November 2018 – November 2022

 

The project in short

First: Research the local situation: skills needed at the labour market – skills taught at the universities – local capacity in HR, IT and infrastructure

Second: Develop technology courses in automation, industrial electricity, renewable energy, CAD/CAM, industrial design and production

Third: Provide industrial equipment for technology labs and supporting learning tools

Fourth: Training in the EU and Africa

All supported by digital tools for project management, course development & quality assurance Key ideas are openness, collaboration, synergy and respect.
