IMPROVING KNOWLEDGE AND COMPETENCIES OF AUTOMOTIVE WORKERS FOR THE FACTORIES OF THE FUTURE.
Cardemy is a two-year European project which will create 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 on workers’ skills and competences within a real-world manufacturing environment.
Project will study this methodology and analyze how to implement in other EU countries, improving its adaptation to new market requirements through the integration of an Industry 4.0 perspective in the model.
The automotive sector plays a key role in the European economy and it is a booming industry, which nowadays employs 11% of the European work force. Meanwhile, European automotive industries are seizing the challenge of the factory of the future, also known as Industry 4.0, a new way of industrial production which involves collaborative robots, automatization and total digitalization of the production and maintenance processes.
The question is if our work force is prepared to tackle this challenge, and for this purpose Cardemy has received funding from the Erasmus+ program.
