This project wants to develop a sustainable platform for providing knowledge, skills and competences in the fields of nanotechnology and innovation management in particular to key staff of NT companies or related industry, but also to researchers, intermediaries and other stakeholders of the NT research to market process.

More specifically, the project will develop:

  • the ENEX COMPETENCE PROFILE, structured according to ECVET guidelines,
  • two CURRICULA combining theoretical as well as practice-oriented lessons with methodologies and case scenarios, the one on fundamentals of nanotechnology (materials and processing), the other on assessing and managing innovation processes,
  • one E-LEARNING COURSE, structured in modules, merging both curricula into a novel interdisciplinary and pedagogical concept,
  • appropriate methodologies and GUIDELINES for the validation, assessment and monitoring of the performance of ENEX trainees according to European standards (CEDEFOP 2009).
