The new technological tools are utilized to improve the applicability of education, reform the curriculum and learning paths, and to implement multi-professional cooperation as well as to promote employment, support labor mobility and recruitment, and on-the-job and lifelong learning.

The project creates an intelligent learning environment (ILE) to enhance the skills acquisition of biomedical and nursing surgery professionals. This type of learning environment gives the opportunity for individual to deepen their theoretical knowledge independently of time and place, and to practice beforehand the same processes and use the same tools and equipment used in real working life. ILE environment will improve the availability and quality of online education and increase the participation of international cooperation. The project is funded by the European Social Fund during the period 2019-2021.
