Potential of transferring knowledge to host.
The applicant gained project management skills through both training-through-research as well as through specialised courses. During the time spent at the Universität Karlsruhe (TH), Germany, the applicant attended project management courses for architects as well as gained a certificate in “Project Management and Organisation”, focused on the needs of humanities and social sciences, after attending courses on basics of organisation, project management, leading of personal, innovation management. The applicant acquired practical management knowledge through activity in associations: event management while being student leader, management of international projects while being on the editorial board of the World Housing Encyclopedia project and of European projects while co-managing the initial Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship. The knowledge in project management will be useful for transfer at the host institution since project management courses are being offered and the applicant would be involved in co-ordination of these courses. The multi-, inter- and cross-disciplinary curriculum of the applicant will be of great help, since the project management courses are intended to be broad and not tailored for a certain discipline.
The knowledge acquired through experience on European schemes will be also useful for the host who plans courses in this regard. The applicant benefited of a TEMPUS scholarship during undergraduate studies, of a Marie Curie Host Fellowship about which a Personal Journey has been published by the career magazine Science NextWave and finally of the Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship after which this application is being made.
The applicant has knowledge of the process of writing and editing of books and other publications. During the Marie Curie Fellowship:
Since the host explicitly sponsors publication of books, this knowledge will be of help.
- a journal special issue has been edited and published,
- two journal special issues are in process of being edited,
- two books have been published,
- the editing process of a book has been started after agreeing with the publisher.
The knowledge of the applicant regarding constructions will be useful for courses at medium level the host has for qualified workers.
