Presentation of SALEIE- project supported by the EU-EACEA in the framework of Lifelong LearningThis paper presents the objectives and actual results of the EU supported project which runs fromOctober 2012 to November 2015, named SALEIE - Strategic Alignment of Electrical andInformation Engineering in European Higher Education Institutions.The EU identifies “New Skills for New Jobs” as an imperative for the future. This projectfocuses on Electrical and Information Engineering (EIE) modules and programmes aligned tothe “new” jobs of the future – those in the key global technical challenge areas. The projectoffers a team of EIE technical expert academics who are very well placed to both propose newcurricula, but also to develop models sensitive to new teaching methods and the needs of alllearners. In the SALEIE project there are 45 European universities. The project sets out to firstlyexplore and then provide models for ways in which Higher Education Institutions of Europe inthe Electrical and Information Engineering disciplines can respond to current challenges. This isone of the projects under patronage of the EAEEIE (European Association for Education inElectrical and Information Engineering), which is a European non-profit organization, withmembers from nearly seventy European Universities, most of them teaching in the area ofElectrical and Information Engineering.The specific objectives of this project are to produce: • Model programme and module curricula in the current global technical challenge subjects, like: green energy, the environment and sustainability, communications and it, health, and modern manufacturing systems including robotics. • Models for maximizing accessibility of programmes to all learners irrespective of their background or personal challenges, also including disabilities like: dyslexia and dyspraxia; visual and audio impairments, Asperger, autism, depression, anxiety. Models which will ensure all learners equal opportunity to education. • Models for programme and module specifications to enable HEIs and employers to have greater understanding and clarity of student knowledge and level of achievement. SALEIE project includes also following activities: • A survey of existing programmes in the key challenge subjects including content details • A review of the integration of generic, transferable competences appropriate to employment in key challenge area modules. • A collation of examples of best practice examples in the key challenge subjects • A survey of the project partners of the scale of diversity of disabilities and widening participation practices across Europe. • A review of how HEI's industrial partners view support to learners • The design and development of best practice support models for different types of disabilities and specific needs.
