Universities of the Future

 

The Universities of the Future project will address the existing (and potentially growing) gap between industries and higher education offer by developing new, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning for up-skilling and re-skilling of current workers, stimulating entrepreneurial and digital skills of higher education teaching staff and company staff, boosting curricula adjustment and change and facilitating the exchange, flow and co-creation of knowledge.

 

Outcomes:

- A common body of knowledge on industry 4.0 readiness/maturation of regions/business and related impact on skills shifting, up/re-skilling (a blueprint for cooperation with and for HEIs, businesses and governments).

- Innovative lessons on core topics/main components of the Industry 4.0, targeting students enrolled in HE bachelors/master degrees.

- Continuous training programmes/short-courses on core topics/main components of the Industry 4.0, targeting employees that are interested in re/upskilling their competences.

- A joint post-graduation course built on creative strategies applied to industry 4.0, targeting workers interested in putting into practice pilot projects to accelerate their company’s digital transformation.

- Guiding and supporting resources targeted to HEIs, business and government decision-making bodies and to educators/trainers.

- A robust virtual teaching and learning factory for industry 4.0 populated with tools and resources enabling direct contact of the target-groups with the main components of industry and education 4.0, and complemented by physical facilities/equipment, aimed at supporting the development of the hands-on-experiment and pilot projects.
