Micro and nano-electronics are one of the strategic global technology sectors. European companies in this field need highly skilled engineers and technicians to remain competitive on the world market. The EU project EuroTraining contributes to cover these needs by providing access to training that supports the industrial take-up of nanoelectronics applications.
In order to make high quality training in the field of micro/nano-electronics available for European industry and research, EuroTraining has developed the multimedia internet platform:
It offers pan-European access to nearly all English language training provided by national course providers throughout Europe and addresses engineers from industry as well as researchers and university teachers. The platform provides links to over 1000 training courses, summer schools, downloadable courses and university teaching materials. Course providers can announce their training events for free on the platform and universities have the possibility to quickly disseminate their knowledge and expertise by up- and downloading freely available teaching materials.
The EuroTraining project was launched in January 2013 and includes five partners: COREP from Turin (Italy) and FSRM from Neuchâtel (Switzerland), both specialized in continuous education and technology transfer, the technical universities of Budapest (Hungary) and Denmark and the research organization CEA-LETI in Grenoble (France). The project is supported by the EC and will run for three years.
