ManuFactUring educaTion and training governance model for IndUstry 4.0 in the Adriatic-Ionian aREa

About the Project:
  • The solution is to implement new technologies brought by the Industry 4.0 (innovation, advanced technologies, computerization, robotics processes, automation, digitalization...) by encouraging sustainable and better management of our “blue “resources (Blue Economy).
  • The main objective of FUTURE 4.0 Project is to design a shared strategy to innovate companies approach to training through a special designed education in today’s digital age (Smart Learning Model).
  • The base for designing a suitable Industry 4.0 Smart Learning Model is using the known technique to help manage front part of innovation process (Technological Road-mapping) and using new strategic planning tools to help envision various futures and creating more vibrant organizations (Foresight tools) to be tested with Universities, companies, R&I actors and stakeholders in each territory applying Triple Helix Approach - the set of interactions between academia, industry and governments.
  • The results will be the foundation for designing of a knowledge, competence and skills training/learning hub - FUTURE 4.0 platform. The platform will be part of the above-mentioned Smart Learning Model and Strategy, implemented and validated through local pilot actions, encompasses effective industrial education and training for innovation, enhancing the University-Industry cooperation.
The aims of the Project are:
  1. fostering the East-West Axis interregional joint collaboration and activities aiming at sharing and designing strategies, models and tools to facilitate a smart industrial shift towards Industry 4.0 and enhance innovation and employability within the industry and related service sectors as logistics at regional level
  2. strengthening the RIS3 development in the 5 covered economic areas, leading to a mutual policy learning on industrial strategies and the possibilities offered by a blueprint process, especially for IPA PPs, tackling the weakness in industrial transformation governance and policy coord. at transnational level amidst countries with interrelated growth trajectories
  3. designing and assessing an Innovative Education and Training Model (integrating 3 drivers of knowledge-based society-EC2010), a framework and operational strategy and diagnostic tools, replicable at EUSAIR level for the growth potential fields of the ADRION/EUSAIR Partner
  4. implementing tailored actions within enterprises for developing competences/skills (upskilling and re-skilling of professional profiles), with KTT (Knowledge and Technology Transfer) methodologies for each region involved. Local Pilot Actions will foster the uptake and diffusion of green and smart innovation and circular knowledge management
