The 3rd HEIBus Partner Meeting was organized by Technical University of Cluj-Napoca from 21 to 22 March 2018. Representatives of all five HEIs, e.g. all WP leaders, participated in this meeting and the company representatives were present or took part virtually. The agenda of the meeting included presentations of all work packages and three workshops, which focused on the cooperation models proposed by the project. During the meeting, all partners had opportunity to present updates on their project activities so far. An other important aspect was to plan the next activities on the project in the near future.
After one year of the start, HEIBus project has advanced very well and all WP leaders showed good results so far. By now, three Multidisciplinary real life problem solving (WP3) projects were implemented in the autumn semester of 2017 and three Expert level real life problem solving (WP4) projects are in progress with the deadline in May 2018. Flexible Student Mentoring by Companies Model (WP5) has started in all participant HEIs, student groups and company partners have been selected and some tailored activities have already been implemented.
Following the fruitful partnership meetings during the two days, TUCLUJ hosts also organized visits to the International Exhibition of Research, Innovation and Inventions PRO INVENT on the first day and to Jucu Bosch Plant on the second day.
