HIFL of DSPU is a highly motivated consortium partner because most of the teaching staff and students have personally suffered from hybrid threats. They have experience of a wide range of hybrid influences from information pressure to direct military actions; the proximity to the hybrid warfare epicenter gives the project participants a better opportunity to explore the techniques, forms and methods of the hybrid attacks. As the members of a pedagogical educational institution, the project participants have the opportunity to introduce the system of counteraction to the threats into the student and social environments and track its implementation at the level of secondary education and colleges. The chosen MSc programme for adaptation is Education (History, Practical Psychology) which is critical for civic resilience. HIFL will create courses syllabi, new educational content and contribute to the development of the new hybrid teaching methodology. It will participate in the networking activities of the WARN-community via its Hub of Excellence, endorse and deliver the adapted Master level programmes and LLL courses. An important task of HIFL is dissemination of the results in the Eastern Ukraine – the region suffers from frequent hybrid attacks.
