Erasmus+ Project: Resilience in Times of Crisis

Partners Empowerment for Pandemien - an Erasmus+ Project

Training to Strengthen Mental Resilience

Posted on

At the end of June 2022, the project partners of the “Empowerment for Pandemias” project, funded under Erasmus+, met at the UMIT TIROL private university campus. Under the motto “For Stronger Organizations and a Stronger You”, a continuing education program to strengthen individual and organizational resilience in times of crisis for health sector professions will be developed by 2024.

“We are pleased about the positive response from the Agency for Education and Internationalization (OeAD) to fund our project idea for three years,” says Ass.-Prof. Dr. Margit Raich, who holds the project management on behalf of UMIT TIROL university. “We are a highly motivated and interdisciplinary team that will set up this training in close cooperation with various stakeholder groups in the partner countries,” reports the project leader. The implementation is carried out together with the University of Gloucestershire, Deggendorf Institute of Technology, European Academy Bolzano, Hafelekar Corporate Consulting Schober GmbH, and the Portuguese partner Immersive Lab Ldt.

During the two-day workshop, the target group profile was sharpened, and the cornerstones for data collection were laid. In interviews, it is necessary to identify the competencies relevant from the perspective of those affected, which are required for successful crisis management at the individual and organizational level. Here, experiences around CoVid19 will be incorporated, to be transferred into innovative learning experiences.

A mix of various learning environments will be used. With the establishment of an assessment tool, individual and organizational resources can be evaluated. The project team will develop a web-based training program that enables self-determined learning through micro-learning units. These will be complemented with online seminars and in-person sessions. Another focus is on the development of simulated crisis case studies, based on real scenarios, which help participants learn more efficient ways of dealing with complex problem solutions and coping strategies.
