Project summary

The main aim of this Joint European Project proposal “ Creation of university-enterprise cooperation networks for education on sustainable technologies “ is to enhance university enterprise cooperation in BA, RS and MK by offering retraining courses to staff members from industry on sustainable technology.

The consortium consists of 3 EU universities : KaHo Sint-Lieven Gent Belgium (grantholder), Trier University of Applied Sciences Germany and Vienna Technical University of Technology Austria. The WB partner universities are the University of Novi Sad ( co-coordinator) and Nis in Serbia, the universities of East-Sarejevo and Tuzla in Bosnia-Herzegovina and the universities of Skopje and Stip in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Furthermore several Chambers of Commerce and Enterprises offer an added value to the project proposal. The problem analysis indicates very clearly that actually there is a big lack in WB industry on developing sustainable technology in order to improve environmental protection in the three participating partner countries BA, RS and MK. In a first phase the accent will be put on an inventory of the existing knowledge in industry regarding sustainable technology. Also experts of EU universities will carry out a short study visit to the partner country universities involved in this proposal. This will be followed by a retraining and updating session on sustainable technology in each EU university. Emphasis will be put on practical implementation of “ zero emission “ policy in EU countries. It is very important that WB partner university staff members are retrained in the most modern technologies. Afterwards WB partner country universities will use the newly gained experience to develop new curricula for retraining industry staff members. Several course development workshops will be organised. The courses will be developed by the WB partner university country staff members. All courses will be in full accordance with ECTS demands. It is planned to develop 4 courses who will focus on sustainability, zero emission technologies, material and energy management flows and case studies. All courses will be modular and will be tailor-made in order to satisfy the needs of industry. All course material will be evaluated by trainees of industry and by the individual experts involved in this project. Received feedback will be used to the improve quality of the developed courses.

Dissemination is an important element in the project implementation. An up-to date website will be developed and several dissemination conferences will be organised in order to present the project results to a wider audience. A dissemination booklet will contain the results of all achieved outcomes.

Sustainability of project results will be focused on the development of a strategic plan for the retraining of industry staff in sustainable technology. This will be a joint activity of all involved Partner country universities in cooperation with the participating Chambers of Commerce and Industry. Quality control and monitoring will consist of the elaboration of an annual internal quality report by Trier University and an annual external quality report by both individual experts involved in this project. A strong management structure will assure a smooth running project in order to realise the project activities. Therefore every six months a planning and coordination visit will be organised.

The proposed project proposal fits very well in the development strategy of the reform of higher education in BA, RS and MK. University-Enterprise cooperation is an essential element in the further implementation of the Bologna process in WB countries. Also the adaptation of environmental standards in BA, RS and MK will bring the WB partner countries closer to EU. This will enable further steps in the pre-accession process of the WB partner countries involved in this proposal.

Objectives

1. To bring new curricula on sustainable industry for the staff from industries involved in the project
2. To adopt expirience from EU partners on sustainable industry in the newly developed curricula
3. To bring the knowledge of staff from industry closer to standards in EU partner countries
4. To bring the strategy for education for the staff from industry on sustainble industry issue

Abstract
The pharmaceutical industry supply chain covers drug research, development, manufacture, distribution and application through a range of healthcare services, together with all the ancillary businesses that help these different stages function effectively. Fundamentally, the pharmaceutical industry is a business that’s about health, and therefore is about people. Most manufacturers and suppliers are touting their green initiatives with either “green” products or packaging that help save energy, reduce waste or exhibit solutions that reduce or manage their energy consumption. Sustainability and pharmaceutical packaging can appear to be at odds with one another. Traditionally, in pharmaceuticals – safety, efficacy and quality have been at the forefront of every initiative - not environmental friendliness. In pharmaceutical packaging, you must adhere to stringent regulations that require material traceability, good manufacturing practices (GMPs), consistent quality, product protection. The global financial and economic crisis has clearly shown that short-term thinking and actions can have dramatic consequences. Aligning business to sustainable success has been top priority of pharmaceutical companies for a long time, and this strategy is proving effective even in a difficult environment. Their overriding goal are to operate both successfully and sustainably. To achieve this, they want to achieve commercial success on the basis of solid business models in a way that is compatible with meeting the needs of employees and society and protecting the environment and natural resources.

Abstract
This chapter describes the renewable energy sources: energy of surrounding, geothermal energy, Wind energy and Solar energy. In the first part the basic of energy are given, also the classification and definition of energy sources. The renewable energy sources have an increasing share of the total energy mix, because they have advantages over non-renewable. Energy of surrounding (land, water and air) is used for heating by heat pumps. In the part 4.2. the geothermal energy are describes. Geothermal energy has great potential for heating and electrical energy productions. There are two systems for heating (horizontal and vertical). For electrical energy productions several systems are applied: dry system, flash stream and binary cycle, and they are described. The benefits and disadvantages of geothermal energy are discussed, and state of this energy in WB Countries. The Wind energy is practically clean energy. Wind energy is used for conversion in the mechanical energy or for electricity production using the wind power. The wind power may be different strings and structures, onshore or offshore wind farms. They may be two or three blades. They can be horizontal or vertical in the relation of the position of rotor axis rotation and wind directions. The main drawback is the lack of suitable locations and noise. The WB countries have a huge wind potentials, bat they haven’t electricity production by energy of wind. The Solar energy is also clean energy, and they can be used for heating (solar collectors), or for electricity productions. Electricity is produced by the photovoltaic cells, a huge number of them is photovoltaic farms or solar stations. In Solar station the Solar energy are focused with reflections table and can be used for heating of fluid (water) and vapor productions, which can be used for electricity productions by turbines. Basic lack of use of Solar energy is a good insolations. In the WB countries the Solar energy is mostly used for heating, and they haven’t the Solar Farms.
