One of the detailed objectives of the Project is to increase the competencies of the teaching staff that will be used in the implementation of IIEP. There are 4 training modules (A, B, C and D) aimed at academic teachers, i.e. developing soft skills, developing knowledge about sustainable development in the context of economic policy at various levels, improving skills in simulation-based on artificial intelligence, as well as training in the field of advanced modelling and numerical simulation techniques.
- Training of teaching staff - module A - soft methods in teaching (in English)
- Training of teaching staff - module B - sustainable development and economic policy (in English)
- Training of teaching staff - module C - simulations based on artificial intelligence (in English)
- Training of teaching staff - module D - advanced techniques of numerical modelling and simulation (in English)
Between 30 November and 14 December 2021, the first training of teaching staff - Module A - soft methods in teaching took place. The course titled: "Effective communication with student" was led by Aleksandra Zielazna-Pawlukiewicz.

A.I. am here PPI / SPI / 2020/1/00009".
During these few days, the London School of Architecture (LSA) hosted us within its walls.

- Lewis Kinneir, architect and educator. Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Skyroom, delivery of sustainable homes for key workers in London. Lewis is also the LSA’s Design Tectonics leader and will touch on the approach the LSA takes to teaching in this area.
Among the 4 speakers there was also our representative Ada Nawrocka, who gave a presentation on "New paradigm of urban design".
Our group also visited the LSA building (6 Orsman Road) with architects Waugh Thistleton and reviewed the work of students from London.
2. 7th May 2022 - Fabrizio Matillana, Deputy Team Manager Design & Heritage, London Borough of Islington was speaking about the £6bn council led regeneration project in Meridian Water in Enfield, North London. Fabrizio was Principal Urban Designer, advising the local authority on design matters for Phase 1 and ensuring the delivery of its sustainable objectives and high quality place making.
Later that day, we spent Tuesday at the London School of Architecture observing classes with students. We had the opportunity to talk with students, participate in classes and observe the forms of working on projects.
In the second part of the day, the teaching staff expanded their architectural, urban and historical experience by visiting the Museum of Home and many other inspiring buildings in London.
3. 8th May 2022 - On the last day, we visited the London School of Economics and Political Science.
We had the opportunity to see the building in terms of architecture, functionality and construction.
From the terraces located on the roofs of the building, one could also admire the panorama of London.
The highlight of the day was a visit to the construction site of the ARBOR LSE1 (Bankside Yards) skyscrapers, arranged with Marcus Lee, architect and RSH+P. It was a very interesting experience both in terms of construction and architecture.
