The project will engage not only students and the academic environment of the four universities, but also representatives of education, state and local government administration, NGO, media and creative industry experts.
Implementation period: from 01.October 2016 to 30. April 2019

VISEGRAD ENERGY MARKET 2020 – AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE EU

One of the most relevant area of energy cooperation is the energy market with aspects of interconnection and liberalization. This is also crucial from the perspective of energy security. Because of the political differences it seems that the common infrastructure and legal regulations could strengthen the V4 cooperation and accordingly to protect the energy security of the V4.

Therefore, the idea of the project is to analyze the energy market(s) in the V4 region in practice and includes:
1. integration of the knowledge regarding ENERGY POLICIES of CZ, HU, PL, SK + EU: to identify energy convergences/divergences within the V4 - mix, dependency, goals, choke points, in order to answer the doubt whether the V4 cooperation could be still possible and valuable and under what assumptions

2. integration of the knowledge regarding ENERGY MARKET of CZ, HU, PL, SK + EU: to analyse EU goals & to confront them with national roadmaps, especially in the field of GAS MARKET (infrastructure, liberalisation and energy stock exchange etc.) and ELECTRICITY MARKET (infrastructure, transmission/distribution losses, smart grids, capacity mechanisms, energy stock exchange, wholesale market, liberalisation, etc.) within the V4 region

3. identification of EXTERNAL ENERGY BEST PRACTICES: in order to provide best non-V4 practices, Nordic energy market will be analysed.

Implementation period:
from 01.09.2015 to 31.12.2016

Expected outputs:

  • 4 expert seminar: Kraków, Prague, Budapest, Bratislava
  • 1 international conference in Kraków
  • academic monograph
  • numerous media activities (CZ, HU, PL, SK + ENG)

Consortium:

  • POLAND: Tischner European University – the coordinator
  • HUNGARY: Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Hungarian Academy of Sciences
  • SLOVAKIA: Center for European and North Atlantic Affairs
  • THE CZECH REPUBLIC: EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy

SMART V4: INFRASTRUCTURE CHALLENGES

Despite being geographical, historical and cultural neighbours, the Visegrad countries are far from realizing their full potential for successful cooperation. It is especially evident in the case of insufficient infrastructure in the fields such as 1) energy and 2) transport. This incapability is also visible on the European level where they perennially fail to protect their common interests against the bigger EU players.

Objectives of the project:

  1. identification of infrastructure challenges faced by the V4 countries
  2. development of relevant policy papers in the fields of 1. ENERGY and 2. TRANSPORT with relevant recommendations for decision-makers
  3. dissemination of the results

Implementation period:
from 20.01.2015 to 30.11.2015

Expected outputs:

  • 2 expert seminars
  • interactive map of V4 infrastructure challenges
  • academic monograph
  • media activities (CZ, HU, PL, SK + ENG)

  • POLAND: the Jagiellonian Club – the coordinator

GRIFFIN – a new English-language specialization in International Project Management offered at M.A. in Applied Linguistics

The project aims to develop and launch an English-language specialization in International Project Management offered at M.A. in Applied Linguistics, as a pilot in Poland, building upon a methodology of edutainment and gamification (e.g. quests, webquests, games, simulations).

The new specialization, unique to the Polish education market, will enhance linguistic and cultural competencies of students along with their project management skills - developed so far separately at 2 different study programs. In that way it will meet the increasing labour market demand for project managers fluent in at least 2 foreign languages.

The project, implemented in cooperation with Buskerud and Vestfold College University, will serve the internationalization of the university by enriching its English language program offering, developing quality culture (quality assurance tools), supporting faculty competence building (study visits, workshops, joint publications and materials) and links with business.

Project supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds.
