The final consortium meeting and the final conference of the project AEERO took place on the past 22nd and 23rd July, at CONFINDUSTRIA, Genoa.
At the conference, partners presented the project results to relevant stakeholders in the field of aeronautics and technical training institutions. Other European experiences that regard on the job training at different industries were exploited. Thus, the conference counted with presentations of STAM and ITALIAN WELDING INSTITUTE best practices examples.
AEERO project aims to equip people with the right skills needed for jobs in aerospace; a sector with enormous potential and need for growth in the face of non-EU competition. The size of potential growth for the sector is indicated by the unparalleled demand which will see the number of passenger aircraft in service more than double over the next 20 years.
AEERO creates an innovative online learning APP resource in English. The resources will be designed to meet user needs and contain easily accessible, media rich learning materials and resources that are pertinent to the vocational skills required by engineers across the EU aerospace industry, from supply chain to preventative and breakdown maintenance.
