Project Vetskilling launched

The International Vetskilling project is launched in fall 2023. In a project meeting organized by Roskilde Tekniske Skole, Nov. 22 to Nov. 24, 2023, the main contours of project were named.

Five schools from different parts of Europe work together to develop a digital learning program. It is an excellent example of an initiative within the framework of Erasmus+. Erasmus+ is the European Union's program for education, training, youth and sport. It supports educational institutions in developing partnerships across borders, with the aim of improving the quality of education and promoting European integration and understanding between different cultures.

This particular project focuses on strengthening the generic skills of students taking technical courses. The emphasis is on skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership and problem solving. These skills are crucial to the success of technical projects, especially those related to the energy transition, an area critical to sustainable development and the future of our planet.

The motivation behind this initiative is based on the understanding that technicians of the future must not only possess technical knowledge, but also be able to communicate and collaborate effectively within multidisciplinary teams. This is especially important in projects related to sustainable development and innovation in the energy industry, where the complexity and interdisciplinary nature of the challenges require an integrated approach.

By developing generic skills, the schools aim to better prepare students for the challenges associated with sustainable development and innovation. The curriculum will likely use digital technologies to provide an inclusive and accessible learning experience regardless of students' geographic location.

This project also reflects the growing demand for technical professionals who are able to work in teams and communicate effectively. It recognizes that the success of technical projects depends not only on technical skills, but also on the team's ability to collaborate, show leadership and solve complex problems.

In summary, this Erasmus+ project is a step forward in addressing current and future challenges in the technical sector. It emphasizes the importance of generic skills in addition to technical competencies and aims to form a new generation of engineers well equipped to contribute to sustainable development and the energy transition.
