составляет 90 магистерских программ и около 500 курсов по одному предмету. В EMA 1 LU участвует в 7 программах. В окне внешнего сотрудничества Erasmus Mundus / Действие 2, LU имеет большой опыт работы, будучи одним из первых университетов, координирующих и участвующих в качестве партнера до сегодняшнего дня. ЛУ координирует 11 проектов (Иордания / Сирия / Ливан, Индия, Китай, Азиатский регион, Иран / Ирак / Йемен) и является партнером более 30 проектов. LU также участвует в трех проектах EM3. Кроме того, ЛУ участвовал почти во всех крупных европейских, скандинавских и шведских программах международного образовательного сотрудничества, таких как LLP (Структурная сеть Erasmus JOIMAN и JOI.CON, Сократ, Erasmus, Minerva и т. Д.), Леонардо, Линней-Пальме, Nordplus, SIDA- проекты, а также Жан Монне, помимо других мероприятий в рамках Рамочных программ исследований ЕС. В FP7 LU участвует в 240 проектах и ​​координатах 14. В настоящее время LU также координирует GeoNetC, проект Erasmus +, финансируемый в 2015 году. LU со своим ГИС-центром Лундского университета, Департамент физической географии и науки об экосистемах, а также Отдел управления рисками и безопасности общества имеют прочную научную и образовательную основу в области науки и технологий в области пространственной информации (географическая информационная система, инфраструктуры дистанционного зондирования и пространственных данных), управления окружающей средой и ее защиты, а также стихийных бедствий. управление рисками. Тесное сотрудничество между этими тремя секторами открывает новые двери для междисциплинарной и инновационной исследовательской и образовательной деятельности.

Роль в проекте

ЛУ будет координатором проекта. Таким образом, все координационные мероприятия, такие как организация заседаний, включая заседания руководящего комитета, управление финансами, распределение задач, контроль за ходом и качеством, а также отчетность, будут проводиться LU. Университет также участвует в разработке курсов, подготовке инструкторов (ToT) и распространении информации. LU будет руководить созданием систем электронного обучения в университетах-партнерах и будет руководить разработкой веб-системы защиты окружающей среды и управления рисками стихийных бедствий, которая будет использоваться заинтересованными сторонами. LU обучит экспертов из стран-партнеров тому, как использовать и поддерживать систему, а также поможет / направит их в сборе данных для практического использования системы.
