InnoLAND project officially launched!
We are proudly announcing that the project InnoLAND, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union is officially launched at project kick-off meeting on 3 November 2020! In this project which is led by our Delegate from Lithuania Gintaras Stauskis, professor at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (Vilnius Tech) Lithuania, IFLA Europe is a partner together with Aalto University Finland, Le Notre Institute Netherlands, Szent Istvan University Hungary, University of Evora Portugal and Technische Universitaet Wien Austria. Participation of various partners from all over Europe in this project will ensure a balanced opinion about Landscape Architecture Education.
The objectives of INNNOLAND project are:
- To set up a Common Training Framework (CTF) as a basis for European Landscape Architecture Education and as one important precondition of automatic recognition of landscape architects in the EU.
- To set up on this basis a pan-European quality standard for Landscape Architecture study programmes and harmonising Landscape Architecture education in Europe on master level.
- To develop an exemplar master study programme framework for Vilnius Gediminas Technical University and other higher education institutions in line with the European Common Training Framework.
The outcomes of InnoLAND project can be used for the needs of the profession inside the EU and also for whole Europe (COE area,therefore,all members of IFLA Europe will get an added value from this project. IFLA Europe as an organisation of professionals is mainly engaged in the first part of the project—developing a Common Training Framework. This means to establish one framework for Landscape Architecture training that will encompass education, practice and professionaldevelopment based on different education documents which are partly existing and partly missing, In the EU this may be a precondition for the automaticrecognition of our professionals. IFLA Europe will be the responsible partnerfor this work package. IFLA Europe representativesthat will be active in this project are Marina Cervera (AEP Spain) and FritzAuweck (BAK Germany). Fritz Auweck will also peer review the results of the whole project. The project will last 24 months.
