Erasmus Projesi, 2018 - 2020
CRETE project primary objective is to contribute to the cultivation of the most wanted soft and hard skills the 4th Industrial Revolution will request from our graduate students and citizens. The project is called to address the paradox ‘57% of the employers cannot find employees skilled enough to perform as soon as they hired’ and this despite the high unemployment especially in South Europe. During the project, modules and training events will be developed by the partners that will give an introduction to the forthcoming qualifications the 4th Industrial Revolution will demand. Among the targeted skills the CRETE project includes within its plan to develop are the following: Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT), Quantum Computing, Graphene & 2D materials, 5G Communications, Data Science, Embedded Systems, Critical Thinking, Presentation & Writing Skills, Entrepreneurship Skills, Conflict Management Skills, Project Management Skills. To enhance the impact of our courses and training events (Intensive Courses (ICs)), specific teaching methods will be employed and be taught, such as Problem Based Learning (PBL), Project-Oriented Based Learning, Open Science, Blended Learning.
The CRETE project consists of five Higher Education Institutions and two small-medium enterprises (SMEs). The partners were selected based on their expertise in order for the project to be able to have the selected educational outcomes. Moreover, the CRETE project contains four Associated Partners: (1) Erasmus Plus Capacity Building for Higher Education Project named ‘Applied Curricula in Technology for East Africa’ – ACTEA; (2) Obudai University in Hungary; (3)Abdullah Gül University in Turkey; and (4) Balqa University in Jordan.
