The project aims at fostering capacity building in the field of Smart Grids by the development of a harmonized, modular curriculum. Envisioned outcomes of this project are new, interdisciplinary master courses implemented at partner institutions in Africa, running laboratories, online courses, and an improved networking between the partners.
During a meeting at the European Project Center in Dresden our project was mentioned as an example for an Erasmus+ project. The meeting focused on informations regarding EU projects and in the presentation about Erasmus+ projects DAMOC was mentioned as one example of running Erasmus projects at TU Dresden. The Agenda of the meeting is available here (German).
We are happy to announce that the first master’s course in our project is available under the name “Structured M.Eng in Smart Grid Technology” at Stellenbosch University. More details are available at Stellenbosch University website.
Starting from the beginning of November until the beginning of December some future teaching staff members of our partners will have the chance to visit Karlstad University for a training activity. They will benefit from the knowledge exchange between all the participants and have the chance to learn more about data security, data privacy and its relation to smart grid from our colleague in Karlstad.
An article about the DAMOC project was published in the university newspaper (‘Dresdner Universitätsjournal’) of TU Dresden.
The full article is available here in German (page 7).
Our second project meeting took place in the wonderful city of Dar es Salaam at the University of Dar es Salaam from the 31st July to 4th of August.
