The last transnational meeting of the E3D+VET project was held on March 26th 2020.

This time the partners of the consortium met in a Skype conference due to the world emergency caused by de COVID-19.

E3D+VET is a project involving six partners from different European countries: CEIPES (Italy), CETEM (Spain), STP (Slovenia), Pristálica (Spain), KIT (Germany) and SEMKA (Germany), funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme, Key Action 2 (Strategic Partnerships for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices).

The main purpose of the project is to train teachers by focusing on the acquisition of CAD modeling and 3D printing skills, including them in traditional teaching. The use of this technology in secondary schools will also improve students’ transversal educational skills.

During the meeting many activities were carried out and the partners presented the all results of the project.
in particular the meeting started with the presentation of the Coordinator KIT about the Project Management & Financial issues. Then CEIPES explained the results of the Information Promotion and Dissemination activities taken during the all project lifetime.

STP presented the Exploitation and protection of results and CETEM the Quality Assurance and Risk management results.

In a second moment CEIPES presented the results of the 2 pilot phases, in Italy and Germany, carried out in the different schools and association involved in the project and SEMKA presented how they validated the project results in its school system.

STP realised a great overview about the 3 webinars that have been performed during the last period of the implementation of the project and in the last 30 minutes partners thanks CETEM managers realised a brief workshop to generate some ideas for the sustainability of the E3D+VET project.

The partners finally said goodbye and expressed their enthusiasm in completing this project. In addition, the tools created will actually serve to implement 3D printing technology within schools and to give technical skills to teachers.
