UPSKILL - Erasmus+

The Skills for the Digital Future of Plastic Factories UPSKILL

The aim of the project is to enhance the capability of European vocational education and training (VET) systems to respond to the plastics sector-specific labour market needs by designing, piloting and implementing an innovative vocational training programme for plastics machine operators with specific emphasis on digital skills to work with robotics and other smart manufacturing technologies, as well as green skills and entrepreneurial competencies.

The project will:

  • enhance the quality of vocational training;
  •  
  • improve the competence of teachers and plastic machine operators;
  •  
  • make VET curriculum more relevant to the labour market;
  •  
  • provide students and teachers with the opportunity to use digital materials.


All Finnish companies and enterprises, specially those in the field of plastics and vocational education, are welcomed to share their ideas and needs with us. Please contact pirjo.pietikainen a plastics.fi.
