The main project objectives achieved are following:
- Design 2 VET programs for Data Science and IoT that are based on multi-disciplinary and learning-outcomes oriented curricula and combine technical knowledge and skills with transversal skills and competences.
- Design 2 reference models of knowledge, skills and competences for Data Scientists and IoT professionals in accordance with well-known European frameworks, such as the e-Competence Framework and the European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations.
- Pilot the VET programs in three phases (online Data Science/IoT training, online transversal skills training and work-based learning) and certify the learning outcomes obtained.
- Disseminate the project results to target groups and engage them with the project to maximize its potential impact.
- Take actions towards the sustainability of project outputs and their exploitation by relevant stakeholders.
