Kick-off Meeting

Another Erasmus+ project at our Faculty

On 1 December 2022, the international project IDEC PBL started, with SZTE GTK as the lead partner.

The project is also joined by the Foundation for Africa as well as the Spain Stucom Centre d'Estudis and the French Iaelyon School of Management university. On 17-18 January, we hosted the partners in a kick-off meeting at Szeged, which was held in a very good atmosphere, the project was enriched with useful suggestions and ideas and the partners left with a positive opinion of our Faculty.

The aim of the 3 year-long collaboration is to improve the quality of education by integrating project-based learning as an active learning component. The project will result in the creation of an online simulation game (serious game) within the theme of international development cooperation aid, with a particular focus on Africa. Together with our partners, we will also develop new course descriptions and curricula that will allow the game to be integrated into university courses.
