Project Acronym Name Description Website
SAM Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacturing The Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacturing Project aims to tackle the current European need for developing an effective system to identify and anticipate the right skills for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) sector demands in response to the increasing labour market needs, thus, contributing for the smart, sustainable and inclusive growth of the AM sector.
DRIVES Development of Research and Innovation Vocational Education Skills The aim of the project is to implement the Blueprint objectives for the automotive sector, namely the delivery of human capital solutions to value chain (vehicle production, automotive suppliers and automotive sales and aftermarket services) through the establishment of an Automotive Sector Skills Alliance.
ESSA European Steel Skills Agenda The main objective of the project is to develop a Blueprint for a sustainable steel industry driven and coordinated European steel skills agenda and strategy for an ongoing and short-termed implementation of new skills demands.
ALBATTS European Battery Alliance The Alliance for Batteries Technology, Training and Skills (ALBATTS) is a European funded project with the objective of contributing to the electrification of transport and green energy in Europe, by designing a blueprint for competences and training schemes of the future, in the battery and electromobility sector.
ASSETS+ Alliance for Strategic Skills Addressing Emerging Defence Technologies The project that aims to develop skills in robotics, C4ISTAR and cybersecurity. One of the project core objectives is to ensure that the educational programmes designed for the Defence sector comply with pedagogical requirements and match industrial needs.
SPIRE-SAIS Skills Intelligence for Industrial Symbiosis The project aims to develop an industry-driven and proactive skills strategy that will assist the wider implementation and exploitation of industrial symbiosis and energy efficiency across the energy intensive industrial sectors represented in SPIRE: chemicals, steel, engineering, non-ferrous metals, minerals, water, cement, and ceramics.
EDDIE Education for the Digitalisation of Energy The project aims to develop a long-driven Blueprint for the digitalization of the European Energy sector to enable the matching between the current and future demand of skills necessary for the digitalization of the Energy sector and the supply of improved Vocational Education and Training (VET) systems and beyond.
METIS MicroElectronics Training, Industry and Skills The project aims to implement a new strategic approach to sectoral cooperation on skills for microelectronics by involving the key players across industry, education & training and regulatory/certification bodies.
