With a group of students from Segorbe (Castellón) Roger Esteller has carried out a master class with Pili Escuder, about how we are affected by the evolution of technology, global changes and new models of circular economy and servitization. It has been a very effective way to teach, reflect and learn with the students of the Interior of Castellón.
During the past academic year, a group of students interested in these topics carried out a work of reflection, sharing of ideas and analysis of those aspects in which they thought they could collaborate. Now, halfway through the project, we once again summon interested students to start specifying the transmission of good practices. On Friday, January 11, a group of students gathered bringing their experience, knowledge transmission, good work, responsible consumption, awareness in the reuse, a sustainable economy, etc.
As an example of this, we present various ideas from the group of students that will continue to collaborate for the next meeting that will take place on Monday, February 4 at 10 a.m. in the Secretariat of the Universitat per a Majors.
The second official communication of the CLEAR project is available. The objective of this project is to act through education, change attitudes and skills of students, trainers and educational managers, so that we can get a little closer to the objectives of sustainable development.
The next group work meeting will be Friday, January 11 at 10.30. in the spaces of the Universitat per a Majors, in which all the students of the program who are interested can participate.
During the last month we had the opportunity to talk and provide to citizens of Korydallos that are participants to Adult learning projects the concept of CLEAR project. The participants of the workshop are students at the Municipal Centre for Adults’ Learning and all of them were pensioners and they were attending the courses for digital tools. We had a fruitful workshop, based on a deep presentation of the CLEAR project, and a flourish discussion elaborating on people’s questions. Through their course on digital tools they had the access to CLEAR webpage, as well Korydallos’ website and they explored by themselves all the units (photos, texts etc). The most of them were very interested on CLEAR project. They liked a lot the transnational collaboration and they focused on the concept of social justice that had to be the first priority for such efforts. They also mentioned that such projects are very useful for our lives but still we have to be very concerned about institutional bureaucracy and corruption that such projects can be strongly affected by, resulting the loss of their impact to society.
SPI presented the CLEAR project on May 17th, in the third workshop of BioWare project, about Bioeconomy and Circular Economy, that occurred on Instituto Politécnico de Santarém (Portugal).
Universitat Jaume I has taken part in the Erasmus programme since 1994. The programme has been going through big changes since then. The new challenges started with the new programme Erasmus+ in 2014. As a result of that, we are offering mobility possibilities to all agents involved in universities’ development.
The first Staff Training Week organised in our institution is aimed at European Staff coming from partner and non-partner universities who would like to learn more about our facilities, our management of the different mobility programmes and about our teaching and research methods.
On April 25th, the CLEAR project was presented to the participants. You can see the agenda here: Agenda

The educational innovation team of the Senior Citizens’ University, led by Pilar Escuder and Roger Esteller of the Universitat Jaume I, coordinates the Erasmus + KA2 project “CLEAR- Circular Economy Adult Training ToolBox – Knowledge Reuse” since October 2017. Representatives of the UJI have participated in the second meeting of this project that took place on 12 and 13 April at the municipality of Korydallos (Athens).
During the first weeks of the project we are carrying out the needs analysis research to:
