DIEGO project foreseens different results such as



WP1 “Analysis of local needs” is set to know the a) internal needs and available facilities at the beneficiary universities; b) real labour market needs, trends and opportunities.


WP2 “Cooperation for a modern universities” aims at creating the competences into which the new RES courses are implemented and developed.



WP3 “Elaboration of education programme in presence” is based on the results of WP1. It is aimed at designing didactic according to existing resources, for answering needs, following clearly the Bologna process standards, so as to reach an International training level, useful for both Universities exchanges and for easing students access to an international labour market.
  • Didactic materials for n. 6 courses:
  • 1. Solar Thermal Energy
    2. Biomass and Geothermal Energy
    3. Wind Energy
    4. Energy Efficiency&Sustainability
    5. Photovoltaic solar energy
    6. Emerging Technologies

  • Accreditation of courses
  • Didactic laboratories


WP4 “Set up of distance learning device and lessons” aims at promoting the use of innovative tools and at supporting the equal accessibility to the knowledge. E-modules are uploaded on free International platform for distance learning (MOOCs) for the wide access of International students.



WP5 “Delivery of renewable, efficiency, sustainable (RES) modules” starts the third year of the project. Modules are structured for merging theoretical knowledge with practical exercises (problem solving, project works, research) and technical experiences with the didactic equipments.

M&E approach and criteria

transparency and objectiveness

The External Monitoring in DIEGO project is designed and implemented to improve the effectiveness and the relevance of the project action, to explore the results achieved and to enhance their sustainability.

It responds to the following purposes: - To be a practical tool facilitating the project management and the whole consortium in order to work more effectively and efficiently towards the achievements of the project objectives and results; - To contribute to possible specific strategies and tools to encourage informed decision-making for better performances; - To organize responsibilities and timeline in order to collect data and to manage the information needed to inform the required interim reports and to be accountable to the European Commission;

- Moreover, it works as a communication tool that outlines the different roles and responsibilities for each partner, in line with the project design document, with the consortium agreement and with the quality plan in order to overcome the challenges and to take advantage of the opportunities arising during the project implementation. The overall methodology of the M&E performed during DIEGO project implementation is participatory and results-oriented. The indicators are in line with DIEGO logical framework. The main source for data collection are as following: (i) project documentation review; (ii) questionnaires submitted; (iii) in depth interviews; and (iv) participation in the SSC meetings. Data and information generated by the monitoring activity are used to improve the overall project management, to inform decision-making and to propose corrective operations and strategies. In DIEGO project the M&E system is an integral part of the project activities and of the operational management tools undertaken by an external independent consultant in order to ensure the transparency and the objectiveness.
