P4 Skilled and socially inclusive region
4.2. More aligned vocational education and training (VET) programmes in the Central Baltic region
01.04.2020 - 30.09.2022
To improve mobility in the whole Central Baltic area, its transport system needs to increase traffic safety, efficiency, mobility and customer satisfaction across national borders, whilst reducing the environmental impact. To achieve this goal, Inteltrans project is working on modernizing higher education (VET) curricula for transport and traffic management professionals by addressing emerging development needs and by creating a joint Intelligent Transport and Traffic Management study module (15 ECTS) that will be piloted among international students.
The project results will be achieved by combining traditional and e-learning methods as well as by using a simulation environment. A significant emphasis will be put on the integration of IT and telecommunications technologies into the transport and traffic safety management programmes.
As a result, the project will create a study module thanks to which a greater number of employees will possess the skills and competences needed in the current international labour market. The methodology and materials developed by the project will be applicable and replicable outside the current partnership as well.
Partner budget: 208.836 EUR

1. Jointly developed harmonized and modernized Intelligent transport and traffic management module (15 ECTS) and teaching methodology focused on transport and traffic safety management.
The module takes into account labour market demands, regional differences, and relevant EU directives. The module will be used by partner organisations for both full-time students, distance learners and in-service training programme participants and will be disseminated to other transport education institutions in surrounding countries in the CB region in order to facilitate a common understanding and cooperation. Graduates of the harmonized and modernized module joining the workforce in the regional transport sector will significantly improve its quality and thus facilitate common understanding that will lead to smooth and safe cross-border transportation within the common transport area.
2. Teaching and study materials necessary to carry out the modules.
3. E-learning methodology and e-learning materials to carry out the modules, with the support of the e-learning platforms of the partners. Materials will include instructional videos, animations, and interactive exercises and will be structured using adaptive learning techniques, which take the needs of the individual into account.
4. Teaching methodology for joint use of the simulation tools.
5. Common study environment usage plan to enhance regional cooperation and a more efficient use of resources in each partner organisation. A traditional e-learning environment will be combined with simulation tools to facilitate consistent use by all three partners.
