WARN: Academic Response to Hybrid Threats (610133-EPP-1-2019-1-FI-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP)

Project description:

The new hybrid threats challenge the world, and Ukraine in particular, on every level:- new threats result to unknown and dangerous vulnerabilities of the societies- currently societies lack sufficient knowledge and skills to cope with new threats- present academic curricula do not even remotely prepare to complex hybrid threats.- Ukrainian state officials, regional administrations and ministries dealing with reality of hybrid war, are lacking the knowledge and skills to recognize, classify and counter hybrid threats with required efficiency.

The analysis of Ukrainian curricula in fields of business and administration, information and communication technologies, social and behavioural science, arts, education, journalism and information showed that current curricula tend to be discipline based and do not address hybrid challenges adequately.

The project aims to renew the above listed curricula by introducing unique content that builds awareness of hybrid threats and innovative gamified teaching methods that provide skills and competences to tackle complex threats proactively. The upgraded contents, based on newest EU partner curricula, together with new gamified teaching methods based on AI-inspired adversarial learning, will be used both in MSc degree education and in LLL to train “positive change agents” in diverse professional fields. The change agents will learn to adapt proactively to new complex, hybrid challenges, and to disseminate their knowledge to the society. International community of educators and alumnae (WARN network) will be created to guarantee the sustainable development of the educational content, teaching methods and dissemination after the project.The project will link to diverse stakeholders (ministries, state officials, local authorities, companies) for developing the content and to create real life scenarios as teaching materials for both degree education and LLL intensive courses, and for training them to counter hybrid threats.

Specific and wider objectives:

Project WAN targets the national security and the skill gap in security services created by the emergence of hybrid threats. Security sector alone does not have the skills and resources for countering complex hybrid threats but has to rely on security awareness of the critical fields in the society. Understanding the complex interdependencies and resulting vulnerabilities in key sectors is essential for improving the resilience of the nation and hence, the security and welfare of its citizens.

  • To fill the security skills gap across various professional domains to increase civic resilience to hybrid threats in Ukraine;
  • To adapt study programs in 7 fields of study and to create LLL course on Countering hybrid threats;
  • To pilot the adapted study programs and LLL courses;
  • To create a trans sectoral environment devoted to countering hybrid threats.

Expected project outcomes:


  1. To adapt 11 study programmes in 7 fields of study
  2. To deliver the adapted study programmes and courses
  3. To create a trans sectoral environment devoted to civic resilience to hybrid threats

New courses will be implemented:

  • Civil resilience to hybrid threats
  • Public Discourse as a Component of Information Wars

  • Identify and analyze the requirements and needs to have new learning opportunities for stakeholders;
  • Update master's programs in accordance with the requirements of the labor market, society;
  • Develop new educational opportunities for a wide audience.

Expected tangible results:

  • 2 modernized study programmes “National Security” and “Political Science”;

  • 6 updated syllabi;
  • 3 on-line lecture courses based on new educational content;
  • 9 new training materials for practical and laboratory on a new hybrid teaching methodology;
  • 3 courses for distance learning;
  • 3 courses oriented on professionals for LLL (in “National Security” and “Political Science” and "New hybrid teaching methodology");
  • 3 courses oriented on professionals for LLL (in “National Security” and “Political Science” and "New hybrid teaching methodology");
  • 1 updated educational labs;
  • 1 launched hub of excellence;
  • 60 full-time students in updated curricula (by the end of the project, for 2-times recruitment);
  • 20 trainees in LLL courses (by the end of the project);
  • 1 new hybrid teaching methodology;
  • staff with EU projects experience;
  • 1 Erasmus+ project implemented;
  • partnership agreements with EU and UA HEIs;
  • 12 faculty members certified by NUOA center of professional development for the program "New hybrid teaching methodology".

Impact of the results in the NUOA:

The impact of the modernized study programmes, new and updated syllabi, and new training materials can be considered as:

  • increasing the number of skills and competences relating to the study of hybrid threats that students would be able to obtain studying at the NUOA;
  • developing of the competencies of future specialists in this field, and support civic engagement among young people;

  • use of the experience gained in further work with students and interactions with colleagues;
  • improving the educational process by modernizing teaching methods;
