Networked Teaching Quality Bonus

Call for projects

In the dual context of the pedagogical transformation underway in higher education institutions and the A2U site policy, which brings together the Université de Picardie Jules Verne, the Université d’Artois and the Université du Littoral Côte d’Opale, a joint call for BQER projects has been launched. It completes the calls for projects specific to each of the three universities on the themes of educational innovation and student success. It is endowed with an amount of 60 k€ (each university having contributed 20 k€), with a possible breakdown in payroll (discharge or bonus in HQTD), operation and/or investment.

This call for projects aims not only to support the design and implementation of innovative teaching methods, but also to promote the initiatives of teachers who wish to engage in an evolution of their teaching practices in collaboration with colleagues from one or two other universities.

The systems financed will make it possible to disseminate new forms of support for pedagogical transformation within the three institutions, to support their response to the PIA3 call for projects “New curricula at the university”, and to encourage and support research on pedagogy based on the practices implemented.

The HDLCat project, winner of the 2022 call for projects

Transition metal oxides derived from the calcination of Double Lamellar Hydroxides (HDL) constitute a class of materials of great interest for heterogeneous catalysis applied to the environment and energy. In the near future, these materials could replace noble metal-based catalysts, which are currently widely used and efficient, but more expensive. In order to control and improve the structural properties of these catalysts (high specific surface area and pore volume, good thermal stability, excellent dispersion of metal cations), so-called “soft template” methods employing organic molecules such as surfactants, macromolecules or cage molecules are being developed. Incorporated at the time of the synthesis of the HDL precursor or afterwards, these organic agents make it possible to intercalate and judiciously modify the distance between the two cationic layers. The HDLCat project was part of this context and developed new HDL-based catalysts using saccharide agents, such as cyclodextrins as scalable intercalating agents, but also other abundant and cheap anionic disaccharides (e.g. maltobionates). The new materials have been loaded with Co and/or Ni and some materials have shown real interest in catalysis.

The success of this new class of materials for catalytic application was based on the complementary and recognised skills of the three A2U partners (ULCO-UCEIV, UA-UCCS and UPJV-LG2A) in the fields of materials chemistry, catalysis, sugar chemistry and supramolecular chemistry.

The SerGaPro project, winner of the 2019 call for projects

SerGaPro is a serious game for Professional Orientation (Pedagogical Innovation 2019) which is a behavioural simulator using the VTS software. It has been successfully tested in a “Pharmaceutical Industry” version. This project proposes to spin off Sergapro within the framework of the A2U alliance with colleagues from the UFRs of Sciences of Artois, ULCO and UPJV, within the framework of the LCeR. 

In the BQER application, we propose to adapt this game to new formulas centred on the Life and Earth Sciences UFRs of the A2U. It will thus make it possible to federate teams from the three universities within the framework of the Licence Compétences en Réseaux (LCeR). 

Scenarios for internship requests in the Science departments of the three universities will be developed. 

For Artois, in Life Sciences, 3 courses will be concerned: Biology-Biochemistry/Life and Earth Sciences/Life and Environmental Sciences, for common skills: Internship and Project (SMP/PROJ) for which several scenarios could be developed in R & D in the agri-food, environment, biology and health sectors.
For ULCO, three types of training are targeted: DEUST 2 Technicien de la Mer et du Littoral (TML), L3 SV with its 2 courses in Life and Nature Sciences (SVN) and Agri-food and Fisheries (agroH), Master’s degree in Quality of Agri-food and Fisheries Processes (QPAH).
For the UFR Sciences of the UPJV, 4 courses will be concerned in the general L3: biology-cellular physiology/ecology/plant production and agro-food industries and SVTU (CAPES). Two of them include the transversal UE PPI (professional project and professional integration). An opening to English versions may be envisaged in the future.
