The specific objectives of the project are:
creating flexible learning package for work-based learning aimed at providing fundamental technical knowledge on the topic of Industry 4.0
creating thorough methodology for WBL current and future (VET students/ apprentices) SME employees on the topic of Industry 4.0 and thus boosting SMEs’ capacity for transition by nurturing the necessary skills for the “factory of the future”
iNDUCE 4.0 addresses the needs of the following target groups:
Managers of manufacturing SMEs
Heads of departments (production, logistics, etc.) in manufacturing SMEs
Future employees of manufacturing SMEs (vocational students/apprentices), graduates from technical specialties
In the lifetime of the project, the following intellectual outputs will be developed:
O1. State-of-the-art analysis on the knowledge & skills gaps on the topic of Industry 4.0 and the requirements on work-based learning (WBL)
O2. INDUCE 4.0 training course
O3. INDUCE 4.0 Practical methodology for WBL
The overall long-term impact sought by the project is to contribute to diminishing the skills & knowledge gaps between skills provided by VET and the ones sought by employers in the manufacturing sector for the factory of the future, through the creation of sustainable VET-business cooperation.
