B.6          summary

 

 

 

Please provide a short description of your proposal (max 1 page, 30 lines) explaining who will be involved in the project, what the project consists of, why it is necessary, and where and when it will take place. You are kindly requested to provide this summary in English, French or German. (Parts of this summary may be used in directories of selected projects). 

A summary in English, French or German is obligatory if the application is not written in one of the EU languages.

We advise you to write your summary after completing the whole application form.

 

The general aim of this project is to improve the practical skills, to help to obtain international experience of future Hungarian engineers by foreign industrial training.

For this purpose we propose a cooperation between 3 Hungarian higher educational institutions (BUTE, Dunaujváros Polytechnic, Budapest Polytechnic) and a German enterprise IBISTRA, (involving into the project the members of BITKOM, a German association representing more than 1200 enterprises, mainly small and medium size, in informatics) with the expert help of a French higher educational institute (CNAM), a Hungarian company (DUNAFERR), experienced in vocational training on all level.

The activity proposed is a practical training of 18 Hungarian students majoring in informatics at German enterprises for 5 months.

BUTE, CNAM, DUNAFERR and IBISTRA have been cooperating in the framework of European programs (Phare and Tempus) during the last 7 years in alternating higher educational training (Sandwich-training) at BUTE. This consortium (extended by DUP, BPT) was formed 2 years ago and successfully applied for the support of 2 Leonardo mobility projects aiming the foreign practical placements (mainly practical semester or diploma work) of students (30 in 2000-02, 22 in 2001-03). 27 students have finished by this time their training in Germany.

The cooperation is highly appreciated by all partners (students, enterprises, higher educational institutions, expert organizations) and they declared the willingness of its continuation and extension. The acceptation of this application would create an organized framework for the planned, wider than the direct objective of this project, activities. The main new elements are:

  • Besides the practical placements of a total of 18 students partly financed by Leonardo, the consortium is planning to send other students to EU countries (by the same methodology), creating by this way a long term, self financing structure.
  • The results of the Leonardo pilot project " Methodology for the Evaluation of Student Industrial Placements Abroad" coordinated by CEFI, France (see "Practical Guide" www.cefi.org) will be used in the full process (selection, preparation, training, evaluation etc.).
  • A carrier follow up is planned for the participating students.

The dissemination was, is and will be an important part of the activities. A few examples from the past: The results of the previous projects can be followed on the home page http://tutor.nok.bme.hu . The participating institutions use the experience in their other training forms. The Leonardo projects were presented at national, international meetings, conferences (e.g. Hungarian Leonardo Higher Education Information Day /among the "good practices"/, ICEE 2001 (International Conference on Engineering Education, see: www.ineer.org) .

Finally we underline that besides the needs of students, universities the project corresponds to the needs of companies, and it helps to satisfy this need without a "brain drain" effect (as the young workers will be really competitive for joint enterprises and/or they may create their business and stay in Hungary).

 


 

C.      project aim

In filling in this section please use half page/15 lines max per question

 

C.1.         Justification of the proposal

 

1..... What needs (e.g. sectoral, regional, institutional, etc.) does your project address? In particular, who are your project’s beneficiaries and what are their specific training needs?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Engineering programs at Hungarian higher educational institutions in general have very little practical elements, which is widely criticized (mainly by the enterprises).

The practical placements (alternating type training, industrial semesters, diploma works at an enterprise) are becoming an integral part of the engineering training of the Hungarian higher education, so the project completely corresponds to the development of work-related training programs.

The direct beneficiaries are the students. As a result of this mobility the students will enter the job market after graduation with international experience in communication (in a foreign language and in general), in business management and in international business/cooperation, combined with their experiences in real life working situation and the specific professional skills they acquire during the training. These will give them a much better start in finding a good job.

The project corresponds obviously to the needs of enterprises, and by an indirect way it is useful for the educational institutions as well.

 

 

 

 

 

2.         How are the target country(ies), the host organisation(s) and the envisaged duration of the placements/exchanges relevant to the training needs of your project’s beneficiaries?

