Project description —
The I-Web Project is aimed to strengthen the partnerships between business, regulatory and academic sectors at a national and international level through their collaborative development and delivering of integrated surface and groundwater management for Masters and PhD programmes. A key innovation is the nurturing of trustful relations between sectors through the co-identification of current and emerging graduate skill needs, the sharing of international best practice and the inclusion of business/regulatory expertise within teaching. Identified needs will be met through the development and modernisation of new and existing post-graduate programmes in line with Bologna objectives, with a clear focus on ensuring graduates develop skills required to support the sustainable use of surface and ground waters. Opportunities to broaden participation will be exploited through the development of strategies and mechanisms to deliver Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses.
Project Objectives —
- supporting a two-way dialogue between business, regulators, and government agencies
- training of Kazakhstani teachers and students on the IWCC
- development and delivery of master's and doctoral programs in accordance with the principles of the Bologna Process
