Welcome to the webinar "How can startups help the construction industry become more circular?"



Thu, February 11, 2021

11:30 AM – 1:00 PM (CET time)

Within the collaboration with our University, the Slovenian Construction Cluster (Slovenski gradbeni grozd) invites our professors, builders, engineers, architects, representatives of construction companies interested in the topic to the online webinar "How can startups help the construction industry become more circular?".

The construction industry is the largest consumer of raw materials in the world with a relative share of carbon dioxide emissions.

The construction sector is also an important producer of waste, accounting for 25-30% of all waste generated in the EU, which in majority ende on landfills. For now.

At the same time, this means that the construction sector is an area with many opportunities for innovation, which is becoming even more important given the above-mentioned data, assuming that the global construction market is expected to grow by 85% by 2030.

Construction companies have the opportunity to respond appropriately in a number of areas, from the use of environmentally friendly and smart building materials to reducing emissions from existing buildings at all stages of the life cycle.

The lecture will present the German startup Concular, which supports companies in the construction sector in the use of sustainable practices through a digital platform for intelligent transmission of materials based on data during dismantling and new construction projects and real-time life cycle assessment. The Concular platform thus enables the reuse of construction materials, thus reducing the amount of construction waste, as well as the use of resources and the generation of greenhouse gases.

The platform is useful for builders, portfolio managers, architects, construction companies and retailers who want to reduce both material costs and carbon footprint.

The lecture will also present some successfully implemented projects in Germany, where the startup (and platform) Concular operates.

The lecture will be given by Mr. Dominik Campanella, one of the founders of the Concular. He has experience in computing and management, has worked for Google for several years and has already founded several startups.

The webinar is organized by the Slovenski gradbeni grozd (Construction Cluster of Slovenia) as part of the International Circular Construction Cluster initiative.

The webinar is held in English.

Participation is free.

Registration is here.

After registering, you should get a link to the zoom conference in response to the email received from the organizer after registration.

Seminar for academic staff within the dual degree programme


On February 06, 2021 the academic staff of our University, engaged in the delivery of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL, participated in online seminar on "Student Assessment System: Bloom's Taxonomy".

The headliner and speaker of the seminar was Dr Dilyara Shakirova, the Expert on International Education, Institute for Educational Development of the Republic of Tatarstan, Institute of "Applied Semiotics", Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Tatarstan.

Dr Olga Poroshenko, Head of the International Relations of the KSUAE, made an introduction into the seminar and also announced about the transition to the UEL New Academic Framework within the British programme starting from September 2021.

Dr Shakirova talked about Interconnection of requirements for the quality of education, competence approach and ways to assess learning (education) outcomes; about International requirements for the quality of vocational education. In particular, she talked about the Taxonomy system: how to distribute complexly organized areas of reality into classes and groups; mostly about Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy. Benjamin Bloom, a psychologist at the University of Chicago, proposed the taxonomy in 1956 as a method for assessing the success of teaching process. 

Such method is widely used in assessments of student progress within our dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL. Therefore, the staff engaged in the programme should know the subject very well.

This seminar is an advanced training organized from time to time for our staff and such trainings are mandatory for all programme leaders and module leaders of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL.
