Project summary

The overall objective of this project is to offer attractive education within Sustainable Manufacturing through the exchange of knowledge between NTNU and KPI.

This will be done by strengthening existing cooperation between the institutions and establishing new contacts both among staff and students.

The project will emphasise improvement of already existing courses and programs in manufacturing topics related to Industry 4.0 and Additive Manufacturing, as well as facilitating research on these topics. Moreover, the cooperation seeks to develop modern teaching methods (learning factories and simulation), and a program to achieve better gender balance for staff and students in technical studies.

NTNU will also utilise co-operation with NCE Raufoss "Kvinnearena" with for example use of female role-models, seminars and targeted promotion. Finally, a strong academic alliance between the institution environments will, in addition to creating attractive study opportunities and increasing the quality of education, strengthen the mobility of both staff and students.

Students that are studying at partner institutions will therefore be able to get access to jointly developed courses and educational activities organised within the project.

The introduction of learning factory will change how technology management is taught and open up new possibilities for groundbreaking research.

Moreover, international experiences will enhance cultural exchange between students from KPI and NTNU. As corruption is an extremely important topic for Ukraine, study exchange opportunities will make it easier for Ukrainian students familiarise themselves with attitudes to corruption in Western Europe.
