The project aims to foster interchange and cooperation between education and training systems within the EU.  The ISECRET project will reinforce and accelerate the process of innovation in HE by enhancing the universities’ capabilities by granting better access to the educational know-how as OER, setting an effective experimental framework for defining and measurement Educational Outcome for the selected Master Programmes in SE&ST at European and Baltic regional level.

Partnership of 6 organizations from 6 countries is planned to implement the iSecret project:

  • WSG – University of Economy in Bydgoszcz (Poland)
  • KTU – Kaunas Technological University (Lithuania)
  • UM – University of Murcia (Spain)
  • TEIEP – Technological Educational Institute of Epirus (Greece)
  • UP – Plovdiv university (Bulgaria)
  • TSI – Transport and Telecommunication Institute (Latvia).

Expected results of the projects are the following: creation of operational prototype of Internet Portal (SECEIP) for SE&ST Master Program’s graduates competence evaluation and certification; design of the Basic ECTS oriented Framework applicable for Joint Master Programs in SE&ST implementation and assessment; demo example of SE&ST Master Program’s Education Outcome (competence) definition in terms of e-CF freely accessible for European educational community as OER.
