BIP project “Modern logistics and transport solutions”

The Erasmus+ program is actually a complex of various programs aimed at developing education primarily in the countries that form the EU, but also in countries that are not members of this union. Some news among the projects implemented within the framework of Erasmus+ are the BIP (Blended Intensive Programmes) projects. These are relatively short educational programs that involve the participation of universities from different countries, within the framework of which short direct mobility of students and teachers is implemented, as well as distance learning for project participants.

The University of Szeged (Hungary) was one of the first initiators of organizing such a project. As a result of discussions with partners, it was decided to jointly organize a BIP project called “Modern logistics and transport solutions”. In addition to the University of Szeged, the project involved the Vilnius College of Technology and Design (Lithuania), the University of Novi Sad (Serbia), the Polytechnic University of Timisoara (Romania), as well as two universities from Poland: the Warsaw University of Life Sciences and the Silesian University of Technology.

As noted above, the BIP project consisted of a virtual component, during which faculty from the identified universities taught students remotely. Such classes lasted from March 4 to March 15, 2024.

Aleksander Sładkowski took part in the project, as a teacher, as well as PhD student Komil Turaev and intern dr. Assem Utegenova, as listeners.
