The winning team of the 1st Call of Unite!4Future presented the project proposal “Akamu” and, during their week at ULisboa, they were able to work on the future steps to implement their project within Unite!

The winning team of the first Unite!4Future call was entitled to their award week in April 2022 at ULisboa.

The Unite!4Future programme’s main aim is to attract student participation from the alliance’s seven partner universities for creative ideas on what can be expected from a university of the future. Through a competition, in a bottom-up approach, Unite!4Future will enable students to participate by coming up with original, concrete and implementable ideas that are an asset to the Unite! community. These are non-academic projects, but related to all other aspects of the university student experience and everyday life on campus.

During this week they will have the support of several experts to build a “business plan” for the winning project. The week also includes several activities to present the University of Lisbon, the city of Lisbon and the Portuguese culture to the students of the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – Barcelona Tech.

Erasmus SPIRIT Project meeting@Valencia

Monday, June 6th, 2022

ERASMUS+ program: “Sport and physical education as a vehicle for Inclusion and Recognition in India, Indonesia and Sri Lanka / SPIRIT”

Técnico Lisboa was represented by Ana Pipio, International Relations Office Coordinator, at the meeting that took place in Valencia/Spain in May 2022.

The project tries to address two existing problems in the 3 partner countries involved (Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia): 1. Growing chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) have emerged as a huge global health problem in low- and middle-income countries. The magnitude of the rise of NCDs is particularly visible in Southeast Asia where limited resources have been used to address this rising epidemic. 2. Around the world, young people need free time, space and fellowship to enjoy sport and play. While the need for the activities of sport is global in scope, the ability to be included often is not.

This program will be developed with capacity building trainings on sports and nutrition education. This training activity will be guided directly by resource persons from European partners, namely The University of Nicosia (Cyprus), Universitat Politècnica De Valencia (Spain), and Universidade De Lisboa (Portugal).

In order to compensate for the time loss due to covid, TT4 (train-the-trainer) sessions were in Valencia on Sport Management,  so that more teachers and specialists can benefit from the train-the-trainer sessions.

The welcome ceremony took place at Assembly Hall of the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería del Diseño ETSID, where the Director of International Relations Dr. Nuria Llobregat introduced the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia and then together with Dr. Cesar Irribarren (Director of the Sports Area) they made a campus visit.

From Lisbon University,Técnico Lisboa (Ana Pipio) and FMH (Prof. António Rosado)  were present at this meeting.

From 29 November to 1 December 2021, the Unite! Project and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech (UPC), organised the IV Dialogue Unite! The hybrid Dialogue will offer participants the opportunity to discuss around the various themes and activities developed in Unite!

31 members of the University of Lisbon were in Barcelona, in the scope of the Unite! alliance, in order to discuss paths and vision for the future of European Universities, among which Denise Moura (Director of the International Affairs – AAI) and Joana Salgueira (International Project Manager of the International Relations Office- NRI) for IST.

For the first time, the meeting included an event designed for stakeholders involved in the alliance who could participate in the discussion. The IV Unite!
