COLOSH, a project by the Faculty of Safety Engineering of VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic, has been approved and will start on 1 November, 2024.
The aim of the project is to build the capacity and readiness of the partner institutions for an effective transition to international digital learning. This will be achieved through the innovative COIL approach, the effective use of digital technologies and the development of related skills for teachers and students. The project responds to the need for digitalization, internationalisation and practice-orientation of higher education in occupational safety and health (OSH).

This project, coordinated by LIFELONG LEARNING PLATFORM (LLLP) aims at ensuring more inclusive organisations, more inclusive education approaches and actions, through a capacity building process to better face and respond to current and future societal challenges.
iBOX consists of an interdisciplinary, bottom-up process, involving key stakeholders in the design of innovative training resources collected in an online platform with the goal of supporting the digital transition, access and participation in learning processes and inclusion and diversity strategies in the sector.
One main output of the project is a Compendium of inspiring practices for Inclusion and Diversity in Education and Learning


Following the ENETOSH side event on 4 June, Ulrike Bollmann, President of ENETOSH, gave a speech on the risks and potential of digitalisation for teachers at the EUROPEAN FORUM ZAGREB 2024 on 5 June: teachers are the cornerstone of a healthy and safe digital education for the next generation and thus also for the quality of digital education. The focus of the lecture was on the challenges of implementing AI-based tools for teaching, learning and supervision and administration at schools.

The 18th ENETOSH Steering Committee Meeting took place on 4 June as a side event to the EUROPEAN FORUM Conference 2024 ’Be fit for the digital age!’ in Zagreb.

On 10 June 2024, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between The Institute for Global Safety Promotion (IGSAP) and ENETOSH in the presence of a Japanese delegation and other distinguished colleagues.
This MOU sets out ENETOSH's participation in the Global Initiative for Safety, Health & Wellbeing Week (GISHW) at EXPO 2025 in Osaka:
For the first time since the first World's Expo in London in 1851, occupational safety and health will be represented at an EXPO with the GISHW.

Report by IFUT

The Irish Federation of University Teachers (IFUT) is a trade union representing university staff across Ireland. It represents many grades across university branches including lecturers, researchers, tutors, librarians and other grades. IFUT is the only trade union in Ireland which exclusively organises workers in universities. In 2023, IFUT published a report titled "Precarious Employment in Higher Education in Ireland."

IFUT is currently in the process of revisiting the research to determine whether the situation is improving or worsening, strives to address the findings and engages with employers across the sector to secure improvements for union members.
