About the project
HU-VOLUTION arises as a Cooperation Partnership project aiming to contribute to improve High Education (HE) through fostering the New European Bauhaus (NEB) principles among habitat designers, while breaking gaps among HE system and labour market. The project constitutes a perfect opportunity to foster the European HE system to bring an added value to the society, preparing future professionals to design more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive spaces where we live, while at the same time promoting lifelong learning on green skills through the use of digital educative approaches.
Awareness of European society and HE system about the necessity of a human-centric approach on habitat design to address current world challenges expressed in the NEB.
Define the necessary competencies and skills for designers towards more sustainable, aesthetic and inclusive places, aligned with the NEB initiative for the Society5.0; and gather it in a Joint Curriculum tailored for HE organisations.
Launch a pioneer training resource, free and open to any HE organization and their past/current/future students, on the three key aspects to achieve the principles of the NEB and Society 5.0: life-centric perspective, functionality and sustainability.
Give support to European universities to adapt their current training offer to up/reskill their students for the future habitat design, through lifelong learning courses based on the developed materials.
Break borderlines among industry and HE system, creating common methods and skills that will allow to increase the quality of both the HE offers and the industry performance, and to build capacity to work transnationally and across sectors.
Developed promotional resources and activities that will support the achievement of project results, while ensuring a wide project impact.
Improvement of the HE system, the readiness for the green transition, or the contribution to the digital learning transformation.
Design of the Joint Curriculum followed the Learning Outcomes Approach according to the principles of ECTS so as to support lifelong learning, the flexibility of learning pathways and the assessment, recognition and accumulation of the learning outcomes of each individual.
HU-VOLUTION training resources and practical exercises (coursebook, video pills, game-based exercises, etc.), adapted to EQF.
HU-VOLUTION e-training platform, free and massively available, where future students will do the proposed training and get a micro-credential.
A guide for the implementation of HU-VOLUTION results by HE organisations, based on a training test experience carried out in the framework of the project.

When it comes to the world of design and product-development, there are two terms that you’ve no doubt heard thrown around: Design Thinking and Human-Centred Design. Both are extremely popular when it comes to problem solving and creating the best product or service...
