A capacity building and staff development programme in the field of renewable energy will be developed. The main focus of the activities will be on developing human resources and upgrading skills and capacities in the field by providing exposure to practical training, experiments and equipment. Actual training will be offered on experiment and laboratory running, technical assistance and counselling services which will be organized for professors, researchers, students, engineers and technicians. Partners will implement specific training in solar energy as its participating laboratory has a long-standing expertise and necessary infrastructure in this field. This will be beneficial for capacity building in RE where training on different photovoltaic technologies and procedures to do with solar energy will be provided. Furthermore, the access to information, skills and training of Jordanian partner universities will enable their faculty and researchers to evaluate existing RE curricula and effectively redesign the courses to include state-of-the-art-technologies. This will also greatly assist in establishing a RE training centre as a local resource and training point in Jordan. Opportunities for training and study visits will be provided by all EU partners in the project. Delivery of training courses will be in traditional face-to-face format in addition to eLearning environment. EU partners will help Jordanian partner universities to adapt to changing needs in their systems required by the Bologna process. Activities will include:
1. Development of Long-Term Capacity Building Plan;
2. Establishment of RE Training Centre at UoJ;
3. Selection of Training Staff;
4. Academic and technical Visits to EU;
5. Design of Training Materials for Training Workshops (Traditional and Online);
6. Organization of Training Workshops at Each Jordanian Partner University.
Further details on MUREE training will be provided here as the project progresses.
