Development of Curricula & Innovative training in Robotics for smart growth of European SME’s

Project title: Development of Curricula & Innovative training in Robotics for smart growth of European SME’s

Project acronym: RoboMatic

Project number: 2015-1-ES01-KA202-016250

Project duration24 months

Project summary:

The new technologies based on innovative robotics and electrical drives have deeply changed the industrial production and energy conservation principles. In order to utilize the improved technologies, SMEs need highly qualified staff, competent in operating with the new robotic-based technologies and solutions and competent in managing sophisticated production processes. Currently, international co-operation in this field of education and training, especially for the needs of SME is insufficient. The RoboMatic project will address this major need of SMEs by uniting the experience and knowledge of two famous technical universities in Europe, one research center, an innovation and technology consultancy firm and one SME consulting company. The project seeks to solve the outlined problems through development of interactive training materials of industrial robotic systems. All materials will be hosted on an interactive web-platform. The proposed e-learning educational approach will be easily transferable to wide variety of manufacturing SMEs as well as vocational and higher educational institutions.

Objectives:

The main objective of the current project is to provide an interactive training in the field of robotics and to assist robotics introduction in manufacturing SMEs. Thus project realization would increase the level of innovativeness of SMEs and finally result in their significantly higher competitiveness on the market.

Target groups:

The current project targets and addresses the problems of manufacturing SMEs’ managers, people employed in SMEs (technicians, administrative staff) as well as vocational students and trainers/consultants in terms of robotics and lack of training means to facilitated innovation technology introduction in SMEs belonging to the manufacturing sector.

Expected outcomes:

The expected intellectual outputs are the following:

  • Report on manufacturing SMEs requirements and constraints with respect to introduction and training of innovation robotic solutions
  • RoboMatic Curricula
  • RoboMatic Methodology
  •  RoboMatic Course and
  • RoboMatic Handbook

All of them will be hosted on an interactive web-based platform, including e-learning approach.

The project will have a great impact on how innovation is managed in European manufacturing SMEs. The project’s impact on them will be in form of robotics training of their managers and employees. Increased innovativeness of their workers will lead to further positive effects. In addition, increased competitiveness of their operations will increase the competitiveness level of European SMEs.
