On the 3rd of June 2021 the consortium of partners of ALLVIEW project met for the 2nd transnational meeting of the project.
ALLVIEW – Alliance of Centres of Vocational Excellence in the Furniture and Wood Sector (project number• 621192-EPP-1-2020-1-ES-EPPKA3-VET-COVE) is a project implemented under the Erasmus+ programme KA3 – Support for policy reform.
The project is carried out thanks to the cooperation of a22 partners from different European countries, backgrounds, and expertise.
Allview project focuses the attention on the role that centers of professional excellence have in EU VET policy, a topic which today is becoming of particular importance. In particular the project focuses on VET centers of excellence in 2 specific sectors, namely: furniture and wood. Within these two sectors, EU VET schools seek to implement effective laboratory activities for the training of their students through the use of “traditional methods” of wood and furniture manufacturing.
The meeting was organized and managed thanks to the great organization of the coordinator and it was made online due to the COVID-19 situation.
ALLVIEW will involve the main representatives of the two sectors and the regional training authorities with the aim of adapting all the results to the sectoral needs and aligning them with all the main VET policies, ensuring their sustainability.
To support all of this an European Dual Training platform for the Wood and Furniture sector will be realize and the following objectives and related activities will be put in place:
• A framework based on AI/ML for reinforcement learning in order to predict future skills needs and suggest career path planning.
• Development of new curricula and learning outcomes in the following topics: Industry 4.0, Circular Economy, Ambient Assisted Living and Corporate Social Responsibility.
• New tools and teaching methodologies using AR/VR and 3D printing.
• A broad range of mobility actions of students and teachers.
• Blueprint (governance) strategy in the field of Furniture and Wood Sector.
During the 2nd TM each leader of the Work package explained with clear presentations the work implemented up to know. Some of the results are already finalized and in the next period partners will disseminate them through the website of the project and the main social media channels. There are different groups that are taking care of different WPs but at the same time they will work all together to reach the objectives of the project.
Also, a great attention was dedicated to the managerial and Quality assurance aspects. It is important to coordinate and to evaluate the actions that a big consortium as the one of ALLVIEW project is implementing.
