Contribute to the digital transformation of education by offering microcredentials in ITC.

Stimulating innovative learning and teaching practices

ALLIES (Digital Training Tools in Steel Structure Integrity) is a 24-month project (from February 2022 to January 2024) funded by ERASMUS+ programme. ALLIES focuses on the development of new digital tools to offset the lack of skills of engineering professionals in the use of digital tools for design, analysis and inspection of metal structures. Therefore, ALLIES project seeks to contribute to the reduction of the skills mismatches between the labour market requirements and graduates, through the development of a new modular postgraduate course. This will target steel structures construction, using new online innovative digital tools for teaching, learning and assessment, as well as strengthen higher education teachers’ digital skills. Hence, promoting digital transformation by developing innovative digital pedagogies in order to improve and harmonize online teaching.


Develop a new postgraduate programme study for improving teachers digital and technical skills;

Contribute to the digital transformation of education by offering micro-credentials in the field of ITC, and new methodologies for distance and blended teaching, to the teachers from HE;

Provide digital environment for teaching, learning and assessment in the education process;

Increase job positions of postgraduates (industrial, civil and mechanical engineers) by offering new micro-credentials, related to the integrity of steel structures (design and inspection) recurring to fast, distance and blended learning in digital environment;

Harmonize education among HE institutions among Europe by integrating the ALLIES programme study at the partner universities in the project, by offering to the teachers the opportunity to interact with students and teachers from other countries.
