CARDEMY 

(Erasmus +) 

Role: part of a consortium 

Cardemy was a 2-year European project which created an innovative and high-quality training content, where the acquisition of key skills for automotive industry workers are based in a Learning Factory model. 

Learning Factory is a new model of Vocational Education Training focused on the real industry needs, which pilots’ workers’ skills and competence within a real-world manufacturing environment. 

The project studied this methodology and analyzed how to implement it in other EU countries, improving its adaptation to new market requirements through the integration of an Industry 4.0 perspective in the model.

TurboSUDOE 

Role: part of a consortium 

Development, validation and demonstration of a model based on a network of ‘TRansference BrOkers’ for direct technology transfer between R & D centres and companies in the SUDOE territory, with the goal of improving the transference processes in order to facilitate the market exploitation of the knowledge generated in the SUDOE regions, stimulating the involvement of the private sector through the full alignment of the R & D (offer) with the business activities (demand).

MeMeVET « Mechatronics and Metallurgical VET for sectors’ industries » 

Grant Agreement: 591854-EPP-1-2017-1-DE-EPPKA2-SSA 

Role: part of a consortium 

The project Mechatronics and Metallurgical VET for sectors' industries aims to offer solutions to some of the main issues that impede the free mobility of students and workers in the mechatronics and metallurgical sector. The main goal is to foster mobility across EU in these two sectors with the establishment of a Sector Skills Alliance involving 5 different countries: Germany, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria and Slovakia.  The project has delivered a common curriculum for complementary educational skills requested by the labour market in the five participating countries. The second most important output has been the development of an e-card for EU CV in which all complementary educational skills acquired in mechatronics and metallurgical sectors will be uploaded. The e-card is an outstanding new tool as it will allow young people to easily obtain specific certificate required by the industries in the target countries and to enter faster into the EU labour market.

3ti INDUSTRY 4.0 

(Erasmus +) 

Role: part of a consortium 

The « 3TIndustry4.0 » project is based on an innovative model. It will connect two types of professionals in education: teachers in higher education and industry trainers. This encounter will enable the transfer of skills between the two groups of professionals and meet the needs of industry4.0.  

The core of 3TIndustry4.0 is the creation of online training modules and of a network of collaboration throughout Europe. The framework of each of these modules is the presentation of a case study with supplementary theoretical material.  

Each module will be developed in the form of a webinar. The participants will access an online presentation during which they will be able to interact with the lecturer. The webinar recordings will constitute a database accessible from a platform created as part of the project.  

This free digital platform linked from the project website will compile the training materials and also serve as a tool for data sharing and a forum. 3TIndustry4.0 will thus create and develop a European network for the sharing of teaching practices between training professionals who can exchange via the platform’s discussion board during and after the end of the project. 

The 3TIndustry4.0 modules will also be useful to introduce students of higher secondary level to digital technologies and different jobs in industry.

LEAN40SG 

(Erasmus +) 

Role: leader of a consortium 

The project includes the development of a research study on the convergence between Lean methodologies and industry 4.0 enablers not only in the participating countries and their companies, but in the scientific and technological field of all of Europe.  

Once the scope of the application has been determined, an analysis will be carried out to characterize the entire application and its systems. Next, and once the model has been validated by companies and training centers, the application will be developed. Finally, four pilot actions will be carried out in vocational training centers to test the tool.  

Social research techniques, systems analysis methodologies, agile methodologies will be used for the development of mixed software and hardware applications, and evaluation studies of didactic methodologies.  

The fundamental result is the creation of an open source community around Lean 4.0, and a tool based on simulation games, to design, execute and measure the results of training actions in Lean 4.0, bringing training closer to a real environment of production. This methodology will impact on the problem of lack of specialized training in Lean 4.0, incorporating.
