Jan 22, 2013

The University’s Centre for Disaster Resilience  at the School of the Built Environment  has teamed up with institutions in the Russian Federation to enhance the quality and relevance of built environment education.

The three-year research project – CEN-EAST Reformation of the Curricula on Built Environment in the Eastern Neighbouring Area – has secured €998,601 of funding from the Tempus EU Programme.

The key aim is to upgrade the curricula relating to the built environment in the universities of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine to ensure that building and civil engineering students possess the relevant skills for an international labour market.

The first meeting of CEN-EAST took place in Bologna, Italy, in December 2012.

The Salford team includes : Professor Dilanthi Amaratunga, Professor Richard Haigh & Dr Kaushal Keraminiyage, who are happy to be contacted if any colleagues wish to find out more..
