The value of the Project was PLN 145,799.87, while the co-financing of the Project from 4E was PLN 141,425.87.
The project was implemented under Action 3.4 Management in higher education institutions under the Knowledge Education Development Operational Program 2014–2020, thanks to the cooperation of the Gdańsk Tech Library, IT Services Center, Mathematics and Distance Learning Center and the Foreign Languages Center. As part of the project, seventeen free training courses were held for young teaching or teaching and research staff, aimed at increasing information, IT, language and so-called soft-skills.
Some of the training sessions took place in several editions so that it could appeal to the largest possible group of participants. The skills and competences acquired thanks to the training were reflected in the practice of teaching classes by the staff of Gdańsk University of Technology, which primarily contributed to the improvement of the quality of education.
The project was implemented from March 2018 to October 2019. The participants of the training were people employed at Gdańsk Tech who, on the day of commencement of participation in the project, were under 35 years of age and at the same time had a doctoral degree or were undergoing third-cycle studies.