 

 

Germany is the biggest economic partner and investor in Hungary. The proposed foreign placements were originally suggested in 1999 by the German association of IT companies (BITKOM), because of the lack of qualified informaticians available on the German job market. A foreign company which has branches in Hungary, where they would like to employ more young engineers is particularly interested in this kind of cooperation, because the students participating in the professional training might be viewed as prospective employees or prospective business partners, maybe distance-workers.

The length of practical placements is not fixed at Hungarian higher education level (according to the Hungarian Requirement of Qualification the engineering programs must contain a minimum 12 week practical placement). The proposed duration corresponds to the needs of the companies.

 

 

 

 

3.         What are the specific objective(s) of the project in respect to all different involved parties: beneficiaries, sending and host organisations, intermediary organisations (if any)?

 

 

The specific objective of the project is to help the participating students to create business partnerships with their companies following the training maybe as distance workers or to help them to start their own business.

 

 

 

4.         How does your project address the programme objectives and the priority of the call for proposals which you indicated above?

 

 

Objective 1, To improve the skills …

According to the objectives of the project Hungarian students in informatics will work at German enterprises (mainly of small or medium size) which improves their professional, especially practical competence. The other elements of training (language, communication skills) correspond to the needs of all partners.

Objective 3: To promote … innovation, with a view to improving competitiveness and entrepreneurship…

Besides the importance of the vocational training period for all main partners (enterprise, student, university) we underline the new element of "distance work" (i.e. work in Hungary for a foreign enterprise) following the graduation of the student, where this distance cooperation is the result of the experiences of the training period.

Priority 2. Partnership .. between vocational training bodies, and companies, in particular SMEs …

A real equal cooperation will be (with participation of SME, intermediate organisations, higher education) in all elements (selection, training, evaluation, extension) based on the earlier experience of the consortium members (e.g. 2 successful Leonardo mobility projects).

 

 

 

 

5.         What are the innovative aspects of your proposal? (e.g.: Does your project target sectors traditionally not involved in mobility actions? Do you plan to introduce new arrangements for the implementation of the project in terms of management, preparation of beneficiaries, pedagogical methods, supervision and follow-up, other? etc.)

 

 

In case of acceptance INF3 project will be the 3rd similar activity carried out by the same consortium. Besides the "old" innovative aspects (e.g. a short intercultural communication training to the participating students, or the internet based project management /see http://tutor.nok.bme.hu/), it is planned to introduce:

  • the wide use of the results of the Leonardo pilot project " Methodology for the Evaluation of Student Industrial Placements Abroad" coordinated by CEFI, France (see "Practical Guide" www.cefi.org) in the full process (selection, preparation, training, evaluation etc.), and additionally the delivery of a special certificate.
  • a carrier follow up for the participating students in previous Leonardo projects.

 

 

 

 

6.        
If your proposal is related to one or more mobility proposals with a view to organising reciprocal placements/exchanges (see section B.2), please describe the context and the added benefits for all involved parties.  If the reciprocal application were to be unsuccessful, how would this affect the outcomes or management of your project?

 

 

There are no plans for reciprocal placements.

 

 

 

7.        
If your proposal is combined with proposals presented in the current selection year (see section B.4) under other measures, please explain the interdependence with the other proposals and the expected added value

 

 

There are no combined proposals.

 

 

 

 

C.2.         Results AND IMPACT

 

1.     What are the expected outcomes for the different involved parties: beneficiaries, sending and host organisations, intermediary organisations (if any), etc.?

2.     If you have indicated in B.1 that your project targets directly the development of practices to facilitate access to training for people most at a disadvantage in the labour market, including disabled people, and/or equal opportunities for women and men, with a view to combating discrimination in training provision, and/or the promotion of social dialogue in vocational training, please explain how this will be achieved.

3.     Will the placement/exchange test products and/or practices developed by a pilot or a mobility project? If so, please give details.

4.             Do you anticipate any wider impact of the project? If so, what?

3-4.

Enterprises: They receive academically well prepared specialists, who can be used for practical work in the 5 months of placement. In case of joint satisfaction the Hungarian students can do further distance work or a business cooperation can be established.

Students: They can achieve practical experience to their academic knowledge, develop language, communication and business skills, create their own small enterprise, be more competitive on the labor market.

Hungarian Higher Educational Institutions: The project helps them to strengthen the relations between economy and education, to develop the structures for practical placements, which corresponds to the needs of time and specifically the goal set by the university.

