FIT4FoF partners meet in Lisbon to offer a workshop on ICoED and present their outcomes at the final event

As part of the Skillman International Forum programme, members of the project travelled to Portugal to offer an online and face-to-face conference to attendees.

Yesterday, 18 November 2021, took place in Lisbon the final event of the European project FIT4FoF that has been active since September 2018. This meeting brings to a close the work done in terms of skills, job profiles, development of educational programmes and analysis of the work scenarios that have been developed within the project. 

This event took place in Lisbon within the framework of the Skillman International Forum 2021, which began on Monday 15th and in which the FIT4FoF project had the opportunity to be involved and explain its development during the days of the Forum, thanks to the round tables organised from Monday to Wednesday.

The day started with a face-to-face workshop, attended by 20 people, where members of the University College of Northern Denmark (UCN) explained to the participants about how the co-design process developed during the project, the ICoED (Industrial Collaborative Educational Design) works. Attendees were also able to enjoy a demonstration of how this method works in a physical format, as in recent months these workshops have only been shown online through the MIRO platform.

Once the workshop was over, the main event began onsite and online, in which all the partners were able to explain the development and conclusions obtained in the different branches of the project: work scenarios of the factory of the future, identification of new job profiles, the previously mentioned ICoED method, the results of the pilots in Italy, Romania, Ireland and Spain and, finally, the presentation of the award for the best European upskilling initiative.

This award was announced at the very beginning of the project, directly linked to the initiatives in the Upskilling Digital Catalogue of Initiatives. The nine FIT4FoF partners deliberated and voted for the best rated initiative out of 53 approved initiatives from 17 different European countries. The criteria chosen for the evaluation were the level of innovation of the initiative, the possibility of application in other entities and countries, the impact or benefit obtained by the workers in the industry, and the complexity of the project.Thus, during the final event it was announced that the winning initiative of this award is the Slovenian company REWO.
