The “RUBIGAS - Agrobiogas as an alternative source of energy in rural areas“ project focuses attention on support educational efforts to disseminate knowledge on agricultural biogas plants and renewable energy sources. The RUBIGAS partnership plans to achieve this aim through development of innovative training materials supported transfer of know-how and innovations through acquisition of new skills and competencies of farmers, farms employees and employees of agriculture sector related facilities.

The “Learning Object (LO) in Engineering Education” project aims to create the necessary and sufficient conditions, allowing students of engineering faculty to master knowledge technology in the context of professional activity.

The project “MobiVET 2.0 - Mobile Web 2.0 e-Training for Vocational Education Trainers“ aims to fill the online training gap between the self-directed learners and VET trainers by developing mobile e-learning 2.0 knowledge and skills of the trainers thus turning them from in-class trainers to skilled online tutors (e-tutors).
