What is the overall broader objective, to which the project will contribute?
1. Development of cooperation and integration both among EU and EU and NIS country Universities in education and training on integrated coastal management (ICM) based on the Bologna Declaration principles.
2. Dissemination of wise coastal practices for improving the educational and training processes and ICM development in Europe.
Indicators of progress:

What are the key indicators related to the wider objective?
1. The number of EU and NIS countries Universities using developed ICM MSc course in educational process.
2. Achievement of the best practices according to UNESCO 17 principles for evaluation of pilot projects. It is proposed to apply this approach for assessment of JEP using as estimators indicators of best practices (long-term benefit, capacity building, sustainability, institutional strengthening, etc as described in CSI paper 12, UNESCO, Paris, pp 51-52).
How indicators will be measured:

What are the sources of information on these indicators?
1. Agreements among Universities enforcing co-operation in the ICM educational sphere.
2. Analysis of project reports and results of field monitoring and estimation (1-10) of the indicators of best practices by external expert.
Specific Project Objective/s:

What are the specific objective/s, which the project shall achieve?
1. Elaboration ICM Master's course based on the cross-sectorial multidisciplinary approach and sustainable development principles.
2. Introduction of ICM Master's course into RSHU educational process, the only one university in Russian Federation that has started ICM academicals education.
3. Preparation of CD educational module for wider dissemination.
4. Quality assurance of ICM master programme by means of student mobility and expert assessment.
Indicators of progress:

What are the quantitative and qualitative indicators showing whether and to what extent the project's specific objective/s are achieved?
1. Mutual recognition of the MSc course will indicate that the developed course accomplish with the necessary requirements of cross-sectorality, multi-disciplinarily and sustainable development.
2. Legalization of MSc course by RSHU Authorities and its inclusion into educational process.
3. Preparation of ICM CD-ROM.
4. Expert assessments of educational results of student mobility.
How indicators will be measured:

What are the sources of information that exist and can be collected? What are the methods required to get this information?
1. Agreement(s) related to mutual recognition of ICM curriculum.
2. Documents related with accreditation of ICM curriculum at RSHU.
3. Demonstration of ICM CD-ROM.
4. Evaluation of students participating in student mobility (yearly , 3-months).
Assumptions & risks:

What are the factors and conditions not under the direct control of the project, which are necessary to achieve these objectives? What risks have to be considered?
1. It is supposed that RSHU staff and student knowledge of foreign language is sufficient.
