In line with the most advanced processes in the world of makers, Arduino, 3D printers, digital manufacturing, and 4.0 industry, the project ‘Refitting Machine’ aims to provide high-quality digital skills and encourage entry or return to the workforce. To achieve these goals, the partnership has identified a specific field of intervention: the recovery of obsolete machinery through Arduino.
In specific, the project aims to: a) Promote a high level of employment through the creation of a competent, qualified and adaptable work force; b) Promote the acquisition of skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) field; c) facilitate the acquisition of skills by promoting multiple learning approaches and contexts and d) provide support to all learners, including those in disadvantaged conditions or with specific needs.
The Main Results of the project are:
- Experts Program Toolkit: it will be used to create a training material that provides high quality knowledge and skills needed to modernize existing machineries in order to make them ‘smart’ and more adapted to today’s requirements of the manufacturing industry
- ICT Tool for Competence Assessment: it will evaluate the knowledge and starting skills of the target group, identification of the needs of the specific target groups that need to be addressed in order to provide them with useful skills so that they can enter the world of work
- Gamified E-learning Platform: it will serve as an open education digital platform for the provision of the training material developed throughout the project.
The project consortium consists of partners from Italy (Coordinator), Cyprus, Spain, Greece, and Romania.
Duration: 01/12/2019 – 30/11/2021
