TERSID is a regional project, to be carried out in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, focused on the renewal of some curricula for the engineering field, to introduce more modern and efficient technologies to be adopted for saving of natural resource (raw materials, fossil fuels, water) as prevention action, or for wastewaters, solid wastes and air pollutant treatment as reduction action. The project will involve partners coming from academic world, industries, National governments and NGOs.The educational aspect is focused on two different levels: academic and professional.
