Learning Infrastructures in the Field of Nanotechnology – EduNano TEMPUS

The industry in the nanotechnology area needs to be involved in defining the knowledge and skills required of nanotechnology graduates so that they can integrate better into the industry and meet both current and future requirements that are critical to the success of Israel in this field.

The EduNano project is part of TEMPUS, an EU program that supports the modernization of higher education. SNI participates in the project together with the Nano centers of Tel Aviv University, the Hebrew University, Ben-Gurion University, Bar-Ilan University, Weizmann Institute of Science, and Elbit Systems. In addition, the Technical University of Sofia in Bulgaria, the Polytechnic Institute of Turin in Italy, and the Grenoble Institute of Technology in France participate in the project.

As part of the project, infrastructures for online learning  and courses were developed in the field of nanotechnology for students toward master’s degree and training courses for the industry.

In 2014-2015, SNI conducted a survey among industrial companies in the field of nanotechnology, the goal of which was to assess their needs regarding the courses to be developed in the project. An analysis of the data collected in the survey is included in the interim report of the project.

A meeting of the project team was held in Bulgaria on July 2015. The status of the projects was reviewed, feedback on the interim report was given, and the continued projects were planned.

In 2016, SNI conducted a second survey among industrial companies and academic researchers in the field of nanotechnology, the goal of which was to assess their needs regarding the courses that were developed in the project. An analysis of the data collected in the survey was presented in a project team meeting that was held in Torino on September 2016.
