TEFFIC – Transforming Educational programs For Future Industry 4.0 Capabilities
This project aims at identifying and addressing the gaps in skills between industry needs and the future competences of engineers and technicians focused on the emerging domain of Industry 4.0. The project addresses the identified needs and challenges through the development of an overall ‘Educational Framework’, which is the core output of the project. The Educational Framework should be regarded as a ‘toolbox’ for educators within the domain of Industry 4.0. The aim of the Educational Framework is to support the educational activities and decision making at each of the partnering institutions, addressing and minimising the gaps in skills and competences between industry needs and the educational capabilities.
NetKom - Netzkompetenz für eine digitalisierte Arbeitswelt 4.0 v.2
The digitization of the world of work, especially in the context of Industry 4.0 and a new digital learning culture, requires learners to have expanded skills. In addition to specific professional core competencies, skilled workers must also have broad, interdisciplinary competencies to successfully face the changes in industrial production and in society. This implies correspondingly professional teachers who prepare young people as best as possible in the context of training and further education for the professional requirements. There are challenges for the teachers, on the one hand to understand the dynamic development of the technologies for themselves and on the other hand to establish suitable learning implementation concepts in the courses.
For this reason, the strategic partnership from five European countries (Norway, Germany, Lithuania, Austria, and Portugal) has set itself the common goal of developing new approaches to the professionalization of teachers in European vocational education and training in the context of Industry 4.0 to try out.
DigiDemo - Digitizing products – Creating demonstrators for Future Education
DigiDemo is a European collaborative project aiming at developing pedagogic demonstrators to train engineering students in designing, developing and commercialising connected products considering ecological requirements. By this, DigiDemo contributes to the competitiveness of European industry and to the requirements of European sustainability goals such as the European Green Deal.
A total of 20 demonstrators will be created marrying mechatronics and IoT topics. Demonstrators will respond to different levels of complexity and address students at different levels of their studies.
