From 2nd - 12th August 2016, Berta Galan and Javier Viguri have received the course entitled “Professional Development in English Medium Instruction-EMI”, in DCU Language Services, at Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland. For two weeks, they attended a first class academic, social and cultural experience. The program develops the language skills (speaking, listening, writing and presentation), the academic language, the use of technology and different teaching methodologies within the context EMI. Several practice sessions (Teaching Practice) allowed the application of the concepts developed during the course. The course has been funded under the II Call for "Aid for Training of PDI of the University of Cantabria to Teach in English (March 17, 2016)", of the Language Training Area, Vicerectorate for Internationalization.

The research group GER, in its training, exchange and internationalization activities, is involved in the 2016 edition of the University of Cantabria Summer Courses by the active participation in the courses taking place in Suances (Cantabria) coordinated by Dra. Ana Andres Payan from QuIPRe Department. Two courses are related to circular economy: the course “MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES TOWARDS A ZERO WASTE” (27 June-1 July) organized by Eva Cifrian Bemposta from GER group and Carlos Diaz García from Directorate General of Environment of the Government of Cantabria, and the course "SUSTAINABILITY IN BUILDING INDUSTRY (4-6 July) conducted by Dr. Elena Dosal Viñas from GER group and Dr. Carlos Thomas Garcia, from LADICIM, UC. These courses are aimed to bring the students and professional the latest developments in the evolution towards a circular economy and to sustainable practices, which are essential for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
