    4. Development of vocational lifelong learning courses
    This outcome will start in the second half of the first year and will last trough the second year. At this moment 5 courses are foreseen to be developed, one course for modern metrology, two courses for data acquisitions and digital measurements and two courses on the field of power systems measurements.

    Activities
    First activity will be to approach companies from industries and identify there needs for specific courses in the field of metrology and electrical measurements. Other activities will be connected with development of the courses.

    Resources
    Six staff members from Partner Country will be involved and also 2 staff members and one expert from EU.

    5. Students mobility
    Some of the best undergraduate and postgraduate students will have opportunity to undertake further short study programmes, like practical placements, participation in intensive courses, etc.
