The Administrative & Management Educational Program will be given via the webinar platform. The total duration will be of 6 days (approximately 16 hours): 2 days (approx. 5 hours) will be shared with the Technical Educational Program. They are scheduled in March 2018, and will include more specific content for managers and administrative personnel. Each LA partner will participate to the Administrative & Management Educational Program with 10 Managers / Administrative personnel units. The program is open to the participation also of interested academic personnel.
The UNIFI Coordinator will be prof. Marco Bellandi (Dipartimento di Scienze per l’Economia e l’Impresa DISEI).
Stay tuned for more info!
EACEA has completed the assessment of the UMETECH Technical Implementation Report submitted this November, and notified us that it has been APPROVED and qualified as FAIR.
There are some minor flaws that we should address soon in the early January before proceeding in the activities already planned, but our project is proceeding very well!
Congrats to every partners!
From 14 to 19 of November, NEMECH and MICC, center of excellence of the University of Florence, hosted a delegation from the Paraguayan Universidad Nacional de Itapùa and Universidad Nacional del Este for the UMETECH study tour program.
It was a great experience to enhance the Italian-Paraguay academic network and to meet the Paraguayan academic staff involved in the project’s program.
During the study tour, the University of Florence academic staff held a course on computer vision applied to cultural heritage, together with a practical workshop. In particular the participants had the chance to learn
basic and advanced computer vision techniques in order to develop a mobile application able to recognize and give information about objects surrounding the user. The course has also included a demo of the Cultural Heritage projects developed by the NEMECH staff and three lab sessions on SIFT feature matching, Convolutional Neural Networks and OpenCV on Android mobile devices.
There were also opportunities for socialization between the two cultures, experiences and knowledges (with great Italian food and wine).
From 13 to 17 of November, Lille IMT Douai hosted a delegation from the Universidad Nacional de Misiones and Universidad Provincial de Cordoba from Argentina for the UMETECH study tour program.
In this training context the students had the opportunity to attend 3D mesh processing frontal courses, become familiar with the virtual reality platform IRCICA and attend the presentation of Innovation Research in the Digital and Interactive Visual Environment.
Moreover, Argentine students have visited the city Of Lille enjoying its cultural riches.
Between 7 and 12 September 2017, colleagues from Universidad Inca Garcilaso de la Vega and Universidad de Piura visited the Center for Advanced Research on New Materials, Products and Innovative Processes – CAMPUS, at University Politehnica of Bucharest, for a study and experience exchange tour. Firstly, during a joint, on-site and webinar framework, they pursue with investigating multimedia classification techniques.
The courses were complemented by visits at the research labs and with hands-on sessions for some real-world machine based applications. Through both fundamental and practical implementations, participants achieved engineering and research skills for developing high-tech cultural heritage applications, specific to each need. The visit tour concluded with an official reception at the Embassy of the Republic of Peru, where future cooperation was discussed and a cooperation agreement between the universities was signed.
The first course for the Administrative Manager training program given by Michele Valentino about the Project Management and Knowledge Sharing Application (PMKSA) will precede the last webinar courses for TRACK B (Multimedia classification by Bogdan Ionescu) and TRACK C (3D scan matching & registration by Mohamed Daoudi).
The second tranche of courses delivered by UMETECH is upcoming!
Claudio Baecchi, researcher at MICC University of Florence, will lecture Mobile Programming 2, available via webinar on 10, 11, 12 and 14 July 2017.
“Pre-processing of visual information” and “Multimedia content representation” will be held by Bogdan Ionescu (University Politehnica of Bucharest) respectively on 17, 18 and from 24 to 27 July 2017.
The UMETECH crew is ready to provide the first two courses of the Academic Staff Training Program!
The first one, 3D Modeling and Scanning, lectured by Mohamed Daoudi (IMT Lille Douai), will be available via webinar on 22 and 23 June and 3,4 and 5 July 2017.
Mobile Programming, lectured by Andrea Ferracani and Simone Ercoli, will be held on 26,27,28 and 29 June 2017.
UMETECH was successfully presented at the Italian Embassy in Buenos Aires. The project is co-funded by the European Union (Erasmus+ Programme).
This happened during the Kick-off conference of UMETECH project that is taking place in these days in Argentina.
