Funding:Programme; ERASMUS+. Call; EACEA-40-2016. Action; VET-Business Partnerships on Apprenticeships/Work-based learning.
Timeline:Start; October 2017. Duration; 2 years
Coordinator:Novamais - Servicos De Consultadoria Em Inovacao Tecnologica
For HALPIN:Project Manager & lead researcher; Paul Shanahan
Overview:ONBOARD - Development of technical profiles and training curriculum for the ports and logistics' sector. Work-based learning (WBL) models and strategies are crucial for increasing youth employment opportunities and the enterprises competitiveness in the global market. It is essential for Europe to invest in the transfer and implementation of WBL models and strategies to its VET systems and by this way promote a high-quality VET offer, ensuring that knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired during the period of training are relevant to labour market needs. Additionally, it is widely recognised that the maritime is one of the most strategic sectors that need to be more explored and potentiated by some of the MS of EU. These are the two main challenges to which Onboard project expects to answer, by designing, implementing and validating an apprenticeship's model for ports and logistics supporting new VET profile and curricula, fostering an effective cooperation structure between VET and business of the maritime sector.

Overview:CAMELOT - C2 Advanced Multi-domain Environment and Live Observation Technologies. The CAMELOT consortium have identified common challenges in the evolution and adaptation of existing assets and systems to the evolving challenges witnessed across EU borders; Employing unmanned systems in support of surveillance activities, Integrating new assets and sensors into existing communications and information infrastructures and Assimilating increasingly complex situational pictures in 3 dimensional space. With an emphasis on UxVs, the CAMELOT project intends to fill these gaps in terms of standards for C2 systems for heterogeneous platforms and sensors by validating enhanced capabilities and new functionalities built upon frameworks following open and well defined interfaces.
Theme(s):Maritime Operations; Safety, Security & Defence
