EUROPEAN CENTRE OF VOCATIONAL EXCELLENCE IN MICROELECTRONICS

620101-EPP-1-2020-1-BG-EPPKA3-VET-COVE(2020 – 2024)

ECoVEM project brings together VET centres, polytechnics, industrial associations, social partners to establish European Cooperation platform of Vocational Excellence in Microelectronics to tackle the challenges of: digitalisation, artificial intelligence, green technologies, gender equality and technology, integration of migrants. ECoVEM builds on and complements the strengths of national VET systems in countries with more-advanced VET and supports the not so advanced regions to achieve VET excellence. ECoVEM implements innovative instructional approaches towards life-long capacity to self-regulate learning, hard skills and soft skills using the ecosystems-based theoretical models and performance support systems.

Outcomes and Impact

ECoVEM Objectives

  • Networking of CoVEs, industrial and social partners to share ideas, and experiences towards vocational excellence in microelectronics
  • To develop innovative VET curricula for EQF 3 to 8 in Microelectronics in collaboration with companies and social partners
  • To disseminate the microelectronics achievements in digitalisation, green energy, robotics, space technologies and medicine to raise the attractiveness of VET and microelectronics through open days, international schools and competitions
  • To ensure sustainable governance at national and EU levels
  • To tackle non-discrimination and social inclusion in VET focusing on the gender dimension of employability in the sector and VET for immigrants
