Smart grids and intelligent energy systems play a pivotal role in fostering the sustainable advancement of our civilization. Over the past few decades, power systems, like many other sectors, have undergone a rapid digital transformation. This rapid development necessitates a proactive response from universities, research institutes, industry stakeholders in relation to educational programmes. Educators must rapidly adapt their curricula and teaching methodologies to effectively train the next generation of engineering professionals. While curriculum crafting for new educational programs is inherently challenging, another layer of complexity arises when research collaborations in large consortia are tasked with delivering high-quality education within a given project scope and time frame. This paper outlines a methodology for establishing an educational strategy for such research projects. This approach takes into account the available resources and expertise of the project participants, while embracing modern, learner-centric educational methodologies. It also ensures alignment with broader objectives or frameworks. Furthermore, the strategy incorporates a dynamic evaluation process that runs concurrently with the educational activities. Finally, the ERIGrid 2.0 H2020 project upon which the proposed methodology was developed, is presented as a case study.
