AuToMa — Automation, Technology transfer and Managerial practices for the growth of SMEs, a better employability and the promotion of the entrepreneurship project, Ref. №: 2016–1-ITO1-KA202–005599 has been successfully implemented! The project managed to effectively contribute to the development of high professional skills with specific regard to the fields of automation, innovation and technology transfer and sharing them at national and European level. AuToMa developed an innovative and open training approach, including two specific learning paths (one technical and one managerial) and several advanced tools. AuToMa involves partners from 5 EU countries as follows: AuToMa partnership: + LUISS University, Italy + Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP, Poland + Technical University of Košice, Slovakia + European Center for Quality Ltd, Bulgaria + Consultores de Automatizacion y Robotica S.A., Spain The project was aimed at several specific target groups: + future entrepreneurs and students who want to develop business in manufacturing sector; + entrepreneurs and employees of SMEs who want to improve their qualification or re-qualify; + unemployed people who want to gain initial competences; + universities, research centres and VET trainers that want to improve or update their learning curricula. The ability to produce, manage and perform innovation requires not only scientific and technological knowledge and abilities, but also organizational, managerial, and marketing skills. In this context, it is central to have innovative learning curricula for use of state-of-the-art technologies and this aspect demands to SMEs highly qualified staff. AuToMa project addressed the problem of low and incongruous qualification of students and staff employed in SMEs in terms of automation systems and new technologies. It also provided to employed, unemployed and people that need requalification more opportunities to find a job at national and EU labour markets. Other beneficiaries of the project were industrial organizations (at local regional, national and European levels) that work on induced activities and public organizations that wanted to understand how to finance or support manufacturing SMEs or entrepreneurship in general. Intellectual outputs developed within the project: + Learning Methodology and contents, including State-of-the-art reports on automation for SMEs in each partner country, Context analysis of the innovation adoption, Analysis of project target groups features and needs in manufacturing sector, Best practices portfolio. + Guidelines for the learning outputs directing the learners through the two specific learning paths + Resources and Learning Integrated Area allowing online and offline access to the learning materials and knowledge sharing. + Skills assessment tool aimed at learners to check their progress. + Handbook for AuToMa learners providing at a glance look on the learning materials. + Project website + Certificate of Achievement issued to learners upon the full completion of each learning path.
