On the 30th July the Italian Pilot of the project “3D Printing in VET”, (project number 2019-1-EL01-KA202-062909), funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Programme (KA2, strategic partnership for innovation and exchange of good practices in the VET field) has been concluded in an excellent way. 

CEIPES organised the second Italian session of the training and this has been done in an online way due to COVID-19 restriction.

The main objective of the pilot was to organize a training based on the content developed during the lifetime of the project.

The second day started at 3 o’clock and the main subject was to give some notions regarding the 3D modeling and all the specifics inherent to the printing in 3D features. This was a great opportunity to share the knowledge with the participants.

The target group involved was a group of teachers coming from the whole Italy. Some of the teachers involved were already familiar with the STEAM world and some of them already knew how to use 3D printing machine.

CEIPES experts provided all the necessary information to deepen the topic by giving to all of them some suggestion on how to implement the 3D printing technology in their curricula. 

The pilot was very interesting, and all the participants were glad to participate in it.

3D printing in VET will last 24 months (1-10-2019 to 30-09-2021) and it involves 6 partners from different countries: Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (Germany), European Education & Learning Institute (Greece), CENTRO INTERNAZIONALE PER LA PROMOZIONE DELL’EDUCAZIONE E LO SVILUPPO (Italy), Escola Técnica de Imagem e Comunicação Aplicada (Portugal), UNIVERSITA TELEMATICA INTERNAZIONALE-UNINETTUNO (Italy), WYZSZA SZKOLA EKONOMII I INNOWACJI W LUBLINIE (Poland), INERCIA DIGITAL SL (Spain) and KEKAPER-REGION OF CRETE(Greece) which is the coordinator.
