LUPS receives Erasmus+ Excellence Award

The Ludovika University of Public Service (LUPS) received the Erasmus+ Quality Award for its project titled "Interdisciplinary training on EU security, resilience and sustainability." The award was presented by the Board of Trustees of the Tempus Public Foundation at the "Erasmus+ Opens Doors" conference, held on May 28 at the Park Inn Budapest by Radisson Hotel. The event featured an interactive project showcase, providing an opportunity for participants to present their initiatives.

The awarded project aimed to develop a transdisciplinary course addressing current and future security challenges of the European Union. As part of the project, an open-access online educational platform (EUSecure MOOC) was developed and is now operational. The teaching methods blend traditional and online learning, supplemented with simulation exercises.

Led by university professor Anna Molnár, the program was a collaboration between LUPS and four partner institutions: University of Piraeus (Greece), Fernando Pessoa University (Portugal), University of Salento (Italy), and Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania. The project ran from 2020 to 2023.

The Tempus Public Foundation's Erasmus+ Quality Award recognizes outstanding projects implemented by applicants. It also ensures that awarded institutions/organizations can showcase their knowledge and share their experiences with the professional community participating in the program. Each year, only one award is given per sector within each application category.
