The philosophy of Project
The NEW METRO project is aimed at defining and supporting the development of skilled resources for advanced manufacturing processes as well as the entire Industry 4.0 effort in place across Europe, with a focus on training needs and emerging skills.
Based on the project partners’ best practices and analyzing additional excellence benchmarks, NEW METRO will support an optimum increase of employability in the sector by:
Overcoming the skill/education mismatch and improving the employability in Mechatronics in the I4.0 scenarios, outlining an innovative competence framework valid at European level. The new training paths will focus on the skills related to Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) and I4.0 technologies
Increasing awareness among key stakeholders about the social and organizational changes necessary to cope with new production methods.
Involving regulatory bodies and stakeholders at regional and European level in developing integrated policies to support the I4.0 initiative.
Strengthening European young students attitude towards high level VET courses, improving at the same time the online learning offering (VOOC), work-based learning methodologies (WBL) and ensuring a skill qualification system approved at European level.
A new way of training: the experimentation of the NewMetro model, supported by Federmeccanica, in the experience of Ditro srl and Designa srl
The NEW METRO project, co-funded by Erasmus Plus, generated a training model aimed at the profile of Higher Level Technician for Mechatronics, identifying 17 critical competencies that have emerged from the various working tables of the Partners and the consultation with over 100 stakeholders belonging to the seven Countries involved (Italy, Germany, Austria, Latvia, Greece, […]
Bosch invests in human capital and develops education campaigns for Industry 4.0 to train anyone interested in cutting-edge technologies, including associates and interested parties from other companies. Rolf Najork, a member of the Bosch board of management responsible for industrial technology, states that “because Industry 4.0 strengthens the competitiveness of manufacturing sites, it helps safeguard […]
Energy availability is a crucial issue in the world we live in. We, as mankind, are fully dependent on energy-consuming systems. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, made a much promising invention; they created the world-first concept for a rechargeable cement-based battery. Imagine the prospect of such an invention in the direction of great […]
