The technological development as well as the growing readiness towards the use of smart devices has changed the way we think, plan and produce.
The introduction of digital models and technological solutions has led to the redefinition of the structure of industrial products, the technologies used to create these products as well as the whole supply chain. The digital evolution changes the organization existing in the industrial sector, transforming both roles and competences of most professional profiles employed.
This evolution of European industries which is supported by digital solutions is referred to as “Industry 4.0” and it is basically the industrial era that we are currently stepping into.
Naturally, this new era presents new challenges and needs. Thus, the project addresses the mismatch that has risen between demand and supply of skills in the sector as there is a growing need for employees to be re-qualified and re-educated in order to meet these demands.
Overall, the aim of the project “Digital Training Toolbox to FosteR EU’S IndusTry 4.0 RevoluTion” -RESTART for short- is to involve the industrial sector directly in the transformation of education and training systems, in order to provide the means to teach digital skills that are consistent with the technological and industrial developments.
