Project duration: 15 October 2017 – 14 October 2020 According to EACEA.A.4 / EB / en / (2020) 005917 of 30 April 2020, the project implementation period has been extended to 14 October 2021.
Project goals and objectives:
To develop EU based advanced interdisciplinary Master Programme in the Smart Transport and Logistics for Cities focused on the integration of the smart transport and information technology into management of cities transport systems and to introduce them in the UA and GE Universities participating in SmaLog.
Specific project objectives are:
To develop and introduce by the end of the project some complementary measures which will support the Smart Transport and Logistics for Cities students’ training in UA and GE Universities in accordance with the EU standards and the Bologna process demands, in order to prepare graduates to address the new challenges coming from the cities, namely:
-System of UA&GE teachers’ skills upgrading;
-Methodological and technological support of the Smart Transport and Logistics for Cities students’ training;
-Methodological and technological support of the theoretical fundamentals of PhD Programme in Smart Transport and Logistics for Cities;
-International Quality Assurance System;
-Students’ and teachers’ mobility including virtual mobility.
Obtained results during the life of the project presented in the short “Report of obtained results from SmaLog implementation”.
The action specific activity of SmaLog is “curriculum development” and thus to develop new and innovative education programs aiming at improving the quality of higher education and its relevance for the labor market and society.
SmaLog is based on methodological and systemic approaches, and it is completely new in exploiting transport technologies. Therefore, beneficing of the experiences of the EU countries, the synergy-based logistic approach to managing freight and passenger traffic flows in cities in a unified city transport sub-system allows to give an answer to the growing UA&GE cities’ request (to increase the safety and effectiveness of transportation services decreasing the negative environmental impact of transport).
SmaLog allows UA&GE to fill current gap in having qualified specialists and experiences in smart transportation and logistics and to contribute in improving city sustainability and liveability.
In relation to the innovation on the quality of education and teaching offered by SmaLog, relevant is the integration of three major transport subsystems in the cities based on the smart technologies (freight, passenger-car, transit). SmaLog participants have successfully developed national and regional researches in this field.
Educational and scientific programme "Smart Transport and Logistics for Cities" were successfully development and implemented in the education by Transport systems and logistics Department O. M. Beketov National University of Urban Economy in Kharkiv.
Certificate of accreditation of the educational programme "Smart Transport and Logistics for Cities", the level of higher education - Master, specialty "Transport Technology" - 436, valid until 16.06.2025.
Master Curricula were reviewed by EU reviewers, representatives of Industry sector, Internal by professors and Institute of Market Problems and Economic&Ecological Research of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
Number of students enrolled according to SmaLog programme:
Academic year 2018/2020: 13 students; Academic year 2019/2021: 16 students; Academic year 2020/2022: 13 students.
Training of highly skilled specialists in this field could allow increasing the effectiveness of decisions taken, because they are based on the existing experiences and on the best practical solutions that had already been successfully implemented in Europe and worldwide.
To achieve this result, following activities were implemented:
- special mobility strand for students;
- teaching Mobility by EU Professors;
- E-learning system for academic staff allowed to spread EU experience in the area innovation in the transport systems and logistics;
- research center "Smart transport and logistics for cities"
In the framework of the project International Quality Assurance System (IQAS) were developed and implemented at the Department of Transport Systems and Logistics O. M. Beketov National University of Urban Economy in Kharkiv. Distance defense master's work education and research programme "Smart Transport and Logistics for cities” academic year 2018/2020 took place in Teams. Master's theses were reviewed by enterprises and three master's theses were recommended for implementation. Student's academic performance (average score) is 89 (max 100).
Employability of alumni indicators is 90 %.
