We are very grateful to the Obel Family Foundation, who has contributed by donating a full UNESCO Professor to lead the Aalborg Centre. The donation is over a period of five years.
The Poul Due Jensen Foundation – Grundfos-fonden – has granted a donation of DKK 300.000 to the Aalborg Centre for PBL in Engineering Science and Sustainability. The donation is awarded to contribute to research on PBL methods. The donation will be used for developing an interactive, “free”, open source website with in-depth case study of the project “Shanzu” in Kenya. The case will be an interactive digital case on many of the dilemmas that engineers face in their work.
The Aalborg Centre offers a unique platform for networking and creating partnerships. In order to meet the need for tomorrows engineering competences, concrete actions are developed to improve engineering and science education.
The Aalborg Centre invites for partnership and co-sponsorship to a series of activities and welcomes private foundations and corporates to contribute to these activities. There will be several opportunities and below is just listed a few. Please contact UNESCO professor Anette Kolmos for any further information. firstname.lastname@example.org
