Project Goals and Objectives

Circular economy challenges require a well-trained workforce with high analytical, creative and technical skills, appropriately integrated into the European qualification frameworks and system. The purpose was to develop and certify a 1-year post-secondary non-tertiary education pilot course that can be transferred at European level and be adopted by the EIT RawMaterials Academy as a general framework for future VET (vocational education and training) courses.
