CROP Project: A Learning Journey at the Crossroads of Innovation and Sustainability

The CROP (Creativite rises opportunity for partnership) project aims to offer a unique and transformative learning experience, focusing on highly topical and relevant issues for the future of Europe. The master’s program, structured in flexible modules, will focus on five key areas and will have the following primary objectives:

  1. Equip students with certified knowledge and skills (Open Digital Badges – ODB) that can be used in the cultural and creative industry (CCI) labor market and in the development of their own business ideas.
  2. Encourage HEI teachers to integrate new teaching methodologies into their curricula.
  3. Promote local and civic engagement to strengthen community networks.
  4. Explore current issues:
  • New European Bauhaus: We will explore the principles and visions of the New European Bauhaus, an initiative aimed at rethinking design and architecture in a sustainable and inclusive way.
  • Green New Deal: The Green New Deal represents an ambitious plan for the decarbonization of Europe and the transition to a circular economy.
  • Urban Strategies for Community Engagement: Active community participation is essential for the success of any urban regeneration project.
  • Urban Regeneration: European cities face complex challenges, such as aging infrastructure, urban desertification, and climate change.
  • Gamification: Gamification, the application of game principles in non-game contexts, is a powerful tool for learning and motivation.
  1. Share best practices and scalable and/or replicable solutions in other contexts/territories.

A Unique Learning Experience Starting in October

Starting in October 2024, the CROP master’s program will commence, offering students a unique opportunity to delve into the key themes of the project and develop advanced skills. The program will be characterized by its flexibility, allowing students to personalize their learning path based on their interests and goals.

A Focus on Local Challenges and Sustainable Developmen

A central aspect of the CROP program will be the focus on local challenges and the search for innovative and sustainable solutions.

Collaboration between Universities, Profit, Third Sector, and Cultural and Creative Enterprises

The CROP project will promote collaboration between various stakeholders in the territory, including universities, profit-making companies, third sector organizations, and cultural and creative enterprises. This synergy will allow for the development of more effective and inclusive solutions to local challenges, fostering the exchange of knowledge and skills between different sectors.

An Opportunity for the Future

The CROP project represents a unique opportunity for students to acquire advanced skills and develop a critical perspective on crucial issues for the future of Europe. Through an innovative and interactive approach, the CROP program prepares students to face the challenges of the real world and contribute to building a more sustainable and inclusive future.
