Greener and Safer Energetic and Ballistic Systems (GSEBS) is a Strategic Partnerships for higher education program, funded by Erasmus+ programme, Key Action 2 - Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices. The project is run by Military Technical Academy (RO), University of Coimbra (PT), ENSTA Bretagne (FR) and Imperial College London (UK).

The concrete aim of the project is to provide an Intensive Study Programme for MSc and PhD students coming from four prestigious HEIs across Europe. The IP addresses the latest approaches and concepts in the field of greener and safer EBSs, using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) tools and Open Educational Resources (OER). This includes a wide range of multi and inter-disciplinary lectures in the following areas:

- Environmental impact of EBSs

- Greener EM and their applications

- Insensitive EM and their applications

- Materials and techniques for ballistic protection (projectile, blast and shock effects mitigation)

- Modeling and simulation of EBSs and ballistic protective equipment, including use of ICT tools

- EBSs based technologies for materials processing

- Environmental and toxicology Life-Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) of EBSs including the use of ICT tools

The lectures are delivered by distinguished professors and researchers from the participating HEI’s with renowned expertise in at least one of the topics mentioned above. Imperial College and ENSTA Bretagne bring an essential added value through their vast expertise in the educational field.

Theoretical information is experienced in practice by the students through case studies and demonstrations using the most advanced ICT modeling tools and laboratory.

The course teaching activities are followed by conferences, workshops and other multiplier events which assure a wide dissemination and debate of the topics in academia, research areas, industry and governmental organizations.

The course teaching and multiplier events give the chance for all students from partner universities not only to access the contents of the curricula but also to comprehend other educational levels, skills and various cultural backgrounds. The teachers also have the chance to compare and enhance their teaching skills based on the preparatory work, pooling and sharing, or based on the student’s feedback related to the courses they taught.
