July 04th - 07th, 2022
University of Technology and Education - The University of Danang
In the framework of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building MONTUS project, the 13 partners are pleased to meet again onsite in Danang for the 6th Workshop. The goal is to develop cloud computing, big data and artificial Intelligence for environmental sciences and to promote its education.
The team members are involved in the creation of courses that will be part of a new master degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Engineering and Technologies in Hanoi, Vietnam. The project went from the steps of the accreditation of the master, to the writing of the syllabus, passing by the organization of thematic and practical workshops applied to the environment as that one. MONTUS delivers practical solutions deployed at three basic levels of cloud computing (infrastructure, plate-form and deployment) in the partner countries with computer hardware funded by the project and installed in Hanoi, Phnom Penh and Pathum Thani.
One objective of this workshop in Danang is to continue the production of pedagogical resources to implement the master. The finalization of a book describing the issues, the competences to be acquired and the pedagogical approaches to be implemented to support them is at the heart of each work session. The target is to start the publication process of this reference book linked to MONTUS. Key use cases on the different platforms funded by the project are also discussed in order to highlight the potential of effective processing of massive data for environmental sciences on CPU and GPU architectures.
Some project management meetings contribute also to consolidate the administrative and financial issues and processes related to a European project funded by the European Union, with theoretical presentations such as practical workshops and appointment with project managers from each partner. Partners from Thailand shared their best practices in the field of project management.
This project has a heart to strengthen the links between education, research and environmental engineering. Beyond the capacity building in the field of education, our project has the merit of positioning our disciplines into a major issue of contemporary science.
As a reminder, MONTUS is financed by the European Union One million euros in the framework of Erasmus+ Capacity Building. This program funds « transnational partnerships between educational institutions and organizations, training and youth programs in order, promoting cooperation and development ». MONTUS funded for 4 years, gathered around the University of Toulouse 2 Jean Jaures, the National school of architecture (ENSA Toulouse), the International School of Information Processing Sciences (EISTI, Pau campus), University of Ferrara in Italy, university Brussels Vrije, Faculty of Engineering and Technology of Vietnam National University (Hanoi), the Hanoi Architectural University, the Nong Lam university of Ho Chi Minh City, the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT – Pathumthani, Thailand), the Walailak University (Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand) and two Cambodian institution in Phnom Penh: the Royal University of Fine Art and the Institute of Technology of Cambodia. Three associated partners join MONTUS: French Agency of Francophonie (AUF – Asia Pacific, Hanoi), Meteorological Environment Earth Observation (MEEO – Italy), Institute of Agriculture and Environment (IAE, Hanoi) and HUPI cloud computing society (France). In total it’s 60 members who work for MONTUS during 4 years with height workshops alternatively in Europe and in Asia.
