Project description:

The project is a transnational cooperation based on a multilateral partnership between higher education institutions from Bulgaria, Germany, and Romania. The project proposal is a joint project to strengthen the relationship between CBS in the broader economic and social environment that will build an innovative network to share gaming approaches and good practice in logistics and transport training.

The project aims to support the modernization, accessibility and internationalization of higher education in partner countries by introducing innovative approaches to learning. In order to achieve the main goal of the project, an innovative network for practical training of students in the field of logistics and transport through gaming approaches will be developed, which will lead to the establishment of a permanent cooperation with the European universities. At the beginning of the project will be developed a methodology for training through game approaches in the logistics and transport training.

The main objective of the project proposal is to develop and share gaming approaches and good practices in logistics and transport training as well as to disseminate innovative ideas by building an interactive network. The project is a transnational cooperation based on a multilateral partnership between higher education institutions (CBS) from Bulgaria, Germany, and Romania.
