Erasmus + CBHE WORK4CE Pilot Teaching at KU Leuven

The WORK4CE Pilot Teaching (part of the Erasmus + CBHE WORK4CE project “Cross-domain competences for healthy and safe work in the 21st century”) was held in parallel with the Euclides 2024: (Personal) Energy Efficient Mobility in the Future at the De Nayer Campus of Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) on 11.03.2024 – 15.03.2024 in Leuven, Belgium. This event, which brought together around 90 students of various nationalities with engineering backgrounds from several universities, was an important step towards innovative education and sustainable mobility ideas for the future. For the Pilot Teaching, several presentations were given by some of WORK4CE’s partners. Each of them brought a unique perspective on the topic under discussion:

  • Carsten Wolff (FHDo) delved into the interdependencies between smart city, smart mobility and smart energy, offering a holistic view of our urban future.
  • Galyna Tabunshchyk (NUZP) explored the potential of digital twins to improve the efficiency of electric vehicles, highlighting cutting-edge technology in automotive developments.
  • Olena Verenych (KNUCA) led a brainstorming workshop that triggered creativity and innovation among participants.
  • Kanan Hasanov (AzUAC) spoke about Digital Ecosystems for Sustainable Mobility of the Future, emphasising the role of technology in green transport solutions.
  • Carolina Cruz (UPV/EHU) presented the Sustainability Canvas: Visualizing Personal Mobility’s Impact, a tool to understand and visualise the impact on sustainability.
  • Maider Iturrondobeitia (UPV/EHU) analysed Life Cycle Assessment and Transport Systems, underlining the importance of assessing environmental impacts throughout the life cycle of transport systems.
  • Jon Aretxaga (UPV/EHU) examined the Economic Impact of mobility alternatives, offering an insight into the financial implications of sustainable transport solutions.

A highlight of this event was the presentation of Board Games created by the students. These Board Games, made with different materials, showed the great creativity and talent of the participants, serving also as a tangible integration of the concepts addressed throughout the lectures. These games enabled the students to conceptualise and visualise the complexity of the interaction between smart cities, sustainable mobility and energy efficiency.
