General Information



What is an Erasmus - Intensive programme (IP) An Intensive Programme - IP, is a short-term programme of study at a specific topic, which brings together students and academic staff from universities from different participating countries. The main IP objectives are to:
- encourage efficient and multinational teaching of specific topics,
- enable students and teachers to work together in multinational groups,
- gain new perspectives on the topic being studied,
- allow members of the teaching staff to exchange views on teaching content,
- test new teaching methods in an international classroom environment.

What is the LiDe LiDe aims at contributing to design issues using light (daylight or artificial light) as a design tool. The thematic area of lighting to be served by this IP is multidisciplinary. LiDe offers an intensive summer course on three thematic topics: (i) Light & technology, (ii) Light art & culture and (iii) Urban master lighting planning. The course will include lectures and training.

The target group of the LiDe-IP consists of undergraduate and postgraduate students from various scientific disciplines (electrical and environmental engineering, architecture, designers and artists) and Universities across Europe.
32 students from 8 participating countries will attend the above IP-course. 5 ECTS will be awarded to the students that will successfully attend the course.

The main activities of LiDe concern an intensive summer school on Lighting Design as mentioned in the topics above. Each topic will consist of teaching (lectures) and training (experiments, computer simulation, Lighting-Design applications and team projects). Since LiDe is a design course mixed with knowledge on technology and physics, the final activity will consist of a team project where all knowledge acquired in the summer school might be implemented. In order for the summer school to run smoothly, careful design will be taken in advance, i.e., organization and administration of the LiDe, structure and contents of the summer course and finally the evaluation of the whole course.

Which costs can be covered? The IP-Programme is financially supported by Erasmus-LLP. The financial support for the LiDe 2012 for students and teachers is as follows:

For students: The eligible travel costs will be calculated on the basis of real costs. EU will cover the 90% of the total travel costs up to a maximum of 420 Euros. For the payment of travel costs the flight ticket invoice, boarding passes are strictly necessary to be kept and deposit upon arrival. Taxi payment is not accepted as travel costs. The subsistence costs for the 14 days are 280 euros. This payment will be performed at the end of the course.

For lecturers: The eligible travel costs will be calculated on the basis of real costs. EU will cover the 75% of the total travel costs up to a maximum of 420 Euro.
