|ABC Gates for Europe||http://abc4eu.com/||1.1.2014 0:00:00||31.12.2017 0:00:00||International RDI||3 Running||People travel and migrate. International movement is on the rise and so are the numbers of border crossings each year. In 2011 alone, there were over 700 million Schengen border crossings, and the estimate is that there will be an 80% increase by 2030. Thus, border crossings should be made as smooth and rapid as possible for everyday travelling without compromising security. ABC4EU (Automated Border Control Gates for Europe) is a 4-year, EU Framework Programme 7 (FP7) Project that began in January 2014.
At the moment the Automated Border Control Systems can be used by passengers with EU and Schengen ePassport recognizable by the microchip symbol. In the future, together with complementary legislation, also non-Schengen passengers will be able to use the ABC gate. The ABC gate compares the biometric data (e.g. facial image or fingerprints, etc.) from the passenger’s travel document onto the real-life equivalent. It also verifies the validity and reliability of the travel document. If the match is high enough, the passenger is let through from the gate.
The aim of ABC4EU is to make border checks more flexible and user-friendly for passengers by harmonising the functionalities of border check automation. Greater harmonisation should create a better passenger experience and encourage people to use ABC gates at border crossing points. ABC gates facilitate more fluent travelling by shortening queuing time. Harmonisation should affect many functionalities, biometrics, gate design and the border check process itself.
One of the main objectives of the project is to update and integrate current ABC systems and extend their use to future ePassports. Simultaneously, states can fight cross-border crime and illegal migration more efficiently, and provide a higher level of internal security. The system will also benefit different stakeholders, such as transport operators, as the increasing flow of travellers will be handled in an efficient way.||Laura Tarkkanen

Finnish society is changing. Today higher education institutions (HEI) play an essential role in society together with
work: creating new knowledge, transferring it to students, re-training employees and fostering innovations. However, stronger ties and connections between institutions and work is necessary and needed in order to implement competence-based education. This requires new way of thinking and new forms of interacting and working. In Finland, the common approaches to link the workplace with practice-oriented higher education have been work placement, workplace learning and thesis processes. In reality, it means that educational practices at HEIs make use of schoollike methods in trying to teach workplace practices. A new kind of approach is needed throughout the whole field of practice-oriented higher education.
The aims of the project are:
-to develop and disseminate the model of studyfying: recognizing and validating of learning at work. Studyfying does not include work placement.
-to formalize learning at work as part of the studies at HEI
-to recognize and disseminate new approaches to developing, planning and implementing workplace learning in higher education
-to develop a model of HEI – work -partnership, which enables combining workplace learning with studying resulting in graduation and employment
-to improve student services, which support educational equality and promote flexibility in transitions between
education and work
Methods that promote inclusion, social and cultural sustainability, well-being and ability to function are emphasized at all levels of the project work. The core results of the project are new flexible, integrative and connective models and tools for studyfying work in higher education.||ESR 2014-2020||498|
|Boosting innovative Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Regions for young entrepreneurs||1.4.2016 0:00:00||31.3.2020 0:00:00||International RDI||3 Running||Composed of EER (European Entrepreneurial Region) and non-EER regions, the project Boost EER addresses the challenges regional authorities face in optimizing structural funds to support young entrepreneurs in the regions due to 1) Lack of awareness or entrepreneurial competence both for local and regional authorities (LRAs) and the higher education institution (HEIs); 2) Fragmented actions of actors either operating in silos or duplication of efforts, 3) Uneven development and resources between outlying and centre areas of a region and 4) Limited funding provision or at risk of ineffective management of funds.
Boost EER aims to define paths and solution for partner regions enabling HEIs and the other Quadruple Helix actors to be a part of thriving entrepreneurship ecosystem supporting young entrepreneurship through improving 11 ESIF programmes in 10 diverse regions from FI, DK, UK, IE, ES, IT, DE, FR, PL and RO.
In the 2 years of interregional learning and 2 years of monitoring, Boost EER taps the pool of EER expertise and transfers the best practices through peer-learning, guided workshops and bottom-up approach empowering the LRAs, HEIs, business and young entrepreneurs to take ownership of the development and implementation of 10 action plans. Boost EER also constantly involves non-partner regions (in particular less-developed regions) to validate the transferability of the best practices for European upscale.
Each endorsed action plan is envisaged to improve the addressed ESIFs through: project pipelines for best practise importing (entrepreneurial university and startup support), adaption of multi- level governance, multi-funding or/and a evaluation tool which ultimately lead to growth and more jobs.
Specific objective: 1. To bench learn how HEIs transform themselves into Entrepreneurial universities to integrate education, RDI and entrepreneurship to foster young entrepreneurship and, 2. how regions can seize the active role entrepreneurial university contributes to the entrepreneurial discovery of the region.

|The Developer of Digital health and Welfare Services||http://rdi.arcada.fi/dediwe/en/||1.9.2015 0:00:00||28.2.2018 0:00:00||International RDI||3 Running||The Central Baltic region needs social and health care professionals with skills in developing new eHealth services. In the project (9/2015 – 5/2018), a new curriculum “The Developer of Digital Health and Welfare Services” is created for VETs and UASs.The curriculum serves the needs of students in VET/UASs and continuing education for professionals and offers eHealth care services to citizens.
The curriculum 30 ECTS is based on the Learning by Developing (LbD) model where students, professionals and teachers learn together in working life. This secures that the contents of studies correspond to the needs of the labor market. The studies take place mostly at the e-learning platform, combined with activities and cross-border cooperation.
The partners in Estonia, Latvia and Finland (4 VET/UASs) arranges a study unit in piloting the curriculum. In the pilot informants will be 80 VET/UAS and continuing education students (from ex. hospital). Students’ eHealth related competency is measured at the beginning. The content of the new curriculum is based on the measured competency EQF6 as well as the latest knowledge about the needs of the digital society. In the study unit, future professionals (IT, social and health care ) are developing their current competencies to match the needs of digital health care, taking into account the professional qualifications defined in the EQF level 6 as well as cultural differences in Central Baltic. To get comparative knowledge on curricular contents, the competency is measured again after the studies. In the next phase the curriculum can be spread to all health, social and IT study programs 27 and 5750 students in partner schools and possibility wider in Central Baltic and EU.
The results of the project are sustainable as the study programme and e-platform will be integrated into the curricular activities in the involved educational organizations.
The total budget of the project is 451412 euros, of which 347128 euros is from the Central Baltic program. The total budget for Laurea is 202 352 euros, of which 151764 euros is co-financing from the Central Baltic program.
