The aim is to bring innovative training methods to SME manufacturers so they can better supply the needs of their markets, which include larger industries.
We are looking at the current state of the art and other relevant learning methodologies. We are investigating the requirements and potential in three different industry sectors, with the intention of creating solutions that can deliver benefits to the broader SME sector generally.
The three industry sectors are:
- supplies and maintenance for the helicopter industry
- fitting out luxury yachts (furniture making)
- the textile industry
The project will be completed late 2015 by a consortium in eight countries. It is supported with €5.9m funding from the European Commission, to further its aim of stimulating advanced solutions for fast and flexible deployment of learning opportunities in the workplace.
