The work to be developed in the SA2CC project is distributed into five Work Packages (WPs):

WP1 – Management

The management WP involves all the processes necessary to create a rational administrative and financial control of the project. USV, as coordinator, will drive all management actions, and its responsibilities will be to: efficiently manage the financial issues of the project; efficiently manage the technical implementation of the project through monitoring that the technical part of the project is implemented in accordance with the Grand Agreement in order to ascertain the overall progress of the work; act as the intermediary for all communications between the partners and the Executive Agency; appoint the Project Manager (PM); establish the Steering Committee (SC), the Management Committee (MC), The Quality Committee (QM) and the Dissemination Committee (DC).

WP2 – Preparation

The primary purpose of this work package is to establish a sound base for the development and implementation of the modernised courses. The activities will link the needs of the Mongolian and Kyrgyz HEIs with the business world and real economy needs. Doing it in this way, the best possible portfolio of modernised courses will be built in order to deliver to students the necessary knowledge and skills to increase their employability and to adapt to the needs and demands of the current climate changing conditions. It will also include a session on the developed collaboration space/tools and the under-development e-Learning platform to offer to the project team the tools to collaborate and work efficiently for the implementation of the project in spite the long distances separating them. Finally, the equipment specifications and the open calls to acquire them will be finalised from the beginning of the project in line with the national legislations and the Erasmus+ guidelines, in order to be purchased at the end of this WP.

WP3 - Development of the educational procedure

WP3, named Development of educational procedure, will consume the remaining time of the project and can be considered that it consists of two distinctive parts: the development of the educational material and the implementation of the modernised courses, injected with the subject of Climate Change (CC). In WP3 the major intellectual and technological products will be created and put in practice. The new CC material for the courses will be created via the collaboration space/tools and then delivered in the classrooms, accompanied by the use of ICT media products and modern equipment purchased at the end of WP2. This WP will continue with the evaluation and adjustments after the first pilot phase and will conclude with the finalisation and delivery of the courses in their final format.

WP4 – Quality

Under WP4, two (2) types of Quality Control will be carried out: one internal by the partnership and one external by two External Quality Evaluators. During the kick-off meeting of the project, the QC will set up the basis for the Quality and Evaluation Plan for the effective quality management of the project. The Plan will define the quality policies, the procedures, the criteria, the areas of application, and the roles of each partner and will be based on the principle of plan-do-check-act in order to prevent and correct (where necessary) any issues that can undermine the quality of the project and its deliverables. The consortium to assure the Quality of the project, also plan to involve two external quality auditors in order to receive an expert opinion on the major deliverables of the project. The external auditors will present via a yearly reporting system their expert opinion on the deliverables of the project and make precise recommendations addressed to the consortium.

WP 5- Dissemination and Exploitation

The main objectives of WP5 are: the dissemination of the project results to other related universities, institutions and companies at national and regional level, the presentation of the project results to other stakeholders, and the extensive promotion of the project. A successful dissemination campaign will hopefully
attract several students and stakeholders to the e-platform as their number will be the crucial indicator of success, and will bring together the consortium, academics, teachers, students, the business world and the public.
