The aim of the project is to provide practical solution so as to help closing the gap between industry needs/expectations and educational system outputs, in relation Industry 4.0 in the target countries. It will propose a methodology for the design of MSc Curricula that promote a shift from degree focused qualification to competence based qualification. In this context, the consortium will transfer significant know how from the European Educational System that will be used by the partner country Institutions to design an advanced, practical-based MSc Curriculum for Industry 4.0. The absence of such a degree makes the need for its design and introduction pressing and the consortium envisages that this effort will spearhead similar endeavors in other Asian countries.
- new specialized curricula and an innovative MSc programme on Industry 4.0 thus helping build the capacity of the partner countries’(PC) HEIs, improve the level of competences and skills offered, and address the existing absence of a similar programme.
- viable synergies and links with the regional industry (and in particular to the Manufacturing. Agriculture/Aquaculture and Health sectors) in order to address their needs in Industry 4.0 –ready personnel, training needs and enhance the employability of graduates.
- infrastructure by establishing Industry 4.0 Laboratories (I4Ls) that will act as foci for research and innovation in the area thus ensuring that Industry 4.0 education will remain high in the regional priorities agenda for a long time after the project has been completed.