IBISTRA carries out most of the activities related to Germany (identification of interested enterprises, participation in the selection process, reception, accommodation of the students, continuous evaluation etc.). This kind of co-operation can not be realized without a local partner. These activities fit to the profile of the firm. In long term the Hungarian cooperation corresponds to the interest of IBISTRA to extend these activities to other countries of the region.

CNAM included Hungary (Budapest, Miskolc, Pécs) in its European network of study centers (related mainly to life long learning). The expert work helps CNAM to the better understanding of the Hungarian situation, to find new partners.

EU, Central European countries: The project can serve as an example (for possible extension) for the methodologically well-prepared co-operation between EU enterprises and CE educational institutions. The results of the previous projects were disseminated by CNAM, IBISTRA and BUTE to some countries of the region (e.g. Lithuania, Slovakia) and initiated similar Leonardo mobility applications (some of them successful) in these countries.

This question is not relevant to INF3 project.

We expect that the cooperation of the 3 higher education institutions will have more widely applicable results, especially concerning the organization, monitoring and evaluation of practical placements abroad. The methodology of this kind of placements is not well developed yet in Hungary. The experience of this mobility project, based on the methodology developed by the cited above Leonardo "MESIPA" pilot project can be beneficial to all higher education institutions to develop the necessary selection, monitoring and evaluation methods and finally leading to the creation (similarly to EU countries) of some kind of administrative unit for the management of practical placements abroad.

D.4.         Description of the partnership

 

Please give a brief description of the partnership and of its experience in international mobility.

 

 

The partners in this consortium have already had 2 successful foreign mobility application in the Leonardo program (INFGERM, INFTRAIN mobility projects). The implementation of the ongoing projects, and the first experiences are very promising. The methodological and organizational questions will be worked out in the framework of this ongoing mobility projects. Those solutions which the partners find and the experience in working together will definitely help the implementation of this proposed, third mobility project.

BUTE took part as a partner in the Leonardo pilot project " Methodology for the Evaluation of Student Industrial Placements Abroad" coordinated by CEFI, France (see "Practical Guide", which was finished in summer 2001: www.cefi.org). The results of this project will be used in the full mobility process (selection, preparation, training, evaluation etc.).

The acceptation of this moderate mobility project (the consortium understood that the possibilities of the Hungarian Leonardo program are limited) would guarantee (by an administrative way as well) the long term existence of this partnership leading besides the Leonardo co-financed placements to placements fully financed by enterprises.

E.2.         Content of the placement/exchange:

 

Provide a description of the training/work experience (for each flow of placements) or of the work programme (for each  exchange) planned in the host organisations.  

 

 

The main activity will be the practical training in the area of informatics according to the needs of enterprises and to the needs of the students.

Concerning the programs of higher educational institutions the spring semester is more convenient for the placements. Most of the mobility is planned for spring 2003.

The students will work on problems jointly determined by the needs of enterprises and academic institutions. The result will be the diploma work of students (or the thesis will be based on this work in a considerable number of cases). The students' activities are continuously supervised by double (industrial-academic) tutorship.

The recommendations of "MESIPA" Leonardo pilot project will be used in the whole training period.

 

 

 

E.3.         Validation and accreditation Strategy

 

1.     How does your placement/exchange project fit into the beneficiaries’ training course/work programme?

2.     How will validation and accreditation of the training/work period be ensured? By whom? What will its legal value be? (please add a model of the document foreseen, if any)

3.             If your project makes use of Europass, describe how the common principles of Europass will be implemented.

 

 

 

 

1. The participating students are final year university or college students. The last semester of the university studies at BUTE is a diploma work semester therefore their training is considered as a diploma work and fits to their program naturally (it is validated by 30 credit points). At the colleges the students have a choice to participate in a so called cooperative semester. These students will chose to become cooperative students (alternating) and this way the placement will become part of their curricula.

 

2. As described in the above paragraph, the validation and accreditation of the training period has already been solved at the schools (diploma work, cooperative semester etc.).

So the practical placements are accepted by the 3 participating Hungarian higher educational institutions (BPT, BUTE, DUP), although the solutions are not uniform at all 3 institutions.

