CybPhys Project: Development of practically-oriented student-centered education in the area of Cyber-Physical Systems


The main objective of the “CybPhys” Project is to upgrade undergraduate and postgraduate-level curricula and study programs in the Belarusian and Ukrainian academic institutions in the area of Cyber-Physical Systems modelling and simulation according to the Bologna practices.

The “CybPhys” project aims to introduce novel curricula in practical-oriented modelling and simulation of Cyber Physical Systems in various innovative physical, mathematical and engineering areas for High-Tech industries. This goal will be realized through the enactment of close collaboration with professional associations, High-Tech companies and research institutions in Belarus and Ukraine that will guide in analyzing the current labor market needs. Further, “CybPhys” aims to implement novel ICT tools in various Higher Education contexts, through networking activities that are embedded in the labor market needs and enhance the quality and relevance of Higher Education.

This domain is especially significant, due to the fact that CPS are able to deliver cross-domain solutions with reduced time-to-market. The application of CPS can yield significant financial benefits, and contribute significantly growth in sectors critical to Europe’s economy and competitiveness, as well as to Europe’s ‘new digital transformation’.

The project will result in the development of new didactic materials (e.g. e-Books, guides to laboratory works, lectures), novel learning and teaching methodologies, as well as pedagogical approaches for integrating ICT into the curricula will be developed, for example, flexible learning, blended courses, virtual and real mobility and acquisition of innovative tools.

This project’s partnership includes ten academic and research institutions from five European member states including Belarusian State University, Riga Technical University, KU Leuven, the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence, Mozyr State Pedagogical University, Chernihiv Polytechnic National University, Kryvyi Rih National University, Francisk Skorina Gomel State University, Kharkiv National Automobile and Highway University and the Institute for Nuclear Problems of Belarusian State University.

The “CybPhys” project has received funding under the Erasmus+ Framework KA2- Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices – Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education.
