The education package is intended for use at post-secondary level, either at undergraduate or higher education at universities and universities, through shorter courses and / or in other ways aimed at professionals. We see that the educational package can be a good fit in areas such as humsam,engineering, legal and professional specialists
Expected results and effects
Based on our purpose and goal with the preliminary study, we have gained a positive view of the interest and the need to develop an educational package for standardization, accreditation and intellectual property rights for universities and university colleges. Three University has expressed their interest in participating in the project. Several universities have either initiated a process to determine the interest in participation or are partly interested depending on the framework ofthe project, for example. budget, what skills are needed, funding level, etc.
Planned approach and implementation
The outcome of the preliminary study has given us more insights as to what aspects we need to take into account in order to achieve the desired effect, such as: Should the educational material be directed towards postgraduate studies or undergraduate education? a. There is potential in both tracks but different type of effect. In the undergraduate it is harder to get the package into the regular course. b. Within graduate programs it is easier to get the training package into regular courses, but the effect may be worse as there is limited time for the researchers to attend courses etc.