As a new element, additionally to validation described above and successfully used in the previous projects, the consortium is working on a special supplement to the diploma, which certificates the details of these foreign practical placements (and by this way indicates, that this training form contains additional elements with respect to the "normal" Hungarian education). This certificate written in a foreign language will inform the enterprises about the special experience of the holding students. The work has started on the form and legal conditions of the diploma supplement certificate.


 


E.4.         Project management.

 

1. Describe arrangements for project management, including contractual and financial aspects.

2. Describe the actions, arrangements and tools planned for evaluating and disseminating the results of the project (at national and transnational level).

3.  Outline partners’ roles and your proposed workplan and timetable.

.

 

 

1. As it was mentioned before 4 of these partners (BUTE, CNAM, DUNAFERR, IBISTRA) have been working together in practical training of engineers for 7 years. It would be the 3rd Leonardo mobility project for the full consortium (included BPT, DUP). So there is an experienced project management, and there are methods of common work which proved their vitality. However it is planned to introduce new elements (e.g. follow up, special certificate, application of the results of a Leonardo pilot project ) which needs additional efforts. The main elements:

All (non confidential) information concerning of the new INF3 project (together with the previous projects)  will be available on the internet (http://tutor.nok.bme.hu click "Practical Placements"). Each year there is alt least 1 full consortium meeting (at the Hungarian countryside), where the timetable of activities, contractual, financial aspects, new plans of the consortium are discussed. The Hungarian consortium members meet each other regularly (at least 3 times in a semester). The representatives of IBISTRA and the German companies visit Hungary at least once a semester (and take part in the different activities, e.g. selection). The tutors and/or the project management visit each student at least once in Germany. Otherwise the communication is based on email, phone and seldom fax.

 

2. The dissemination of the results is a common interest for all partners. Similarly to the previous projects it will be on different levels:

We underline that in case of the previous common projects all these listed activities have been realized.

 

3. Partners' role. Here the summary of partners' activities is given (including BUTE):

E.5.         ORGANISATION of the placements/exchanges

 

Describe the actions, arrangements and tools planned for:

-      finding and selecting the host organisations, (partners already or not yet identified); please indicate whether you foresee preparatory visits to the host organisations, and approximately how many;

-      informing and selecting potential candidate beneficiaries (please specify also the selection criteria), defining and following up their commitment, ensuring that they all respect it;

-      organising and providing pedagogical, cultural and linguistic preparation to the beneficiaries (before and/or during the placement/exchange);

-      supervising the placement/exchange (supervision might be ensured by the sending and/or by the host organisations; it might also include the pastoral care of the beneficiaries by an accompanying person, when necessary) and ensuring mentorship by the host organisation.

-      making arrangements for travel and accommodation, health and safety insurance for the beneficiaries abroad;

-              verifying entry formalities (passport, visa, work permit) in the destination country, where needed.

 

 

For each of the actions above please provide a time schedule and indicate  which partner(s) will be involved.

 

 

1.                   The German companies will be informed by the IBISTRA about the new possibility. The students will be informed by the higher educational institutions (BPT, BUTE, DUP) by Sept. 15, 2002.

2.                   Preparation of the "profiles" of students and enterprises (BPT, BUTE, DUP), meeting in Budapest with the participation of interested students, representatives of enterprises, higher educational institutions (enterprises, IBISTRA, BPT, BUTE, DUP) by Oct. 15, 2002.

3.                   Start of the professional, language, intercultural preparation for the students in Hungary (for all candidates, BPT, BUTE, DUP) by Nov. 1, 2002.

4.                   Consortium meeting (Hungarian countryside, ALL MEMBERS). Discussion of current issues, evaluation of activities (CNAM, DUF), dissemination strategies. Jan. 16-19, 2003.

5.                   Final selection (companies represented by IBISTRA, BPT, BUTE, DUP). The criteria for students-company partnerships is based on experience of CNAM, DUF and MESIPA project. These criteria will contain the following elements: academic competence, language /English - working, German - basic/, personal ability, motivation, skill test. In case of more interest both by students and enterprises the number of selected students would be larger then the number of Leonardo scholarships. By Jan. 20, 2003.

6.                   The project management (BUTE) makes contracts according to the Leonardo rules, arranges the travel, insurance, visa etc. of the students by Febr. 15, 2003.
