Project name: Knowledge Triangle for a Low Carbon Economy (KALCEA)

Project number: 618109-EPP-1-2020-1-EL-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP
Coordinating institution: National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece

Project Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Aphrodite Ktena
Coordinator at UNS: Prof. Dr. Platon Sovilj
Duration: 2020 – 2023


The project and its results will contribute effectively to the objectives of the CBHE action by creating a mechanism for implementation of the knowledge triangle (KT) principles in WBC which will further improve the capacities of WBC HEIs to follow EU strategies and initiatives above mentioned. It will be realized by the creation of the structured cooperation/network of higher education institutions, industry sector representatives, and research institutions in all partner countries involved in the application, which will further enable continuous cooperation in research, education, and innovation. Furthermore, the capacities at all WBC HEIs will be improved by the set-up of Knowledge-Innovation Centers (KIC) and working research teams, which will closely cooperate in the KT activities. Cooperation between the HEIs and industry sector will be realized through collaborative projects to be developed and the implementation of innovative professional programs. One innovative professional program in Sustainable energy will be developed and realized in cooperation with the industry sector which will improve “green” skills. WBC HEIs will promote their new structures and capacities for innovative research at the national, regional, and international levels. Policy on research and innovation will also be developed at all WBC HEIs involved.
