Analyzing the EU partner contents and training methodology (WP2)

In February of 2020 EU partners provided materials for reading before the planned trainings in Spring 2020 (General readings).

Materials for basic study before trainings are available and analysed by UA partners. Link to the project Repository: Links to materials online.

When on-site training became impossible because of unexpected quarantine, EU partners enlarged the online materials (partly with those prepared for training) to provide UA partners with available information for adapting the Master’s programmes. UA partners got access to the books and recommendations to the development of the courses on security in various fields. UA partners could participate in the open course on Security in Baltic Region has been provided by Tartu University, in series of lectures on “Security, Democracy and the Digital World” by Ex-President of Estonia Toomas Hendrik Ilves, and joined the conference “Hybrid Threats in the Context of EU security”.

Content analysis was divided into two stages:

  1. during Spring 2020 after the unexpected quarantine
  2. during Spring 2021 when it was clear that no business trips would be allowed till the end of 2021.

EU recommendations on the curricula design and content of the courses were studied when preparing for study visits and later applied for modernising the curriculum’s design and content.

EU partners (P1-P4) provided a considerable set of materials on hybrid threats. This became the core of the Hybrid Threats Glossary which was compiled and translated in Ukrainian by UA partners, reviewed by EU partners and accepted within the determined Quality Assurance procedure (act. 4.2) as a basic material for new and updated courses. It became the first documented contribution of joint development within the WARN environment (dev. 5.5). The Glossary was not a planned deliverable but it emerged as a natural result of the processing of the huge materials on countering hybrid threats provided mainly by P1 (New Educational Content).

Consortium members shared knowledge gained within opportunities provided by EU partners.
