A successful training session on the topic of popularization of electrical mobility at OE BGK for university lecturers from the Western Balkan countries

A three-day training and meeting took place between 05.12.2023 and 07.12.2023 at the Bánki Donát Faculty of Mechanical and Safety Engineering within the framework of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building for Higher Education (https://bgk.uni-obuda.hu/pelmob/). The purpose of the training is primarily to share educational methods and best practices with the instructors of the participating partner institutions.

The event was opened by Prof. Dr. Zoltán Rajnai, dean of Bánki Faculty, Obuda University, who emphasized the internationalization efforts of Óbuda University and welcomed the representatives of the participating Higher Education Institutions from Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovenia, Greece and Poland. Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Arsic, the rector of the University of Pristina in Kosovska Mitrovica, the professional leader of the PELMOB project, expressed his great pleasure that close cooperation is realized with Óbuda University in the implementation of several successful international projects. The professional leader of the project on behalf of Óbuda University is Dr. Ágota Drégelyi-Kiss, associate professor at the Department of Manufacturing Technology, OE BGK.

The series of professional lectures began with Dr. Zsolt Hajnalka, head of the section responsible for international relations of the Hungarian Association of Vehicle Parts Manufacturers. In his presentation, he highlighted the challenges of introducing alternative drives and presented the possibilities of the Zalazone Automotive Test Track. In his presentation, Dr. György Czifra, lecturer at ÓE BGK, detailed the alternative energy sources in the field of electric cars, especially the solution for hydrogen-powered vehicles.

For the second day of the training, a visit was organized to the Automotive Technology Development Center of the Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus. The Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus plays a decisive role in the development of electromobility and automated driving solutions. During the visit, a presentation was given on the testing phases of electric drives, after which we were able to gain an insight into the work of a laboratory presenting physical tests.

On the last day of the PELMOB project meeting in Budapest, Dr. Balázs Mikó, habilitated associate professor at the Department of Manufacturing Technology, ÓE BGK, explained the relationship between Industry 4.0 and electromobility, after which a visit to the laboratories of the Faculty of Economics followed.

During the training, we hosted nearly thirty people at the Bánki Faculty, and they watched the professional materials prepared by our colleagues with great interest. We closed the first year of the PELMOB project with this training, further the focus will be on the development of curricula and subjects by Higher Educational Institutions of the Western Balkan countries.
