Third Transnational Project Meeting in Jaén, Spain

The third transnational project meeting for the EU-project “ESSENSE” took place in the facilities of Ageing Lab near the Andalusian city Jaén in Spain. The aim of the project is to develop a complete educational offer for universities and continuing education providers, combining the topics of Building Information Modeling with “Active Assisted Living” (also: “Ambient Assisted Living” – in short: AAL) by the end of the project in 2021.

The project meeting in Jaén focused on the presentation of a “Educational Philosophy” and the “Joint Curriculum”, in which the structure and rough contents of the higher education programme are defined. The validation of this Joint Curriculum by relevant stakeholders is scheduled for early December 2019.

In terms of content, the partners from Spain, Germany, North Macedonia and Slovenia discussed the requirements of the collaborative learning platform on which ESSENSE offers the training programme with didactic materials such as learning videos. The didactic content of the curriculum was another focus of the meeting. A total of five modules will be developed on topics such as “Basic Concepts of BIM”, “Needs of the senior citizens and their caretakers” or “Smart Housing and Ambient Assisted Living principles”.

We thank Ageing Lab and all project partners for the great organisation and the successful meeting! Further information about the project and the possibility to subscribe to the ESSENSE-newsletter can be found on the website of the ESSENSE-project.

The Second Transnational Project Meeting in Yecla, Spain

The Second Transnational Project Meeting

The Second Transnational Project Meeting was held in Yecla, in CETEM facilities, during April 8th and 9th 2019.

During this meeting the discussion was about the ending on Intellectual Output 1 and the starting Intellectual Output 2, Educational Philosophy and Joint Curriculum.

The Intellectual Output was closed with a report analysing the situation and evolution of Smart Housing and Ambient Assisted Living within BIM. Then, the concept of Educational Philosophy was well explained for its future development and the partners agreed about the main concepts to develop in the curriculum. For this purpose, CETEM has organized a workshop to have a first sight about the Learning Outcomes (Knowledge, skills and Competences) to join the Curriculum and have a clear overview of each of the units.

This Workshop was attended by Dr. Rafael Maestre, leader of the Working Group 4 (Solutions for Ageing Well at Home, in the Community and at Work) in the SheldON Cost Action (CA 16226: Smart Habitat for the Elderly) and Head of CETEM’s Electronics Department, and Dr. David Caparrós, Head of Sustainable Construction Department in CTM (Technical Center of Marble, Stone and Materials of the Region de Murcia) who also presented the European projects BIMStone (2018-1-DE02-KA202-005146) and UrbanBIM (2018-1-RO01-KA203-049458) with the aim to create synergies between our projects.
