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


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: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
