The iPEN project targets to cultivate and offer training in three sections: (1) in photonics skills requested from the nanotechnology & market needs; (2) in soft skills most requested from the market needs; and (3) in teaching, offline and online, skills of the academics in order to become better teachers.

The iPEN modules are divided into categories regarding their duration: in long and short modules. The former last 10 lecture sessions, (2 hours per lecture session – total 20 hours) and the latter last 5 lecture sessions (2 hours per session – total 10 hours).

The iPEN photonics oriented modules are divided into two categories: fundamental and technical modules. The idea behind the project is its modules to be able to be exploited by any academic within existed courses or to use the iPEN modules as lego bricks and build a new course.

All the iPEN module material is uploaded into the iPEN Moodle educational platform
