Summary / Abstract: In the times when transition to clean energy is essential, smart grids play a crucial role by enabling the information to be exchanged between the utilities and the customer. However, well-skilled experts are needed in order to bring this new and constantly evolving technology from the academic labs to the daily practice. The Erasmus+ Project MOST (www.smartgridsmaster.eu) addresses the need for academia and industry cooperation by designing a master’s degree program on Smart Grid Technologies, Solutions and Systems. The students will have the opportunity to learn skills directly applicable on the job market where smart grids professionals are currently missing. All aspects of smart grid design and connectivity are covered by the course, including smart grid development and operation requirements. The main innovation of this Master course are the virtual and living labs, which will allow the students to work internationally and to test their knowledge in reallife environment. The new master’s program will be available at three leading universities around Europe: the University of Cagliari in Italy, the University of Cyprus, and the University of Western Macedonia in Greece.
