The BRACKET project (Boosting a novel and innovative tRAining approaCh of Key Enabling Technologies) organized their second meeting at the Technological Centre of Furniture and Wood of the Region of Murcia (CETEM) in Yecla, Spain. The InnoRenew CoE, as a partner in the project, is participating in performing background research on key enabling technologies (KET) within Europe and developing open e-learning modules on advanced materials. BRACKET will provide training materials for vocational education and training (VET) learners and trainers.
Dr David DeVallance, the InnoRenew CoE research group leader for Renewable Materials Composites, attended the meeting, where participants discussed recent outcomes of the project and results of the national reports that every partner prepared for KETs in their country. Slovenian educators from the InnoRenew CoE and the Ljudska univerza, Zavod za izobraževanje in kulturo, Rogaška Slatina (LURS) prepared a report on Slovenia that provides a general overview of the national policies for Slovenia with respect to KETs. This report will be combined with other national reports into one covering all of Europe. Additionally, the BRACKET project team discussed and outlined the framework for VET course e-learning modules.
“The InnoRenew CoE is very excited to be working with such a great group of partners in developing VET training materials,” said Dr DeVallance. “We are looking forward to developing training modules related to advanced materials that include engineered wood products and new, innovative renewable-based materials.”
