UTMN to Develop Programmes on Waste Management as Part of Erasmus+ Project
The University of Tyumen is to participate in the European Commission’s new international project Erasmus+: Higher Education – International Capacity Building: Enhancing Competences of Sustainable Waste Management in Russian and Kazakh HEIs.
The project is coordinated by the Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Finland).
The project was highly regarded by experts and, beating 756 applications, received a grant for its realization.
The project aims to develop waste management educational programmes for higher educational institutions. It is expected that training solid waste management specialists will improve waste disposal and enhance environmental awareness in the participating regions.
The realization of the Erasmus+ project is especially important for Tyumen Region, as its solid waste management infrastructure is being actively developed and strongly needs qualified specialists.
UTMN will work on the international project with 8 other universities: 3 European schools (Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Finland, Lillebaelt Academy, Denmark, and the University of Valladolid, Spain), 3 Kazakh institutions (Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, Sh.Ualikhanov Kokshetau State University and M. Auezov South-Kazakhstan State University) and 2 Russian HEIs (ITMO University, Saint Petersburg, and the Ural Federal University, Yekaterinburg). The universities are also partnered in the scheme by Spetsavtobaza LLC, West Siberian Innovation Centre and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
