University of Pitești (UPIT), Romania, hosted, on August 26-29, 2019, as a partner, the third transnational meeting of Erasmus+ project ”Web-based laser safety modules for vocational education/training”. Visit to the University of Pitești of representatives of project partners was coordinated by lect.univ.dr.Sorin Fianu, Department of Environmental Engineering and Applied Sciences (DIMSIA) of the Faculty of Sciences, Physical Education and Computer Science.
Lect.univ.dr.Sorin Fianu (UPIT): “University of Pitești is a partner in this project, alongside Hungary, Latvia, Bulgaria, Germany. The project aims vocational education. We will develop a web platform that will contain a course consisting of three modules, to train staff working in the laser field, in order to improve their knowledge about safety of laser use”.
Prof.univ.dr.ing.Lyubomir Lazov, representative of project coordinator, Rezekne Akademie of Technologies (Latvia): “Significant advances in laser technology have been registered in all the countries of the European Union over the last 15 years, which is why we chose this project topic. The modules we will develop will be on the Moodle platform, which allows access to everyone who wants to deepen their knowledge in the field of laser safety. Project runs in Germany, Latvia, Bulgaria and Romania. We develop modules in the national languages of the partner countries, but the project is not necessarily just for these countries. We thank the University of Pitești for hosting the third meeting and we hope will continue to collaborate after the end of the project”.
The third transnational meeting of the project, held at the University of Pitești, Romania, ended with a visit to ELI-NP (Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics) site in Măgurele, where representatives of the project partners visited the laboratories of the Institute and were briefed on the infrastructure of the most powerful laser in the world. Partners were also provided with information on safety rules in the use of lasers, which apply within the ELI-NP.
