Sprint 4.0 -Strategic Partnership for Industry 4.0 innovation advanced training
SPRINT4.0 aims at filling the gaps existing in University curricula concerning education and training on Industry4.0 topics. The project aims at achieving new skills and competences for students, on one side directly related to Industry 4.0 domain (thus enhancing the quality of their knowledge), on the other, supporting them in acquiring key competences, such as entrepreneurship (or intrapreneurship), to foster their employability and professional development.
Training courses will be implemented through an innovative approach, strongly student-centred, which will put in the same class students, entrepreneurs, employees, experts from Industry 4.0 domain, in order to trigger co-creation and contamination processes among the participants. Thanks to this training structure, the links between students and employers will be strengthened, giving also the chance to students to discuss about their product/services/business ideas directly with business representatives.
Through the completion of courses’ assignment (prEtotypation of an Industrial 4.0 application), the students will also have the chance of strengthening their innovation skills and creativity, thus putting into practice the knowledge acquired during the trainings.
As main output, the Universities will have a fully renewed set of tools for educating students to Industry4.0 related topics.
