ICT-LEAP e-education project launched to link universities worldwide

11.01.2006


The European Commission, Directorate General for Education and Culture, congratulates Umeå University on the award of ICT-LEAP project, coordinated by Dr. Adi Anani. The project assists MEDA partners in accessing EU e-education technologies and opportunities.



The European Commission Head of Unit, Tempus – Erasmus Mundus, Mr. Augusto González, has warmly congratulated the successful application ICT-LEAP, Information and Communication Technologies Learning Pentagram. Apart from Umeå University, the consortium includes the University of Dortmund, Germany, two universities in Palestine and one in Jordan. Two university presidents are directly involved in the project. ICT-LEAP aims at establishing an e-learning educational network of MEDA and EU countries, allowing their universities to cope with each other developments. It will provide technologies and training, and establish e-learning centers. Workshops will be held to cover technical and pedagogical issues. MEDA countries are linking to appropriate global educational possibilities, contributing to regional development and stability. ICT-LEAP is a part of this process and will later expand to other countries and regions.

Dr. Anani acknowledges the support of the Electronic group and Head of Department of Applied Physics and Electronics at Umeå University and the ICT-LEAP consortium. Dr. Regis Cabral assisted in the application writing technicalities.


Tempus, the Trans-European mobility scheme for university studies, enables EU universities to cooperate with those in Western Balkans, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and the Mediterranean partner countries. Established in 1990 after Berlin Wall fall, Tempus has been renewed three times. The Tempus program is meant to enhance the need for understanding between cultures, and for the European Union to work together with its partner countries in all fields.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
