The MONTUS project is one of six French projects in the framework of Erasmus+ Capacity Building program that aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernizing Education, Training, and Youth work. This program funds “transnational partnerships between educational institutions and organizations, training and youth programs in order to promote cooperation and development”. MONTUS comes directly after TORUS Erasmus+ capacity building program (2015-2018) with the ambition to develop research on cloud computing in the environmental sciences and promote its education in the countries of South East Asian partners.
MONTUS gathered around the University of Toulouse 2 Jean Jaures, the National School of Architecture (ENSA Toulouse), the International School of Information Processing Sciences (EISTI, Pau campus), University of Ferrara in Italy, University Brussels Vrije, Faculty of Engineering and Technology of Vietnam National University (Hanoi), the Hanoi Architectural University, the Nong Lam University of Ho Chi Minh City, the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT – Pathumthani, Thailand), Walailak University (Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand) and two Cambodian institutions in Phnom Penh: the Royal University of Fine Art and the Institute of Technology of Cambodia. Three associated partners join MONTUS: French Agency of Francophonie (AUF – Asia Pacific, Hanoi), Meteorological Environment Earth Observation (MEEO – Italy), Institute of Agriculture and Environment (IAE, Hanoi) and HUPI cloud computing society (France). In total, it’s 60 permanent members who are working for MONTUS during three years with height workshops alternatively in Europe and Asia.
The strategy of the MONTUS project aims to organize thematic and practical workshops and publish reference books education, scientific. MONTUS will also deliver practical solutions deployed at three basic levels of cloud computing (infrastructure, platform and software) in the partner countries with computer hardware funded by the project (installed in Hanoi, Pathum Thani and Phnom Penh).
Walailak University will host the workshop of HUPI (cloud computing system) application of environmental data from remotely devices on February 2021.
