The “MicroLearnings for trainers and teachers in VET systems” objective is to produce the training material to address some of the soft skills apprentices require as well as helping trainers to understand learning needs and expectations of the new generation.
Soft Skills for Hard Hats project will create online, semi immersive interactive scenarios aimed at first level construction supervisors to help develop soft skills. The project focuses on 4 different soft skills: teamwork, communication, leadership and problem solving.
The aim of the research is to evaluate the energy and environmental performance of innovative building fabric technologies for low energy retrofit of buildings applied in Coventry University (Phase Change Materials, Vacuum insulated panels, Electrochromic windows, Aerogel mortar and Photovoltaic ventilated façade) and other new materials discovered by the initial state of the art of the PhD project.

This project aims at full understanding of the structural behaviour of FRP-strengthened curved RC beams under combined bending, shear and torsion loadings, by analytical derivations, lab experiments and advanced numerical simulations. Analysis and design guidelines for practical strengthening will also be proposed.
Originality, significance and rigour are at the heart of our work and our contribution to economic, social, cultural, policy-influencing, or practice-enhancing research projects is substantial. We have developed two types of research centre that focus our investment and provide greater critical mass. Read more…
