Development of Curricula & Innovative training in Robotics for smart growth of European SME’s
Start date: Sep 1, 2015,
End date: Aug 31, 2017
The current project 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. 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 level of innovativeness of SMEs and finally result for them in a significantly higher competitiveness on the market.
RoboMatic will be developed in close cooperation of 5 partners from 4 countries. The project partnership includes organisations with significant background in the field of Robotics. The applicant organisation CONSULTORES DE AUTOMATIZACION Y ROBOTICA S.A. (CARSA) is the Spain’s oldest existing innovation management consultancy firm, possessing over 25 years of tradition and experience in three main areas: innovation, technology and internationalization. PRZEMYSLOWY INSTYTUT AUTOMATYKI I POMIAROW (PIAP) is a research centre dealing with practical aspects of automation and robotisation as well as vocational training for enterprises in this area. Technical University of Gabrovo (TUGAB) is a public university providing degree courses for Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering, electronics, automation, computer science, mechanical engineering, management and social sciences. It coordinates and participates in various educational and scientific projects at national and European level. Tallinn Technical University (TUT) is a co-ordinator between different educational, training and professional establishments, has a good experience in the industry automation, robotics and electrical drives, which match the content of the current project. European Center for Quality Ltd. (ECQ) is a private organisation with good experience in the work with projects under different EU programmes and expertise in quality standards introduction in SMEs. All partners have the necessary experience not only in the respective professional area they occupy but also in transnational cooperation in different EU projects and programmes. This will contribute to the creation of a working and successful partnership within and after the project realization. Expected outputs: 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 intellectual outputs 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 be further impacts. In addition, increased competitiveness of their operations will increase the competitiveness level of European SMEs.
